2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Courtesy of Fonefan. It’s a slightly hazy, golden beer with a creamy head. The aroma has a light sweetness and notes of fruit. The same goes for the flavour, where I also find caramel and malt. It’s smooth and pleasant, and it’s quite charming even if it’s rather thin-bodied.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled@Fonefan. Golden colour, not much head. Aroma is hops, diacetyl and some mild earthyness. Flavour is quite much the same with some mild sweet hayish notes. Wellbalanced, but not very exciting.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
I liked the look of this, the thick glass of the bottle and the label with the open beach, "beauty in a bottle" it says in the corner, it was the last bottle on the shelf which says to me "this has nearly sold out, it MUST be good" Well that’ll teach me, this is shit! It would have been a crackin’ colour if it wasn’t for the hazy proteins making it almost opaque. the head is a few islands of white bubbles floating aimlessly around the middle of the glass. the nose is unpleasant, sour even. The palate is medium which I’m guessing would be typical, however there is an astringent edge which is the final straw for me...( pours the remaining 3/4 pint down the sink!) Ok! this could’ve been a dodgy bottle, maybe thats why it was the only one left! I may try it again, I’ll see how I feel, this was bought in a wine shop in North Berwick, cant remember the exact price but it wasn’t kicking the arse off £3.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled at RBESG 2007. A golden beer with just a bit of sediment floating around under a lazing orange head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of straw, and so is the flavor, though also with a note of citrus.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear light golden, tiny, diminishing white head. The peppery yeast character initially surprises positively, but clearly it is soured, herbal and sulfury, just like their 80 /-. Pretty ruined in mouth, bready and watery and in fact not unlike dish water. Poor.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden colour, big head. Good fruity with nice hoppiness and spicy yeastiness. Full-ish mouthfeel at this abv-level, with spicy yeast yet low on the flavour profile with low bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, at RBESG 2007 in Glasgow, Grand Tasting. Golden coloured beer, large head. Pleasant hoppy and yeasty aroma, slightly oaky, nearly a vinous character. The flavour has the same characteristics as the aroma, but is less vinous.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2007 Bottled at RBESG ’07. Deep golden, very lively. Lemony and buttery. Quite dry and refreshing with good malt structure and short salty finish.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, RBESG Grand Tasting 07. From the never ending eruption that was the bottle of this. Hazy blonde, thin white head. Nose is hazy and warm maltiness. Some warm, bad water infection nose. Mouth is watery malt, some dry rot, not much aftertaste, think this could have gone bad?
