21st November 2013
Hazy amber beer with a tidy off white head. Palate is smooth and a little soft. Light fine carbonation. Light sweet malt and sweet marmalade hops. Lactose. Light finish. Much like the Pale Ale this is quite drinkable but a bit sweet for the style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from ?Jacks?, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon. Consumed at home Monday 26th August 2013 Pours hazy orangey/gold, nice white head atop. Feels soft in mouth but the tongue is carressed by a fruity hoppiness which is sweet, pleasantly bitter with some squidgy sweet lemon. Really nice beer and a surprise for me as for some reason I opened it up and never expected it to be so good. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

Bottled 20/07/13. An amber to ginger coloured beer with a little white head. Good citrus hoppiness. Some malty sweetness and a bit of glue late on. Tropical fruit hoppy notes. A nice body and good length. A very decent beer where it’s just the glue which lets it down.
