3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden with a medium head and comes in a clear bottle. Bitterness dominates but nothing else really going for it. Fairly mediocre.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle - 500 ml) The final of the four pack my mom brought me from Wales. Clear golden color with a thin white head. Aroma is light and bitter with some sweetness, but mostly dry grass and hops. Flavor begins bitter and hoppy, then moves to a dry and grassy middle and a crisp and bitter finish. Watery and a little lacking in flavor.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, Morrisons, Carlisle. Pale gold with a clean white head. Very citrusy, hopy aroma in the pour. Dry taste, but a good mouthswill brings in some cherry and aniseed, which is probably where I got a hint of cough syrup from. Doesn’t have a lot of body, but a lingering apple-like aftertaste on the tongue and throat. About halfway through and with a bit less chill, I detected a touch of burnt sugar in the taste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled A golden coloured headless beer. The aroma is slightly perfumed with some sticky marmalady hops. Initially nicely hoppy in the mouth with orange and grapefruit. Tapers off to a bit of sticky malt. Pretty decent, certainly beat expectations.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Sainsburys. Golden with a decent, but short-lived, white head. Sweet caramel (boiled sweet) aroma, with some floral hops playing second fiddle. Similar sweet malts in the flavour, with some citrus hops and a long dry finish. Good.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A good looking brew, lacks a bit in body but has a fair bit of hop character. A good, if just above average, beer. Morrisons, somewhere in Newcastle, near the University of Northumbria!
