3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is dominated by flowery hops. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of flowery hops, leading to a dry bitter finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled, 500ml from Millets Farms Shop, Frilford, Oxon. Orange gold with white head. As the standard Bluebird is one of my favourite beers I had high hopes for this, but its really been dumbed down for another market, sweet, malty and really quite dull, not a patch on the original.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy pour, with a thin but tight head. Soft orange hue. The nose has a muted hop spice that tends towards wet eart, when cold. Thin entry, but no bumbs in the ride, nice texture and tasty. Dry, crackery malt has some dried arpicot. All finishes crisply, cleanly, and with a light noble hop fade.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Ginger Man. pale goden beer with a thick sticky white head. Aroma is quite light. A touch of UK pale malt and not much else at all. Flavour is especially bland. Soft crackery malt, low carbonation and a reasonably creamy texture but it still come across as a bit watery. Crackery with a light earthy bitterness. Meh.

I didn’t like this at all.I managed to take the first drink and never touched it again.The closest thing i can compare this too is medicine I took as a child.Bad batch maybe or maybe this style isn’t for me.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Horse Brass Pub... Poured clear golden-yellow with a thick white head. The head diminished to a steady lacing on the beer through the whole beverage. Floral aroma with cracker-like malt grains. Light palate and light flavors created a nice session ale. Grassy and earthy malt tones with a tiny bit of hop bitterness in the finish.

500ml bottle from the GBBF bottle stall, drunk 28th Sept 08. Very lively orange amber with a small white head. Nice fresh citrus and hop aroma and a soft, balanced taste. Not as biting as many golden ales.
