2.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle, BB Jan 2016. Totally clear orange amber, sparkling, small foamy white head and some lacing. Aroma is mainly sweaty socks, wet dog, drying laundry. Body is medium to light, pretty smooth, very low carbonation. Taste is wotsits up front, but this dies down quickly, thin with light bready malt, some tangy hop in the finish, right at the back of the mouth. Drying. The flavour isn’t that bad. Better than expected.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, shared with my father in law. Slightly hazy orange, light gold head that leaves delicate lace early on. Light caramel, grains, tea-like tannins, soft mouthfeel, low bitterness. Easy drinking but nothing special.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Marston’s Classic Ales gift pack at LCBO. Light copper-gold body with a medium sized head that disappears quickly. Mild aroma of light caramel, bit of nut hull, quick hint of cut grass, smidgen of orange oil. Simple flavour of caramel malt, orange blossom hops, and a slight metallic tinge in the finish. Nothing really wrong with it, just rather boring.

Run of the mill, malty taste. Bit unbalanced. Prefer Marston’s epa if I want weak session ale
