2.92/5  rDev -10.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.5

A 250ml bottle with a best before date of 23rd January 2019. Poured into a Lindemans flute glass.

Appearance: A clear copper colour with a one finger white head that dissipates quickly but settles to a thin but replenishing layer. No lacing.

Aroma: Sweet-ish plum, apple juice, brown sugar and apple cider vinegar.

Taste: Sweet sweet apple, apple juice, brown sugar and maybe some herbal notes.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with light carbonation.

Overall: This was overly sweet for me, even though it was easy to drink.

Poured to an oversized wine glass.

A: The body is coppery, having orange and darker hues. The head, when poured, was one finger thick; after a while, it's minimal, existing just in the sides of the glass. No lacing.
S: The aroma is very floral, sweet and malty.
T: The taste is very sweet, way to sweet than expected. It's not bad, it just has too much sweetness.
M: The body is medium, bitterness is very low, carbonation is invisible but it's very good.
O: My first Faro and it has a bit overwhelming sweetness but it's cool.

Very clear bronze body and very little head to speak of. Lots of visible bubbles. Smells and tastes an awful lot like apple juice/mass produced cider, sweet and fruity with just the lightest touch of acidity and funk. Not really what I want in a faro; it's just not beery enough. More like a wonky alcopop. That said, it's not unpleasant and quite easy to drink, in a Pimm's cup kind of way. Possible food pairings: goat cheese and caramelised onions, pulled pork, roast duck, chicken and waffles, hummus.

Small bottle received in trade with Phyl21ca

Appearance - Rusty brown colour with an smalle size fizzy/frothy beige head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, apples, raisins, vinegar

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, vinegar and raisins. There is also some bruised apple type flavour and come citric acid.

Overall - An interesting beer, kind of like a green candy apple. Okay to try once, but not something I'd seek out again.

From Platinum. BB 2014.

Appearance - Hazy amber - one finger head turns to film.

Smell - apple juice, lemon, hint of vinegar.

Taste - sweet, apples, minimal back palate sourness.

Mouthfeel - light zesty.

Overall - First of style, and a little too sweet for this palate. Unsure if it would get more complex as 2014 approaches. Leaves me overall unsure. Nice overall flavours for 4% tho...
