3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copenhagen 31/1-2016. 50 cl bottle from Meny. Little bird - a wagtail I presume - peeking in light cool blue. Pours clear orange with white head. Dissolves fairly fast leaving only flimsy remnants of foam. Very moderate lacing. Aroma of orange and sharp dry sour lemon. Light carbonation and watery palate. Taste has a little sweetness as from caramel and toffee who is quickly overpowered by fruity tartness and distinct bitterness. Aftertaste is watery with medium bitterness. A bit too watery to be exceptional but a quite fine and refreshing bitter.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle as Alias Lindisfarne Holy Island Bitter, picked up by Isobel (thanks Isobel) from Holy Island (I believe) consumed at home Thursday 11th December 2014. Sadly this was a shocker, insipid, thin, watery beer. A touch of caramel, lacking in bitterness, in fact it is simply a case if where is the bloody flavour. Stick on a touristy Holy Island Bitter label and flog it for £2.90 (or whatever the scandalous price was) robbing gits, shameful! Btw are we sure this is still an alias, my rating seems quite out of kilter for what otherwise looks a pretty decent beer by Allendale and I wouldn’t wish to knock what appears to be a good beer.
