2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Beer poured a nice light clear orange color with a white head the quickly disappeared. The bottle clamed "Aromatic" however I found there to be little aroma. A nice balance of malt and citrus notes, just really had to search for them. Taste was nice with a touch of sweetness from caramel malts balanced by a good dose of bitterness. Some citrus notes at the back of the palate. Medium body that finished a little bit o the dry side making the beer very refreshing. Overall a very sessionable, balanced beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 26, 2015 Bottle from Cambridge Wine Merchants, Mill Road. Light sienna born, clear. Simple aroma of caramel and agave syrup. The taste is sweet throughout, and to be honest it gets a little bit sickly at the end. Too carbonated in the bottle for my liking. It’s ok, but not as good as I was expecting or hoping.

Bottle from local market. Copper clear. Crisp malty, some caramels, light herby english- style lemony hops. Nice bodied, nice refeshing. Clean, caramels, nice citrussy notes. Havent had one of these in years, but glad to see its still as good. After all the carpeting today, this really hits the spot.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Brought round ours by Pater. Clear, dark gold. Barely a head. Fusty malts. Noble hops. Bit of spice. I used to like this on draught. Either it’s changed, or I have. It’s ok. Bit malty and sweet. Bit dull, really.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 330 ml bottle at Il Maltese. Bright but light golden yellow, perfectly clear, with a tiny, bubbly white head. Pretty subtle aroma, on the nose sweet malts, honey, light nuttiness, slightly herbal with a hint of butter. Definitely sweet upfront, light bitterness and astringency, decently balanced. Extremely watery but easy drinking. Zesty and malty aftertaste. Soft carbonation, light body, slightly creamy texture. Above average.
