355ml bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£2.60):
Clear, light amber colour with a thin bubbly head to start that quickly turns to a patchy lacing on the top.
Weak on the nose, particularly considering it has been dry hopped. There is some earthy hops but overall the subdued malts and dry, toasted aroma seems to dominate the nose.
Citrus in the taste is more noticeable than it was in the nose and the hops are more upfront as well with a definite dry hopped taste. There is some pine and a little grapefruit that is followed up with the earthy and toasted malts from the taste.
Medium with lively carbonation and a nice balance to the beer. Pretty smooth and easy to drink with a touch of spice and a light bitter end.
A slow starter in that it wasn't at all what I was expecting, particularly from a beer with the words 'dry hopped' on the label but once the beer had time to settle and open up a little this became more apparent in the taste. A nice beer that slowly grew on me and turned out okay in the end.
