2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle. Barely clear golden colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Grainy and slightly strawy aroma meets luckily citrusy hoppy overtones with a lemon touch. Taste is cautiously citrusy hoppy, grainy, strawy basis; slightly watery. A bit poor for a 25th anniversary Ale - and at the same time a document for the development of the craft beer scene: I could swear you’ll find a "Better Alcohol Drink" in London today. Maybe you could already in 2006. But that could mean to discredit ’The Excellence in Food and Drinks Awards’ - an objective not to be pursuited at this point, naturally.
