bottle from oddbins. so that’s what’s become of the cairnpapple. fairly light, lots of biscuit, malt, grapefruit. there’s nothing not to like here, clearly i’ve become spoiled by choice that I can find this so pedestrian.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle Aldi. Surprisingly potent aroma for a 4.1% beer and a surprisingly strong flavour. Sweet and bitter at the same time. Piny bitterness mixed with Scottish tablet. Decent beer, full flavoured for the ABV.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from Aldi supermarket, drank at home:
I had initially feared it was going to be far to sweet when I opened the bottle but it turned out to be quite an enjoyable & well balanced, going down easily. Yes, the sweetness could have been toned down just a little but it didn’t manage to spoil the beer for me thankfully.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Aldi. Pours a deep gold. No real head after pouring. Not enough in the aroma. Grassy caramel. Very light lemon. Good carbonation. Decent mouthfeel. Semi-sweet in taste. Little citrus bite. Quite dry on the finish. Needs more flavour from the hops. Ok...ish.

Looks great with s super.durable.and very creamy white head. Bright amber with excellent clarity.
