3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, 500ml from The Co-Op, Banbury. Gold with white head. A bit of a gusher on opening, plenty of life happening in that bottle. Thinnish, lagery type beer with a light lemony note, juice rather than zest, thin crisp lagery malt. It’s ok for a beer to watch England beat Scotland, which made it slightly more enjoyable. As I did a fair bit of Offa’s Dyke in April I think I earned this one, and believe me, it does go up ’n’ down.

500ml bottle from Ludlow Food Centre, sipped whilst waiting for my phone to charge at a campsite. A light and breazy ale, very mild malts with a tantalising sniff of citrus. Nothing to write home about.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle conditioned. A gusher. Golden beer with small head after a very lively pour with floating chunks of sediment. Aroma is citrus hops and a bit of bread. Taste is also citrus hops and bready with dry malts. This beer tasted quite good. Would it have tasted better without the sediment?

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle conditioned, from Vaaland, Bryne. ABV is 4.2%. Plenty of sediment in the bottle. Hazy very pale yellow colour, like a witbier. Large and lasting white head. Moderate wheaty and yeast aroma with some spicy and zesty notes. Refreshing wheaty flavour, with citrussy, herbal and spicy hops. Nice bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. However, this is not a traditional English "bitter" by any stretch of the mind.
