3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle from Morrisons. A deep amber pour with a thick cream head; the aroma is sweet, floral and grainy - reminding me of a Baviarian kellerbier - but also has an earthy quality - I don’t know what a German farmyard smells like, but I guess this might be a good representation! In the mouth it’s malty and sweet and surprisingly full with some soft caramel in the background; there’s some quite spicy bitterness and a rather dry spritzy finish. This is surprisingly good for 2.7%ABV - I’d willingly follow it up with another.

500ml bottle from M&S (as Southwold).
Thin off white head, very thin lacing, clear amber body. Good nose of toffee and caramel, sprightly hops. Flavour is lightly floral, grassy, caramel finish, a bit watery. Mouthfeel is thin, medium carbonation. A bit thin overall but a decent low abv option.

Bottled, 500ml, as Southwold 2.7%, from Marks & Spencer in Banbury. Brown with white head. Light, sweetish beer with a hint of caramel, some citrus notes, cleanish and reasonably bitter. It’s ok.

Deep amber pour. The nose is lightly spicy/woody and fairly malty. Has a decent palate and a bit of soft fruit. Lightly crackery with a bit of rye-like character along with it. Decent brew. Quite light.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale brown with thin lacy head. Light caramel malt in the aroma. Flavour is malty with a dry, hoppy finish. Lacks a bit of body but it’s a good ’Low Alcohol’ beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Reddish amber beer with a strong frothy off white head. The aroma is yeasty and toffee hopped, and the flavour is very bitter with yeasty and toffee hoppedness. Overall a nice bitter, not bad for 2.7% alc.

Low in alcohol and you can certainly taste it. Still, a nice easy option to have if you need to go easy.

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.
