2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: APR 2, 2015 330ml bottle from Morrisons.
Small bubbly off white head disappears quickly, no lacing. Nose is very sweet orange marmalade. Flavour is orange, touch of toffee, some grassy bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is good, light carbonation, nice swell on the tongue, a little bit of bite. The orange overpowers but I guess that's what the intention was.
Revised after finishing the bottle. Orange flavour becomes distinctly artificial over time and ends up quite unpleasant. Not one to drink again.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet and tangy orangeade, nothing else. Taste of orange marmalade, Cointreau, artificial candied orange flavouring, some pepper and sugar. Light bodied, moderate carbonation and oily texture. A dry, herbal orange finish. Didn’t find this enjoyable, unbalanced and not a nice aftertaste. Got used to it more I drank though.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2015 330ml bottle from Morrisons, Preston. 99p sell-off-tastic! A good six weeks away from its "best before" date, mind you. I used to think 6.2 was kind if a magic number for beer... Most of the beers I?d had, or made at that strength were pretty good, if not excellent. Nice to meet one that disproves the rule. I think even Batemans have made beers that are more orange and barley than this one. It?s sweet as, but lacks anything orangey other than a cheap cordial note. It?s thin, pours clear dark amber, no head. Pishest of the pish beers I?ve bought from a supermarket today. 99p though, extra point for the value.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Nose: orangeade, some solvent, nothing else. no foam, no lacing. taste - blidfolded I would never say this is a beer. harsh oranges to start with, bitter (and not in a good way), misbalanced, alcoholic. aftertaste horrendous. Damn, i can drink vodka with no chaser, but had to do it with this beer!
third beer from this Batemans ’special’ series I was forced to drink and i got my lesson - never again.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle that Jim shared - cheers. Orange in coloue with a white head. Smells of cheap orangeade and chlorine. Tastes of cheap orangeade and washing up liquid. Light beery bitterness behind fails to improve things. This is a terrible beer - all 3 people present found it completely undrinkable. And possibly poisonous.
