Bottle. Golden and very clear appearance with a small head. Hoppy with some bitterness. A reasonable impression of a craft brewery pale ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
New Fuller’s bottle. The old Fuller’s bottle was one of the classiest beer bottles around, this new one looks cheap and boring. I can’t imagine them using it for the Vintages? Anyway, Wild River has a distinctive aroma of American hops. Mild hoppy taste with some orange peel type of hoppiness in the finish. Zesty is the word, I believe. Good, but in the end it starts to feel a bit watery, 5% and more body would have been better.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, cooking. Lager looks with a fast dissipating white foam. Nose of fizz, stale Madeira cake, tea-like hop trying to emerge from behind rancid butter and shortbread. House fruity orange and dunked Rich Tea notes; bitter and vaguely floral but damaged, overly carbonated and unattractively buttered with it. Decent deep malt afters like dry roasted peanut. Otherwise pretty poor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample from cask at the brewery. Golden colour. Aroma and flavour of citrussy American hops, very refreshing and pleasant. Also hints of tropical fruits. Might rerate when I get a full pint.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours pale yellow to pale golden with minimal frothy top, minimal lasing. Pleasant aroma of hoppy sweetness, but seems that one hops variety is over others, just can’t say wich. Interesting nose notes. Taste is pleasantly well hopped bitter with light sweet background, malt profile seems a bit sharp but maybe it’s just above average carbonation. Herbal hoppy, bitter aftertaste- nice, at least average body, malty thick. O.A. - I just like it, simple brew, hopped well with quite mild overall flavor. Nice for casual use, more that my previous rate.
