2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2007 Pours very well, which i always like and generally means goodness. Aroma is some seriouss hops, grassy and floural. Taste is also very hoppy with a very dry grassy finish. A good ale alround however maybe a bit to hoppy for me.RERATE: Bon Accord. This has gone down hill also. Buttery and honey malts, noteable citrus and grassy.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask Conditioned at The Brewery Tap, Peterborough, Cambs. Pale Gold with light head. The first thing was a really sulphery nose, quite pungent. This is thin bodied with an acidic citricity. Thinnish with low flavour. Ok but a bit too understated.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2006 Cask. Cloudy gold with a small white head. Aromas are lemon sherbert and sulphur. Flavours are soft and buttery malts with some light citrus notes. Quite addictive.

Hand pull at Derby Beer Festival. Clear gold body, hint of creamy head. Dripping with watery fruit, nibble of hops, another enjoyable Atlas offering.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hand pulled at the Anchor, Birmingham. Very tasty beer. Extremely fruity, with a strong tasting finish, which starts to go a little awry. Lost a little something as I got through the pint, and the flavours seemed less cohesive. Juicy mouthfeel on this pale ale.
