2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A mid copper amber coloured beer with a weak white head. A strong hoppy aroma, grassy and citrusy, plus a hint of cereal wheat and malt. Dry mouthfeel. That taste starts off hoppy, citrusy and floral, then a light smooth, malty flavour. The finish is hoppy, but does lack body.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at the chriso Pre-GBBF Shindig 2013 - London. Pours clear amber with a slight, white foam head. Basic dry bread and dry caramel in the aroma. Light sweet flavor with simplistic, dried bready malts and lightly bitter, toasted leaves. Light in body with fine carbonation. Bland finish with more basic, dry bread and faint leafy bitterness. Meh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from M&S Reading. Amber with a moderate off-white head. Grapefruit and lemon hops are evident up front but are never overpowering. Thereís still a surprising amount of maltiness coming through too. Yes, the mouthfeel is a little thin (although Iíve had some at twice the abv that have felt thinner), but somehow that works with the other elements of the beer (in particular the crisp bitterness in the finish) to make it feel refreshing rather than weak. I guess anyone can sling a load of hops and make a low abv beer strongly flavoured. However to make it tasty and yet still retain a great balance is much more tricky- yet Adnams have achieved it here. In short I loved this beer; Iíd happily have it again. Wish more pubs would stock tasty low ABV beers like this on cask tor summer afternoons and long evening sessions. Great stuff.

Bottle from Morrisons. Reduced to £1 per bottle. Remarkably tasty for its low abv. Malty in appearance and aroma but pleasantly hoppy in the mouth with a nice touch of bitterness on the swallow. A very agreeable bitter.

Bottle from everyoneís favourite nuthouse supermarket, Morrisons at Catcliffe, Sheffield. Itís 3:30 in the morning. Iíve just done a 9 hour shift that felt like 12. Iím not supposed to be having a beer, but thatís ok, because this is quite a lot like not having a beer. Itís plenty tasty, mind you, in an Adnams kind of way. And circumstances dictate that Iím really quite liking it...
