3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, from Tesco Scunthorpe. Faintly hazy gold, good lasting fluffy white head and pleasant condition. Gentle fruity grain notes and solid citrus hops in the nose, quite fruity in the mouth initially, with a full bodied chalky graininess and a developing citrus hoppiness that becomes predominantly bitter with time. Bitter hoppiness lingers into the finish with even a suggestion of low levels of bretty Orval-like hop sack lurking.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has strong notes of lemon - is it from lemongrass? but also with notes of malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and lemon - I would never have guessed it came from Cascade hops - my guess was lemongrass, leading to a slightly acidic finish. Thanks fonefan for sharing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle) Hazy, golden colur with a medium-sized, minimal off-white foamy head. Flowery and lemon-fruity, slightly zesty hops aroma with a moderate malty sweetness. Bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied with a calm carbonation. Pale malty taste with traces of biscuits and a blend of fruity, bitter and woody hops; initially dry character that sweetens towards the rather short finish. Aromatic and uncomplicated Ale (11.VIII.09).

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
There’s nothing wrong with this beer, pale, bit of malt & slight citrus, fairly refreshing, but at the end of the day why bother. I know it’s nice & cheap but there’s so many better beers out there for a few pence more. Don’t get me wrong though drink this before any of the chemically mass produce rubbish available, but your report card would read ’could do better’.
