3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 500ml. *** Colour: Bright, hazy golden yellow. Big, fluffy white head. ***
Nose: Grains, yeast, a hint of lemon. Mild herbs. ***
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, but hardly watery. Active carbonation. ***
Taste: Light caramel, floral hops, yeast and mild herbs at the start. Rather hoppy and bitter toweards the middle, some herbs. Bitter finish, or hops and a little lemon, more lemony in the aftertaste. ***
Impressions: Yeasty and agreeably bitter, well, "bitter" (although that style designation really doesn’t tell anyone anything!) with quite a profile to it, more substance than most golden ales. Well done.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark golden/light orange. Head is not big but pretty thick and nicely persistent. Moderate lacing. Aroma of light caramel and crackery/crisp malts, a herbal hint and subtle fruitiness. Taste follows the aroma with light to average sweetness and bitterness. Finish is dry and distinctly bitter, but in a delicate way. Both aroma and taste are not bold, but definitely fine. Light body with low to medium crispness, easy mouthfeel. Nice one

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden blonde beer with a slight undertone of bitter flavor. Beer has quite a bit of carbonation/fizz and pour pretty fast out of the bottle so take care in pouring. I wasn't able to taste the hit of sweetness that was referenced on the label. Instead, this beer tasted a bit metallic.
This is by far my least favorite offering from Hobson.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2015 Cask at the Bell & Talbot, Bridgnorth. Light gold with a small uneven white head. Light malty aroma. Taste picks up a bit with a basic but pleasant bittersweet. Hops aren’t particularly noticeable so the malt rules the roost. A bit warm and buttery in the finish. No thanks.
