Bottle. Golden and clear.Lovely slightly hoppy flavour with plenty of body for its strength. I am no royalist but that didn’t stop me from enjoying this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown 500ml bottle, best before 16 Mar 2012, drank and reviewed on 17 Aug 2011. Poured into an Abbot Ale tankard.
The beer had a slight chill haze to it, most likely my fault for cooling it for too long. The colour was a dirty light amber, an off-white head sitting on top.
The smell was of sweet peas and toffee, so a floral molasses type of thing.
The taste was initially had a malty sweetness, but once you swill it around in the mouth a bit you can feel the hop bitterness kicking in.
It’s OK, I’ll not be rushing out to buy crates of it, but it is the best ’Royal Wedding’ beer that I’ve had (for William and Kate anyway).

Bottle from my local supermarket. Fizzy gold with a lively off white head. Floral and fruity aroma, quite sweet, fruity hop finish. Didn’t really do it for me.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 500ml, a gift. Hazed gold with slight head. Fruity, slightly cidery, apple like flavour on a thinnish malt. Some lateish bite and a leafy, dry hop. Not sure that this will lay up too well.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. An amber beer which pours with no head. A bit sweet and vomit like in the nose. Sulphur and sweat in the mouth. A bitter finish with sugary notes earlier. A decent body but just not very tasty.

500ml bottle reduced at Morrisons. Very nice, drinkable golden bitter. Pale malt, sweet, slightly sticky, some toffee notes. Good range of hops notes swirling around - citric notes. Orange, peach, and tangy marmalade. Lively, fresh, and quite moreish. This is the sort of beer I enjoy. I could go back and get some more bottles of this, Lovely stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Light brownish beer with a light head. The aroma is very well hopped, roasted and toffee, and the flavour is quite intensly bitter and roasted with a malty finish. Overall a reasonable strong bitter.
