Very foamy head atop a golden brew. A pleasant aroma from this beer gives it a freshness. The hoppiness is medium in intensity but the beer is refreshing and light. Very enjoyable.

500ml bottle from Tesco - Hazy pale golden colour, medium white lacing head. Fruity aroma of ripe oranges and lime. Taste is rather on the sweet side, citrus fruit with a feint hint of bananas. Okay, but nowt special.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled 500ml. K-Isolinna. BB 09/2013. Clear golden color, small white head. A bit skunky, salty English hoppy aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Nutty, woody, citrusy English hops in a bit too thin malt base. Standard British macro bitter. Not too bad, and even slightly better than keg version I had recently.
