2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Foggy pale yellow with a bubbly head. Banana/ethylene aroma. Banana and vanilla flavour, rather unremarkable and not that pleasant. A bit crude really.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gold colour. Some malty cereal in the aroma. Short of flavour. What there is, again, is malty, but dull. Although the malt is quite dry, there is precious little in the way of hop presence. Either those organic NZ hops (Hallertau?) don’t pack much punch or they’ve stinted on quantity. Bland, but inoffensive - not much va va voom here. Hardly "exciting" as claimed in the blurb. Mind you, it was very close to the best before date. 500ml bottle (not bottle conditioned) from beersofeurope.co.uk. BBE 30 June 2004.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Malt and hops in an alcoholic drink that quenches the thirst. What? You want flavour, character and something interesting as well? No chance.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Gold with good head and condition. Sweet malt in the nose, fruit and malt in the mouth but very little aftertaste.
