2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden orange body, clarity reasonable, small head drops away quickly.
Aroma of light caramel malts and spicy orange British hops.
Lean body, drops away on the palate a bit quick. Moderate carbonation.
Pleasant enough combination of biscuity malt and earthy/floral hop. Moderate bitterness, finishes a bit short.
Nothing wrong with it, could be highly sessionable, but a tad unremarkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale golden-amber pour with some light herbal and spicy hoppiness. There is a little bit of light pale malt as well as a touch of fruit. A little bit of soft peppery character on the finish. A nice light pale ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle [500ml]. Purchased and drank while walking around Dover Castle, something I could never do back at home. Appearance: No idea as it was right out of the bottle. Aroma was hoppy along with caramel malt and some grain. Somewhat hoppy flavour, tastes like Goldings, with caramel malt in the back and a decent bitter finish. Pretty good, I donít come across Pale Ales here very often so itís a nice find.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Hazy gold with a coat of white head. Modest aroma of pears, flowers, a little caramel. Rather watery, but less so than might be expected. A little fruity sweetness, dusty and floral hops, decent bitterness. Not very engaging but refreshing.

Bottled, 500ml from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon. Hazed gold with white head. Light, fruity lager like body, a little flabby with a touch of sweetness. Nothing to really get hold of. Pretty average.
