2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle from Sainsbury's.
Very small white head. Clear golden body. Nose is very sweet, floral and a bit syrupy. Flavour is a little apple, biscuit, caramel. Very sweet and malty, aftertaste is sweet. Mouthfeel is quite thin with minimal carbonation. I'm really not sure about this beer, not one I'm in a hurry to revisit.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
11.2 oz bottle. Mild herbal-floral notes, a bit of lemongrass and some sweetness. Medium golden amber clear with thin white head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Sweet with pale malts, herbal notes and a light bitterness. Overall, a mild ale. Not my type of ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
11.2 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a golden color with numerous yeast floaties. The head is two fingers high, and barely off-white in shade. Settling down to one finger quickly, it leaves very sticky, thick patches of lacing on the glass.
S: I really pick on the herbal quality this brew was going for - definitely smells like heather. There’s also an undercurrent of honey throughout. Little to no caramel in the malt profile, but there might be a touch of toffee also.
T: Heather hits the palate immediately. After that, notes of honey appear, both in the sweetish middle and dry finish. They did a good job of showcasing the herbal flavors, despite being simplistic to a fault.
M: The finish has a good crisp dryness to it, with only a slight linger of sweetness to help balance it out. Maybe it’s a bit under-carbonated - watery even - but it’s still very easy to drink.
O: A fine quaff with no wow factor. I could easily drink this again, if not very often. Good to break up the monotony of mediocre brown ales and IPAs, though.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a small white creamy head that mostly lasts. Body is clear yellow, sparkles are visible.
Aroma contains moderate malts (dark breads, grain), light hops (herbs, citrus fruits), moderate yeasts (leather, earth) and grape, cassis, cola, pear).
Flavor starts of light acidic and then goes to bitter and light sweet.
Body is light with watery texture and soft carbonation.
Nothing special yet quite enjoyable.

Smooth taste strong in malt flavor. With a very mildly dry finish. Decent beer to sip on but wouldn't drink more than one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Couleur cuivre pâle. L’arôme est d’abord de la cannelle, puis de la bruyère et peut-être aussi caramel. Le goût est de malt, une légère douceur comme le miel, et quelques épices (peut-être la bruyère). Il est très léger, mais plein de saveur et assez complexe.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
The smell is like of raspberry fruit, plus a bit like lavender. Aroma is a bit of flower, a bit of herbs, but nothing like hops, rather like gruit. Pale colour, quickly diminishing head. The beer is rather dry, with small bitterness. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation - too big for me. Ok, it’s interesting, but I won’t drink it often.

Aroma of Heather, cinnamon, and caramel. Pours blonde with nice film. Taste is pleasant with Heather, herbal tea, and caramel. Nice.
