3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear golden with a generous white foamy head. There was obvious aroma of citrusy hops. The taste is very bitter and quite strong, with a lot of bitterness in the aftertaste. Itís a nice and enjoyable beer, but perhaps a bit strong and with a bit too bitter aftertaste. But still, quite enjoyable.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle. Pale yellow gold, not much head, doesnít look great. Not much nose, some dusty hops and some grain, a sweet banana like fruity note. Flavour is buttery, more grain, not great. Thin body, medium carbonation, papery notes in the finish. Poor for a Fullers beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
50cl bottle. Light golden with delicate small head.
NOSE : the aromas are moderately strong but fresh with notes of citrus fruits and toast bread. There is this dry aroma of zest and hay that pierce when the beer is agitated.
SIP : water like density with delicate carbonation. The texture is like water too. The beer has toast bread like malt flavor. Gets dry and becomes more and more bitter towards the end. Meanwhile the flavors are citrus zest like and there is a pine like crisp to it. A bit soap like background. The finish is dominated by moderate bitterness.
OVERALL : For me it lacks a bit of body and carbonation. Still it is a spot on beverage for a summer refreshment and I will surely come back to it.
