Hand-pump. Shaker glass. Enjoyed at Homo Sibaris (Barcelona) in a simultaneous world-wide presentation. Pale amber color. White forth creates a close & thin lasting crown. Earthy, intense herbal & black bread aromas as well as hints of orange peel. Voluptuous upfront & ripe apricot flavor. Full body. Moderate carbonation. Oily texture. Ripe apricot & mango are slightly dried by increasing bitterness. Long resinous finish. Easy drinkable & flavorful.

A 660ml bottle with a BB of May 2014. Picked up a little while back from Trembling Madness in York. Described on the label as a sessionable ale brewed with rye and plenty of hops.

Poured into a Duvel tulip. Bottle conditioned. A rich amber hue with faint haze and medium carbonation. Yields a large head of white foam that lasts for a few minutes before reducing to a patchy surface layer. Slight lacing. Aroma of sharp, juicy hops with notes of grapefruit, orange peel, lime/lemon, white grape and melon. This is underpinned by caramel malt, earthy yeast and faint spicy grain. Smells lovely, though I can't say the rye really shines through.

Tastes of intensely fruity hops with a notable undercurrent of rye and a bitter finish. Notes of grapefruit, orange peel, citrus, white grape, mild tropical fruit, faint grass/hay, earthy yeast, subtle rye, grain, caramel malt and stewed hops. Highly attenuated, followed by a powerful bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, dry and tingly, with a hint of spice on the palate. Restrained carbonation and good body for the style. Rather astringent, with an aftertaste of fruity hops, strident bitterness and earthy yeast.

Very tasty - a top notch brew! It looks great, and the aroma and flavour are superb. An avalanche of aromatic hops assault the senses, with the yeast and caramel malt/rye working hard to keep them in check. Good body for the ABV. The only thing I'd note is that the rye is pretty understated - this is more of a hoppy beer than a rye beer. However, it's still delicious. Well worth sampling if you come across it.

Collaboration brew between Moor and Beavertown of London. Poured from a 660ml bottle into a dimpled pint mug.

Pours a dark golden colour with a bit of cloud to it. Decent frothy white head.

Smells fruity and fresh.

Tastes great - fresh, fruity, citrusy, with just the perfect level of distinctively bready rye malts, and perhaps some crisp biscuity ones in there too to finish it off with a crisp, dry finish.

Overall a really enjoyable beer, great level of taste for the abv.
