look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

330ml can conditioned with live yeast; unfined, unfiltered & unpasteurised.
L: Cloudy, burnt orange with a thin, creamy, off-white head.
S: Tea leaves and a hint of orange oil.
T: Fruit up-front then stewed tea. Moderate bitterness and a very dry finish.
F: Smooth, creamy mouthfeel, no carbonation. Mouth-puckering dryness.
O: This is a hoppy, astringent, English bitter with the traditional malt base dialled back in favour of the hops. Not a traditional bitter, interesting and fun.

Color is a dark orange. Pretty opaque, surprisingly. Fine carbonation, but not a whole lot of head.

Smell is a little bit of cilantro, a little bit of malt. Slight bit of lemon. Not intense at all, which is too bad because what's there is okay.

Taste is general earthy hoppiness. This might be another one where just coming from refigeration doesn't do it any favors. Palatable, but not notable in the grand scheme of things. Maybe tree bark, and I have to strain to get any citrus acidity. Not as bitter as I expected (or hoped).

Medium-fine carbonation with a swish around the mouth, not prickly, though. Medium weight. Aftertaste is merely a reduced version of the taste which was already a bit light.

Hazy amber colour. Hints of cereal and caramel malt nose, a little citus hop but nm else. Clean and effervescent but nm of a flavour profile. Malt upfront, straw and a drier hoppy finish. Nm body. Clean and sessionable.

A 330ml can with a BB of Jan 2018. ABV is stated as 4.3%. Acquired a little while back from a webshop. The label calls it an untraditional best bitter with extra flavour.

A: Poured into a tulip. Can conditioned. A deep, hazy marmalade-orange hue with plentiful floating sediment and low carbonation. Yields a decent head of creamy white foam that lasts for a minute or two before subsiding to a patchy surface layer. Slight lacing.

S: Aroma of caramel malt with hints of grain, subtle barley sugar, ale yeast, leafy hops, mild hay, earthiness and a faint nutty quality. Nicely balanced.

T: Tastes of caramel malt with notes of mild grain, ale yeast, earthiness, leafy hops and a hint of grass/hay. Quite dry, followed by a restrained bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with soft carbonation and good body. Aftertaste of bitter leafy hops, caramel malt and earthy yeast.

O: A nice brew with a classic character. Looks alright, though the carbonation is a bit lacking. Aroma and flavour are pleasant and balanced, with malt, yeast and hops in proportion. Body is OK; would benefit from being a tad livelier. Goes down readily enough - worth sampling.

330ml can served in a nonic. BB Mar17 indicated on the can. Pours a hazy burnt orange with a rocky, half inch, bright white head that eventually settles into a consistent 1/8th inch cap. Spots and swaths of lacing were present during the tasting. Nose is fairly subdued - light biscuit notes, a trace of sweetness and a kiss of citrus. Taste express more of the light biscuity quality detected in the nose, as well as slight earthy character. Mouthfeel is light in body with a pleasant carbonation - clean and just shy of crisp. Overall, not a whole lot going on, but pretty drinkable nonetheless.
