4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
500ml bottle. Best Before 24.09.2015. Slightly opaque pale gold colour with a towering, frothy, ice cream like head which refused to reduce, wonderful lacing. Assertive aroma pine forest, grapefruit, passionfruit with a malt undertone. Beautiful balance of medium sweetness and a shade more bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth texture, lively carbonation and a long bitter resin finish. Very enjoyable but left me feeling very gassy. 8.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Pulkovsky Universam , St Petetsburg. Lovely beer. Aroma of hops, yeast and citrus. Medium carbonation, citrus, wood notes, very bitter hoppy finish. Packed with flavour for such a low ABV. A lovely cross between an English bitter and an American Pale Ale. Would make a great summer session beer.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a opaque light golden with a biggish white head. Has a lovely floral nose with some zesty citrus fruit and honeyed notes. Flavour wise, it’s light and fruity with lots of sweet and sour citrus (mandarin, lemon, grapefruit) with sweet bready and grassy malt in the background, which is followed by a very assertive, dry, slightly salty hop bitterness. Has a medium body and lively carbonation. For something 4.2%, this is a really heavy hitter. The bitterness may be too much for some but if you’re a hop head, you should be well satisfied. A very nice golden ale indeed.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber bottle. Pours a hazy reddish amber with a frothy, thick white head. Moderate carbonation. Sweet, fruity aroma. Taste is hoppy, some grass, warming to a resin/citrus like bitterness. Medium mouthfeel. Finish is grassy bitterness, with some fruity sweet tones. Very interesting, not like any other golden/blonde ale I’ve ever had. I like it, but not sure it’s classed correctly... more like a hoppy extra special bitter, or an English IPA.
