flying_pig (1694) - SCOTLAND - DEC 14, 2017
330ml bottle from Fenwick's, Newcastle:
Quite a hop-filled beer but one that was overly sweet & lacking a balance which made it a difficult one to drink too. The beer started well & the nose in particular was a good one thanks to the surprising addition of some coconut to go with the vanilla & caramel notes but when these carried over to the taste then the beer seemed overdone & began to turn sickening a little further on. There was some interesting flavours & a nice variety to this one from Wylam but it was a little sweet & overpowering for me so it's not one that I'd pick up again sadly.

Bottle from Real Ale Newark. Hazy amber colour with a white head. Aroma herby and spice. Taste light sweet, to mid bitter. Medium body.

evergreen0199 (3631) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2017
Bottle purchased from Honest Brew. A hazy orange coloured pour with a healthy white head on top. Typical sorachi, lemon grass aroma. Tastes of sorachi, citrus, lemon, slight coconut. Not a bad effort but I found this quite bitter, would have preferred a little more sweetness.

Moderate sweetness and bitterness, touch salty. Medium body, slight oily and creamy texture, soft carbonation but with fizzy mouthfeel. Finish is dry. Pretty decent.
