3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A deep golden colour with a nice white top. Taste of malt and hops, with fruits and a little bit of earthy bitterness to counter it being too sweet. Really enjoyed this one!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bitter is and of it’s own style, it’s not a hoppy beer, and I think I came to associate one with the other. Back to the bitter though. This pours well, looks great. Has the unmistakable English bitter aroma, and the bitterness is of the style, which lacks real body and depth. As a cold drink though this is pleasant enough with a nice amount of sweetness, not sure I could carry a session on it though.

mine poured golden with a decent frothy head which stayed a while, taste is a fine malty hoppy citrus mix, leading to a quite dry semi-bitter finish

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle: This one pours a clear, light amber color. There was almost no head on it and minimal lacing. the nose is OK. Malts, orange and spices. It has an interesting taste. Malts are well balanced with the hops, and just somewhat bitter. A slight orange flavor with some faint spices. Not bad.
