1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle at Berliner Bierfestival. Clear, pale golden pour, with a white head. Weak nose, mostly grain and hay, but there’s something alcohol-like there as well. Weak flavor as well, with fruits and some hops, leading to a finish with some hops and bitterness. Thin to medium body. Boring and quaffable. (070804)

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can, drunk in the train from The Hague to Hengelo. Bought in Wijn en Bierboetiek, The Hague. Metallic and grainy. Thin. Hints of orange. There is some distant bitterness, probably not really from Pride of Ringwood hops, but a more nasty bitterness not taken from hops. Nutty. Cardboard. Not good.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
You know your evening’s been a bit of a disappointment when this is the best thing you’ve sampled. Thinnish and headless, but some surprisingly OK smoky malt and a faintly bready aftertaste. Even a vaguely woody sourness/dryness. The hops have not been completely destroyed. Can this really be XXXX?
