2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled, 500ml from Tebay Services, Orton, Cumbria. Gold with white head. There is a surprisingly odd taste from the start with this beer, waxy, sour orange pith is the closes I could think of, bitter and fruity, really difficult to describe. The flavour continues throughout the beer, which was a shame as the malt is light and biscuity. Not great.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle at Craig’s, cheers Niall! Pours pale gold, thin white head. Definitely sherbet-to-brett on the nose, which has thinned out the beer to something not recognisable as golden/blonde ale. Sour fruits taste. Probably not intentional.

1.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Odd murky, odd visible carbonation, odd mealy head. Rusty sour lime. There’s so many failings here. Palate is engaged four a massive sour . Like pouring a packet of refreshers into a carton of milk on the window sill and giving it a good shake. Nonsense. And I managed to bring two of these back from Cumbria.
