3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale amber colour, with a big persistent and creamy head. Fruity aroma (plum and apricot). The flavour is well balanced, quite fruity (pineapple, apple and plum), with a light hoppy finish. Refreshing.

The aroma took me back to Leopard Lager in the late 80s. I got all nostalgic for my innocent years, but the taste was a little odd, making my tongue feel like I’d licked a 9 volt battery.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of cereal malts, bread, some caramel, subtle fruit and slight spicy hops. Taste of cereal malts, some caramel, subtle fruits, a little mineral and slight spicy, grassy hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, slightly astrigent, grassy hop bitterness in the finish. Started off ok like a decent bitter but turned very thin, tasteless and astrigent. Quite disappointed because I used to like this on cask.

Just had a Neame Spitfire before this. This is closer to a lager, less sweet. Grassy and bready. Only faint late sweetness. It’s easy to drink but I would probably take a decent lager over this, and there are certainly better ESBs.
