Bottle. pale orange colour with a slim cream head. Aroma of piney hops, some grass. Nice hoppy taste, with just a hint of the pasteurised nature coming through. Hoppy finish. Quite lively mouthfeel. Good.

500ml bottle from Sainsbury. Brakspear yeasty aroma, with some hop and some toffee malt. Itís clearly a Brakspear beer, that yeast aroma is very distinctive. Some hop sting on the end. Fine.

I didnít care for this beer the first time I had it. However, I tried it again last night and found it perfectly quaffable. Itís nothing to write home about, but despite being overly carbonated it has a balanced flavour and isnít in any way unpleasant.

Bottled. A nice orange gold coloured beer. The aroma is piney hops with a bit of grass. Nice hoppy flavours. A suprising hop bite seeing itís F&G. No nasty pasteurized notes. Nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Sainsburys. Nose of fruit, spices and malt. Pours a carrot colour beer with a small disappearing head. Taste is sweet, malty, hoppy and mineral through the nose. Leaves a lingering bitterness which is pleasant. A good session beer.

A Mes rate (Actually an Elena rate): 50cl bottle from Shamansburys.
Looks like beer. Very very see through. Like condesed piss. Like first thing in the morning when you are away on holiday and you had too much to drink the night before. Slightly chemical, a wee bit like puke in the morning after too much cheap vodka. I could manage a pint but no more. I wouldnít recomment this one, itís not that nice. Quite Basildonian.
Mes: Erm... I have to pretty much agree with Elena.
