3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5 l bottle from supermarket. Great head. Aroma has fruity hops and so does the taste too. Also a hint of malts. Quite refreshing. Everything is in balance.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Kuparin värinen, vaahto häviää varsin nopeasti. Tuoksussa varsin paljon humalaa, ei kuitenkaan äärimmäisyyksiin asti. Alkumaku on melko mieto, mutta humalan maku tulee kuitenkin hyvin esiin loppumaussa. Jokseenkin tasapainoinen mutta varsin yksioikoinen maku. Suutuntuma varsin kevyt.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 500 ml at home, poured into a Guinness glass. ABV 3.5%
Pours a bright golden orange beer, with little activity in it. Two fingers of white head, thick, with average retention and medium lacing left on the glass.
Aroma of caramel, cookie dough, english hops.
Taste of malt, caramel, cookies. Moderate hoppy flavour, light bitterness with average duration. Kind of metallic taste on the finish without being annoying.
Medium thin body, very good for a low alcohol beer. Good carbonation too.
Overall another good beer from Fuller’s.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Good looking bottle. Pours deep amber liquid with modest white bubbly head. Wellknown aroma of honey, blossom & herbs. The taste is really bitter lasting through the finish to aftertaste. The palate is anyway thin & watery. The form is better than the content.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle bierpost, BB 15xii13. Love these bulky Fuller’s bottles, so confidently disproportionate to their silly sessionable 3,5ABV. Wonderfully faint floral Lady Grey aroma, smooth and light mouthfeel, hints of biscuits caramalt. Basically watery tea and biscuits, as served in a frugal household. What could be more English? Oh yes, serving this lukewarm with no head. Check! Could have this all night from the keg for sheer sustenance.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
With just 3,5 abv the winner of an evening. Caramel, grass and some hops in the start. Then altering to more caramel, ending with a slight hoppy, sugarish finish. Good and classy one.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours out of the bottle in a clear light amber colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of hops and straw - quite dusty. Taste of hops, basement, flowers, grass and leaves. Hints of malt and nuts. Easy and nice to drink, yet little bit too thin and weak in body and with too many earthy hints.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber with a head that fades to a ring. Aroma is toasty malts with grassy/earthy hops.
Taste is light sweetness, and subtle grassy hops with a hint of citrus. Bit thin bodied (low alcohol) and medium carbonation. Not intense, but a nice subtle bitter.
