Notes / Commercial Description:
A unique schizophrenic beer where you'll face off against floral hoppy flavours up front, leading into a dry spicy bitterness on the back. Need something a bit different to wake up your taste buds? It's time to get a FUBAR.

First beer of the 2018 Advent calendar.
A strong start, despite the cloudy and rather unattractive appearance of the beer.
Low carbonation.
Excellent hop flavor but without much of the bitterness. It fits the Pale Ale description just right.
Slightly low in alcohol, and the extra malt (and "malted wheat") does its thing.

330ml bottle - day 1 of the 2018 Craft Beer Advent Calendar. 'Fubar' sounds very Canadian, but this is actually from jolly old Wales.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, medium golden amber colour, with three chubby fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and bubbly off-white head, which leaves some decent layered cirrus cloud form lace around the glass as it very slowly dissipates.

It smells of gritty and grainy pale malt, mild domestic citrus peel, candi sugar, and some leafy, herbal, and musky floral green hop bitters. The taste is grainy and bready caramel malt, blood orange and red grapefruit citrus rind, a hint of earthy yeast, and more leafy, musty, and piney hoppiness.

The carbonation is quite tame in its innocuous frothiness, the body a so-so middleweight, and generally smooth, with a thin airy creaminess arising as things warm up a tad around here. It finishes off-dry, the malt and earthy floral character exhibiting the most lingering pizzazz.

Overall - this comes across as a pleasant enough version of the style, if one pushed through a British filter. Simple, and easy to put back, but I'm hoping that there are stronger and bolder beers yet to come from this annual Yuletide experience.

33cl bottle. Dark golden pour with a white head with decent retention. Smells of green hops, lemon zest and faint tropical fruit. The taste is moderately bitter, but is lacking in character. A good thirst quencher, but nothing spectacular here.

Dark hazy gold with off white film. 3.75
Lean lemon juice and chardonnay nose - NZ hops? 4
Lean plain Goldfish malts, a whack of grapefruit, elderflower and gooseberry hops. 4
Bit of must on the end and canned fruit cocktail linger.
Light, crisp, slight oil. 3.75

Hops don’t hit hard but there’s some interesting aroma that throws shapes like it’s Kiwi even though the web site says American. Splits the difference between APA and English Blonde in strength, and that’s about where it lands for flavor, too. Not the best in TR’s range, but I could spend an evening on this. 4

Pint

A: Pale golden, clear, initial one finger head, kept a lid of film the whole time.

S: Citrus gummi bears, floral, more of an American than English aroma.

T: Fruity, lots of wheat, moderate bitterness, slightly watery.

M: Light body, minimalcarbonation, smooth.

O: Another British take on an American style, others have done it better.
