500ml bottle from Scottish Real Ale Shop, Kilmahog. Pours clear gold, white head. Aroma presents some apple funk. Taste is light golden ale territory with some apple cider influence. Neither here nor there really.

This is the bastard child of Budweiser and apple juice. Be a cider or be an ale. What the fuck. Indecisive and it shows.

Amazing beer! Tastes a bit like a mix of cider and beer! Might be very good with dessert...

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Asda, Dumbarton.
Pours a light whisky amber colour, with some off-white head. Aroma is overly sweet, with interesting notes of apple, some cinnamon, nuttiness. Quite interesting at first, but I struggled to finish the bottle with the overpowering sweetness.

Expecting this to be weird, but was actually different. The Apple is there but this is a beer not a cider. As a change I would definitely try another one. The quality of the beer was there in terms of balance of malt and hop and bitterness was appropriate. Mouthfeel was good. Jury is scratching their heads on this one.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500mL bottle BBE: Oct 2016. Well-chilled. Pours a crystal clear copper or apple-juice coloured body, with small, tight, off-white head with good lacing. Clean, malt-forward aroma of lightly-baked potato, crisps, some citrus and a hint of strawberry. A light sourness on the tongue is overtaken by a heavy, artificial sweetness, with a hint of bitterness on the finish struggling to break through. The body is light, with a smooth texture, low-medium carbonation and an unpleasant, bittersweet finish. As a whole, this doesn’t work for me. It gives the impression of a cheap cider mixed with a bland, uninspiring base ale. Maybe a beer to attract newcomers to the craft, but not one to keep them there.
