2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber beer with a thin head. A mild aroma with a citric edge to it. The flavour is also not especially strong though thatís probably to be expected. Citrusy and slightly hoppy as well, itís not anything special but itís quite pleasant for a fairly low-alcohol beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep amber with a fine though fast-settling head and aromas of dry hops and fresh malt. Crisp and hoppy, the body is initially a bit watery, like an alcohol-free, the excessive gassiness doesnít help either. As it progresses some biscuity malt emerges, itís mostly bitter-forward though.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle) Clear dark copper / amber with short-lived slight off white head. Pleasant aroma of citrusy hops. Light body, rather fizzy. Taste is good, but a little thin. There is a pleasant caramel malt at the start and then a fruity tang comes in to be replaced with a decent amount of hoppy bitterness in the finish. Overall, for a lower alcohol beer this is excellent, however on the face of it it is a little thin.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml Bottle bought for me by my son-in-law (knowing Iíd never buy such a beer): BBD 31 Mar 2014, poured into an íOld Speckled Hení badged vase shaped pint glass on 19 Aug 2013.
Just had a heavy Chinese take-away and need something light: this was in the beer cooler.
Looks fine: a good solid copper/amber body with a thin white head, the beer appeared bright and clean.
Pleasant biscuity malt aroma with a mild floral feel.
The taste is also on the malt biscuit side of things and it is only mid-mouthful that the alcohol content lets the brew down and you realise how watery the actual beer is.
It is fine for my needs at the moment: after that Chinky: however Iíd be less impressed if Iíd been served it in a pub or at a mates house.
