2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle from ales by mail. BB May 2015. Slight white head which cleared in seconds. Poured a clear golden orange colour. Aroma is hops, tropical fruit and caramel. Taste is a bit weak and watery with a dry, slightly spicy finish on the palate. Lacks on flavour. Wasn't enjoyable to be honest.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Beer is clearly filtered. Low head. Aroma is not really anything to write home about. Low amounts of american hops hides behind the bready malt. Kinda boring flavor as well with some slight spicyness. A good beer, but nothing amazing.
Best before 23/08-15.

Light golden color, white head. Citrus nose, light tropical fruit, hints of malt and grass. Grapefruit and resin taste, caramel, hint of salt and grass, light bitterness. Light body, soft carbonation. Quite good considering the low abv.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at the Fisherman’s Cottage, Reading. Pale gold with a thin white head. Rather thin, almost watery mouthfeel. The taste, too, is a little insipid at first, but eventually gets its act together to present a pleasant, if mild, lemon and grass flavour. The crisp, clean, refreshing finish makes up for a lot, but really it’s a little disappointing overall.
