3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Cloudy orange appearance. Slightly acidic and lacking in body and flavour. Bit of a disappointment as I expected far better.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines. Flat looking. Thought it was a lager, right up until the cloudy wheaty bit dribbled out at the end of the pour. Poor condition generally. Milky quality. Nutty breakfast cereal. Cream. Curious, but OK.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Cornelius. Hazy bronze body with a thin white head. Lively carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of metal, bananas, bubblegum and white pepper. Flavour of blood, chalky wheat and green apple. Thin body with a watery texture. Fizzy. Too metallic and thin for my liking.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle 0,5l. Somewhat fruity, little bit sour, without bitterness. Insipid, not interesting flavor. I was expecting more.

500 ml bottle. BB 21/10/14. (Spar) Prague, Czech Republic.
Hazy bright yellow golden colour with a small white head.
Sweet toffee, mild yeast, mild wheat and mild caramel malt in the aroma. Not bad. The flavour is sweet caramel, yeasty bitterness, mild hops, wheat and mild toffee. Nice. Tasty. A bit thin.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cheers Mat, shared with 5 others at the Midland meet on 23rd Aug 2014. Pours a hazy Hefeweizen style yellowy orange with the usual white head. Sour banana esters and taste (can you have a sour banana?), almost your typical Hefeweizen apart from the lack of vanilla and that sourness I mentioned earlier: strange.
