3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy orange hue, almost no head. Hoppy nose with hint a wildflowers and citrus. Malt is noticeable but it's really the hops which get your attention. Wheat bread aftertaste which the hops cut through. A good standard bitter.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2004 The real reason why you should fly BA instead of Qantas. From the can at 10,000m it is still quite nice, but on arrival a pint of this is just what you need, even at 6am. Rich coppery hue that is well supported by a complex blend of malts and the distinctive UK hop varieties. The best pommy brew in my book, I smile even though it is not candid CAMRA

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale orange colour, fizzy head that lasts for few seconds. Hoppy aroma, with strawberry hints. The flavour is malty, quite sweet and fruity (traces of strawberry, orange, citrus and green apple). The finish is heavily hopped. A good beer...

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Copper color, little and not really lasting head. Roasty flavours clearly dominate over fruity flavours. Slightly bitter finish. Bread and malt in the aftertaste. Not really well drinkable.

Clear golden colour. As caesar said, an easy to drink beer. Nothing special.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bright orangey color almost brown. Light hops and a bit of fruit in an otherwise vacant nose. Body is lightly hoppy (goldings?) and fruity. Finishes sweet and really quite boring.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale straw coloured with light carbonation levels, this beer is all about balance. In this case the balance is perfect: the beer is not dry and not sweet but all the malt and hop character comes through beautifully.
