3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Up front bitter hop flavour laced with citrus flavour around the side. Slightly, dry middle that is pleasent but feels like it should be bigger, stonger or longer on the palate.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pleasant but not outstanding pale ale.The head dissapeared quickly and there was very little carbonisation.Citrus undertones and a fruity bitterness makes for a pleasant drink.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light citrusy hoppy aroma. Golden hue with a good foamy white head. Malty with citrus hints and a long refreshing bitter dry finish. A classic English pale ale. Well worthy of its "finest" label. This beer is actually exclusive to Tesco selected from the beers at the Tesco beer challenge.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Frothy head that disappears very quickly. The aroma is typical English ale bitterness, and the flavour is generally bitter with a tinge of fruit. Overall a bog standard ale, poor to average.
