2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A Mes rate:
Bottle from whatever supermarket was doing the "buy this, send us your rate and we will refund your purchase" deal. Bought it, rated it (on here and on the postcard thing that came with the bottle) and it was crap. My rate has obviously been nuked during the change of name. Bollocks. So here it is again. Come on, you’re really interested aren’t you?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml Bottle 04/03/2007
Some carbonation. Hoppy aroma. Clear golden coloured hoppy and slightly spicy. Smooth on the palate. A little dryness in a crisp malt finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from my trip through South Carolina. The aroma has some hops but mostly pale malt. The appearance is pale gold with a smaller head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall it’s rather unremarkable and not much of a beer by itself.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle pours golden with a short white head that stays briefly and leaves a bit of lace. Aromas of slight malts, some grassy hops a bit of skunk. Flavor is grain, a slight bit of citrus and some grass. A fair amount of carbonation gives this a fizzy mouthfeel. Fancy bottle.. Not so fancy of a beer. Kind of crappy actually

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Comes in a bottle that looks like a butt plug, so my expectations weren’t very high. Pours a glowing golden colour, with faint citrus and flower aromas. Despite the name it delivered a disappointing hop bitterness that was short-lived. Rather thin, and I can’t help feeling GK wimped out a bit on the IBUs with this one. If you’re going to call a beer hops, then make damn sure it tastes of hops!

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle under name of The Beer To Dine For. I expected a pretty light tasting beer, and thats exactly what I got. Poured a pale yellow with a quicky disapating white frothy head. Taste was very light malts and some citrus. not much else. Rather boring to me. But I have yet to find an English Ale I enjoy, so It might just be a style I dont care for. Perfectly drinkable on a hot day, we had with pork and it went well, just rather boring to me.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Exceptionally clear yellowish gold with a slick of white suds. Nose-wrinklingly metallic aroma. Smells like lager. Grassy and watery. Very tame and antiseptic-tasting on top of a Ridgeway Blue. Not half as hoppy. Would be completely demolished by food that was remotely spicy, despite the blurb. And yet a gently citrussy bitterness, boozy graininess and bready aftertaste that reminds me of a sweetish strong Belgian ale. Maybe Duvel or Maredsous. Or Piraat. OK, but nothing like as pungently hoppy as hoped for.
