2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy gold with a small white head. Hops and some yeast in the taste. Quite a sweet malty taste and a little bitterness. It tries its best to surprise us, but ultimately fails.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. A hazy yellow coloured lager with no head. The aroma is a bit skunky and sour. The taste is similar to a German lager with a reasonable level or hops and a bit of buttery malt. Tastes better than it smells, but that’s not hard.

The 78. Id been cycling all day so thats probably somethign to do with the high score here. Aroma was minimal but herbal grassy hops and slightly sweetish corn syrup. Taste is similar carbonationb pritty high, but exactly what i needed at the time.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap, The 78, Glasgow, RBESG 07. Straw, thin white head. Nose is slightly metallic hoppy, some floral and warm malt nose. Mouth is dusty maltiness, some tang there, and some metal. Mouth finishes non-existent, slightly warm, slightly dry and metallic. Disappointing.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle from Waitrose, labelled "Freedom Organic Beer". Looks like a standard lager, with white head that is short-lived. Malt & vanilla aroma, taste is quite tart. Finish is dry but short. Reasonable lager, but no more.

Bottle from Waitrose, Thame, Oxon, 27-07-07 Dark golden in colour with nice crispy, fresh, malty, hoppy taste tasted really quite nice and came out as second best of the night.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle. Aroma is slightly skunky with grassy hops. Pretty lacking in body and flavour, thin malt and grassy hops in the background. Not something I would drink again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, filtered, 330 ml. Straw colour with white head. I have to admit to not having great expectations of this beer, but what a great surprise, ok a thinnish lagery malty body, but then rushes of lemon, pithy citrus notes and a cut grass undertone, a really pleasant beer, not great but very good for a sunday afternoon. I like it.
