3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
lots and lots of carbonation, perhaps the only thing it has going for it to be labelled as a pilsner. the blended malt (british ale, continental, lager, german) not bad, certainly not a simple beer. buttery and thick. a bit citrus, too.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, Students’ Association, St Andrews. Nose is lemony malt with seaweed. Mouth has plenty of carbonation and has bunches of lagery maltiness, some sweet seaweed and salty balance. Woody tones, but quite refreshing towards the end. Would be gulpable if it weren’t for some bite of hoppiness at the back of the throat.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from the cave. Aroma is minimal hints of lemon over the pale malts. Taste is lager malts, hints of honey sweetness but the hops are no use and too rawly grassy.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clean and zesty flavour perfectly balanced with a firm hoppy nose. Wonderfully refreshing beer with an alcohol content that lets you keep your head even when quenching a serious thirst.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2007 Bottled. Pours with a slight golden haze and impressively lacy suds. Sweet, vanilla-accented nose. Chewily piney and hop-laden for the ABV. A hint of vanilla maltiness not unlike Innis and Gunn, but otherwise very coniferous. Takes some getting used to, but an admirable attempt at the style with a full-flavoured malt-hop balance. Despite the blurb, better as it warms than at fridge temperature. Just not too keen on those grainy, malt whiskeyish flavours. A little too like drinking freshly polished furniture for my liking.
