3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (500ml). Via trade with jerc - thanks, Jer!. Slightly hazy light gold with a tinge of amber, large frothy white head. Nice cereal grain aroma, no skunk, doesn’t seem stale, soft and funky/grassy hops, hint of slightly tart fruit. Very mild flavour, touch of bottle, nice pungent grassy hop finish, still a bit of flax/grain character to it. Average, slick body, a bit astringent, slight bitter aftertaste. Not bad for the style, good hop character.

"Golden colour, clean full malt flavour and crisp hop aftertaste".
Aroma slightly smelly socks. Taste citrus, refreshing but also dry and bit off.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle shared at home. Pours hazy, cloudy even, yellow with a thin white head. Biscuit and flowery aromas, honey. Tastes boozier than many beers stronger than this. Light body and thin texture. no noticeable hop bitterness. OK, but a bit boring.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: Honey and unripe tropical fruit notes. Subtle hint of sauvignon blanc.
Appearance: Clear golden body with a huge white head that slowly fades. Light carbonation. Nice sticky lacing.
Taste: The fruity flavours are verging on sour. Quite tangy. Noticeable boozy taste for its 6% ABV.
Palate: Medium body with a dry, mouth-puckering mouthfeel. Gentle carbonation fizz.
Overall: Average at best. No uniqueness of flavour. In a word: dull.
