3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Morrison’s. Golden beer with a small white head. Not particularly different to other golden beers. Just a slight herby note. Ultimately a little plain.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Morrisons. Amber colour. Thin, white head. Sweet malt, some floweriness, as you’d expect. Taste is a sweet start, light, slightly peppery finish. The wrong side of sweet, for me.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home. Colore giallo dorato quasi limpido. Schiuma bianca molto fine, quasi una crema. Buona Persistenza. Profumo abbstanza intenso e di buona persistenza.Profuma di mollica di pane, di pan di spagna bagnato al limoncello, ha note floreali indistinte, forse un po’ di lavanda. Gusto particolare , scarso nell’intensità, tutto sommato piacevole ma un pelo anonimo. Si ritrova il floreale , e ha un live pizzicore che ricorda il pepe. Finale deciamente secco, brevissimo. Scarsa la peristenza in bocca, non è molto armonica , ma è abbastanza equilibrata. Può stancare velocemente, per la dolcezza maltata e la carenza di luppolatura.

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.
