Poured a clear golden amber colour with a one-finger bubble head that diminished quickly and left some lacing. Moderate to high carbonation. Aroma sweet and a bit hoppy but not strong. Taste initially sweet followed by a very mild hops bitterness. Light body. Crisp smooth finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. A lightly hazy golden amber with a small but mostly lasting and somewhat lacing off-white head. Aromas of citrus, grassy hops and pale malts. Similar to taste with a distinct marmalade-esque bitterness to finish of moderate length and intensity. Light to medium bodied, crisp, clean and refreshing with medium carbonation. An ideal summer quaffer where the focus seems, without question, on sessionability.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais and drunk at home. Clear amber lasting ivory head. A little bit of a stale/oxydised aroma. Better in mouth, some decent malt hop balance and some decent bitterness on the finish. OK. Got better as it went down.

Bottle. Subtle aromas of caramel, bread and fruit. Medium orange, slightly hazy. Medium sweetness, chewy rather than crisp. Not a premium ale, but nothing to be sneezed at either.
