3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. A pleasant and well behaved ale with a delightful and delicate fruit nose. There are no rough edges to this, so it comes over as slightly bland, but it is quite gulpable and refreshing.

Clear yellow color, short creamy head. Aroma is quite sour, floral i guess. Sour and bitter taste, refreshing palate, though slightly bitter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark bitter with a whispy head, and a summer sweet lightly hopped aroma. A floral sweet and caramel flavour with a flour texture finish. A pleasant enough summer beer.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Wychwood-eque sterile aroma, copper hue with a small rapidly disipating head, faintly hoppy but very sterile and weak, this is not unpleasant and is even quite refreshing on a warm summer's day, however it is not interesting or challenging on the palate whatsoever

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. 4.2% abv. Amber gold, thin head and moderate condition. Honey sweet, vanilla and citrus notes in the nose, slightly greasy in the mouth (like youve been eating fish and chips on Skeggy beach), quite fruity but with a harsh edge and a clingy aftertaste with a brief suggestion of hops. Might be better drunk ice cold.
The commercial decription for this beer lists East Angolian barley. Its good to see unusual malts being imported from West African states. Oh, wait, its just a typo. East Anglian barley.
