3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml brown bottle. Lemony yellow pour, quite hazy. Two fingers of white head, soft clingy lacing in the glass. Citrusy nose, some lime zest and grapefruit. Taste has a wheaty dryish, crisp malt background, decent dose of flavouring hops add some spicy grass and orangey citrus notes. Dry finish with some citrus peels and grass. Light in body, soft mouthfeel, good drinkability. Had a lot of these wheaty-hoppy UK golden ales lately and I really dig them.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Label says Bitter, Ratebeer says Blonde Ale. Who can tell??? Pours greenish straw-gold, 1.5-finger white head, rather nice lacing. Nose is fresh citrus, light pineapple, peach, and cold cream above a clean wheat/grain bed, with some earthiness and graphite. Flavours are peachy/hoppy, with tropical fruit throughout. Some rosewater and cold cream to be found here as well, with a pleasant bitterness and spicy earth notes. On the negative side, there is a vegetal/Indian food note that while very slight, does tend to run through this beer. Hmmm... I’m not sure this deserves such a low score, as it is very pleasant, but it’s not quite brilliant.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Minicask. Beautiful pale bitter, with a big fruity aroma. The America and Czech hop flavours are definitely in there, with citrus and pepperiness battling for dominance. Lovely chalky bite and very full-flavoured for a session strength beer. Was a favourite years ago and seems to be right back on form. Well carbonated and a fine tangy finish.

Bottle. Pale yellow with big lasting white head. Stronger than expected aroma; perhaps a Belgian yeast note. Almost chalky body. Light dust and strong yeastiness. A lot of flavour for 3.8%.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a small white head and a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild citrus and some earthy notes as well. Taste is light malty sweetness and a moderate hop bitterness. Quite full flavored considering its meager 3.8%ABV. A light and refreshing ale, with the benefit of flavors found only in stronger ales.
