2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From bottle to pint glass. Aroma is massive cereal grain and slight grass with a faint perfume and rose petal accent. Clear deep yellow with white head that retained as a moderately full collar of small bubbles. Minimal patterning down the glass. Taste is grassy and floral hops. Lacks the rich maltiness that can make this style very interesting.

330ml bottle. Clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, hops, light fruit. Taste is malty, slightly sweet, caramel, fruit, slight hop bitterness. Fairly heavy carbonation. Wasn’t too keen on the flavours in this one, not one of their best beers in my opinion.

Bottle from London Food Centre. Poured pale golden with a small white head. Aroma of hop, malt and light fruit. Light/medium sweetness, medium bitterness with a light sour edge. Light/medium body, texture rather thin. Above average carbonation. Finish is bitter and a bit rough and generally unbalanced. Not the best in this set.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle. Golden colour with a fine, thin white head. Sweet honey and cereal notes on the nose. Little overbearing taste of alcohol whatsoever, with a mellow flavour of honey, hops, and fresh-baked bread. Very drinkable, and very enjoyable for the simplicity of taste.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Jan. ’16. A 0.33 l bottle from Prosi Exotic supermarket, Vienna. It poured a clear golden-amber body with a small head. Again, that typical dog food aroma. Flavor was only lightly bitter herbal, more sweet like caramel, bread, honey, apricot, and metal. Thin body with short malty finish. Empty, nothing much in here. The amber ale was better with less unpleasant off-notes.

12oz bottle. Clear straw pour with weak foam. Sweet artificial cherry, candy corn, and sugary corn flake cereal nose. Taste is sweeter, cloying, candy corn. Feels somewhat old and sticky. Heavy body considering.
