The beer color is pale yellow, a little bit cloudy with a very minimal head that disappear quickly. The aroma is fruity, some lavender. Nice fruity aroma very inviting. The taste is not very fruity. Its there, but very subtly. Woody, Earthy for the bitterness. Its bitter. Thin body. It warms the palate, the alcohol seems higher than 5%. A very nice beer.

Appearance. Very pale in the glass this beer raises a good head. It has a lot of small CO2 bubbles and holds its head well.

Smell. There is a smell of gooseberry leaves off the glass rather than gooseberry fruit, but it has a clean crisp smell that invites a taste.

Taste. Really very smooth for having gooseberry in the brew, this beer has a decent aromatic hop finish and a smooth early pallet.

Mouthfeel. A little dry as you would expect from the gooseberry but here is also a slight metallic note as well.

Overall. Really very pleasing and I can see why this beer was originally brewed to slick the thirst of the harvest workers. Fresh, light and crisp this is a really good drink. ‘A grand slooter fer yer drooth’ (A good drink for your thirst.)
