500ml bottle from local Co-op. Pours a clear golden yellow with a frothy white head. Muted hop aromas, light tropical fruit, some light malt. Taste is well balanced between sweet and bitter. Light-bodied, slightly thin texture, clean crisp finish. Nice.

Et godt øl god fylde og aroma. lite skum. et godt øl å sitte og nippe til en kveldsstund, men ikke noe særlig spesielt.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle conditioned 500ml: BBD end of Jul 2013. Poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 7 Jun 2013. Co-Op badged as Gold Miner.
Good looking, gold and bright body with a full, deep head of white foaming bubbles.
The nose is subtle: biscuity malts and nuts mostly.
Malts to the fore in the taste as well: however, a crisp hop bitterness is also very evident in the flavour, it also gives the beer a dry finish. More complex than I thought it would be and interesting as well.
Lively and well carbonated: a very pleasant surprise to be honest.

Yeah, yeah, it’s fine. Was wondering why supermarket best beers aren’t brewed by better brewers (except for Tesco Finest double American or whatever it’s called). But it’s capacity right? Well how can Freeminer do it? Who the hell are they anyway. Come on Oakham, get yourselves a contract.

Bottle from a Co-op on Earl’s Court Road. Pours light copper with a white head. Aroma is very light caramel and light pitted fruit. Med body. Flavor is slight roast malt with a far amount of bitter - could be citrus. Drinks nicely. Finishes quite bitter.
