2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, pours a hazy light gold with a large white foamy head. Strong aroma of ginger and cordial. Spicy, but thin palate. Ginger, lemon, apple and raisin flavours, but with cardboard malt in the finish. Not for me - do others really like it that much?

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Cloudy, pale golden with a small, white head. Aroma of honey, ginger and oranges. Medium body with rather sweet fruits and honey and also some ginger. Ends fairly dry. Actually quite balanced and refreshing - and very summery. 040208

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden, slightly green very hazy body with a small head. Fruity aroma with ginger. Citrus and ginger in the taste. Small and plenty of boubles. Citrus and ginger aftertaste makes a very light feeling.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. A rocky white head sits atop a clear pale straw yellow brew. Large fresh almost ginger ale type fragrance with contrasting flavours. Biting dryness, spices and definately the Elderflowers though I would have almost said dandylions. It’s an eclectic, different pick-n-mix type brew - I’ll go out on a limb and suggest that while many won’t, I think it’s not too bad...

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Perhaps a bit harsh in my comments but this is a fairly pedestrian golden ale style. Well constructed nevertheless. Light malts, faint honey, and a nice elegant spice finish. Not miles away from Coopers Pale and Sparkling, at least to my tastes.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The colour was pale amber gold, and there was a light head. The aroma was strong fruit and ginger coriander. The taste had strong spicy ginger, and there was a crisp light hoppy finish. This was a quite fresh beer with strong fruit, and it was quite crisp.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very floral with strong corriander aroma. Tangelo hits first in the flavor with corriander finishing. Little vanilla or elderflower presence.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice golden-orange colour. Vanilla is apparent in the aroma. Interesting flavour: citrusy (but not like a witbier, you can really taste the tangelo), and pretty sweet, not much hop balance at all.
