Thanks Jercraigs for sharing another beer:) This was a very pale yellow with a faint nose and flavours of fruit. Pretty average stuff.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is slightly fruity, and reminiscent of their Northumberland Ale making me wonder if it is the same yeast. This is a plus for me since I am a fan of the Northumberland. Relatively bland flavour profile, with the fruity notes the dominant flavour with a touch of malt. Palate is light but appropriate. Meh... accomplishes what it set out to do nicely.

Clear gold w/ slight amber hue. White head. Light malt aroma w/ some notes faint but fresh hops cutting through. Light feel. Sweet, crisp flavour w/ a light to moderate bitterness. Unfortunately it also had that Church Key canned mushroom house character.
