3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It starts with an amber pour, and a good head that slowly diminishes. The aroma is a thin one, just a hint of bitterness and astringincy. Has a citrus, slightly bitter taste, with a thin palate. This is a beer that exceeded my expectations, and has the hints of a great session ale.

A dark, amber coloured beer with a thick white head. A soapy hop aroma, citrusy with a malty undertone. A dry, hoppy taste, floral, slightly grassy and citrusy. There is a malty flavour in the background. The finish is dry. (Bottle - purchased from Tesco, Fakenham, Norfolk, at a reduced price of 95p. a bottle).

This has caught me by surprise, a nut brown lager with a lingering hoppy taste characteristic of an English ale.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I’ve got to say, this is a tastey beer. Seeing it anywhere and everywhere I went in NYC I was half expecting it to be weak and watered down ... what a plesent suprise!
Had a nice lagar-esque flavor but with both malts and hops. Which is wierd becaus eI often think of lager as beeing rather tasteless. Hops are what make this beer good.

This one takes a little getting used to. Nice fizzy head and some decent hoppiness. Solid 3.

Bottle. Clear yellow colour and a sparkling look. Initial appearance of head was medium. Aroma was hop flowery and spicy, yeast as the predominant notes. Favour was light bitter and dry. Light bodied with a light bitter hoppy finish.
