2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, 750ml from Sainsbury’s. Cloudy orange lemon with quickly dissapating head. Quite harsh flavours to this, a pronounced lemon with some banana, but little else. Lasts forever in this size due to increasing lack of interest. OK but never again.

a sim rate:
At first I thought it was ok. But the more I drink, the more it tastes like soapy water. The head dissipated quickly. And I think maybe someone lost some plastic in there somewhere too. Yup. Definitely plastic. It would be nice with a citric aftertaste to top it off, but no such luck.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
75cl bottle, 1.70€, 4.5°. Appears quite dark for the style, tend to classic golden color. Slightly hazed ("natural troubling agent"?), white head. Aroma has strange spicey to medicinal notes, somewhat artificial. Taste is flat. Not good, not a witbier.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Sainsburys. Green hued hazy yellow, with a frothy white top. Aroma - a bit lagery, quite sweet and fatty. Oooh not brilliant.... Buttery to start (not good) then dropping off into a dry, boring slaty malt. A colossal let down. I could only manage a few gulps, which is doubly annoying given that you have to buy Ch’ti products in 750ml bottles, grrrr.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured a light pale yellow gold, some white bubbles but they disappeared quickly, looks like lots of forced carbonation?
light scent of a pale ale, I have had some pale ales that had more of a scent, little taste for a pale ale to, disappointing, light citrus lemon taste, a pinch of wheat in the mouth, not much to write home about here, thin mouth feel, could be a thirst quincher on a hot day but I can find other beers that taste better then this to mow my lawn with, this was like drinking a soda only less.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours hazy yellowish with moderate white head. Weird tequila-like (?!) aroma. Flavor is grainy with an unpleasant dusty taste. Also lightly sour citrus flavors. A bad bottle?

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy light yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is notes of apple, plastic, detergent. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Cripes, man. After this and the Blonde, I’m starting to regret snapping up one bottle each of the five main Ch’Ti beers (at $10 each). Smells bad, bland in the mouth, I just dunno what good I can say...well, it looks right for the style, at least.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Buttery, lemon and cheese in the aroma. Pale straw colour with lasting white head. Papery, cardboard lemon cheese. Kind of musty. Faitly still feeling despite high carbonation. Bottle (sampled at Mondial 2004).
