4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A fine, bottle fermented ale. Far superior when bottle is inverted and/or rolled prior to pouring (contrary to comments below). A love a beer that has a "Best After" date rather than "Best Before"!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Unclear hazy yellow body with a medium white head. Quite weak in the aroma - yeast, flower and fruit. Somewhat sourish flavor with some hoppy bitterness. Nice taste but too thin!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a bit too much and now i have floaties. Any way, cloudy amber, no head. Yeast and hops, the citrus kind. Some malt backing it all up. Malt is a little more forth coming, the hops are a touch more bold, and there is presence of alcohol in the flavors. Some fruit as well. Medium bodied, a tad of spices in the palate and a slightly bitter finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy dishwater brown appearance. Minimal white fizzy head. Fruity and yeasty aroma. Mostly yeasty flavour with a nutty bitter finish. Dry and prickly mouthfeel.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Safeway, Rubery, Birmingham. After pouring most of this, I read the bottle which suggested care was needed to avoid disturbing the sediment - doh! Any way, after leaving the poured drink for about 15 mins, I could see a lot of the small particles congregated at the bottom, and set off on the rate. Looks just like a Hefeweizen, but with a smaller, snowy white head. Retains a very lagery taste, but with extra lemon and milkiness. Not as dramatic as I expected. Soft in the beginning, adding some clarity in the middle, before a slightly grainy, dryish finish. A slight let down.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Quite disappointing. Little aroma and little flavour of any character. Cloudy orange colour. The beer is clean and has a reasonable alcohol taste, but there just is not enough character and it is almost too safe.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
cloudy, pale gold color, short head, decent hops, fruity, pears-oranges, a toasty-maltiness; bubbly with a fruity toasty malt mix, decent hop flavor, yeasty, smooth and refreshing, not too rich or thick, a great refresher, acidic with a light sourness

Very mild, not much flavor to speak of. Hints of roasted malt, maybe a slight, sweet fruit flavor.
