it has a lot of foam...i guess that’s the appeal. there’s not much taste here, and it seems pointless unless you want frothy

2.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Aroma: Medium-light toffee, Light earthy, berries.
Appearance: Brilliant gold body. Medium, rocky off-white head. Brilliant retention.
Flavour: Light honey, light bitterness, light berries from the hops. Finishes medium-dry with carbonic aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Watery, but at the same time medium body. Low carbonation, buy still leaves a carbonic aftertaste.. The widget does not add the expected creaminess.
Overall: I have heard about this beer for so long, and it is a disappointment. The bitterness is very low, which is one of the most importance features of the beer.
440 ml can, poured.

Bottleshare at Leighton’s Stratoflat. Can from Dan the Man. Clear gold beer, thin pale cream colour head. Palate is thin and mildly dry. Very modest carbonation, especially from a can. Thin pale malts, some paper. Trace of creamy sweetness. Esters and a whisper of something fruity. Light semi dry finish. Macro nonsense.

Bottle shared at Leightons place. Thanks? To Daniel for this one. Light golden orange coloured pour with a fine white head. Aroma is sweet nutty malts, diacetyl, light English hops. Flavour is composed of watery grains, light toffee, nutty, light grains. Palate is watery, thin, low carbonation. Dog shit.
