3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. Poured as unremarkable as it drank. No doubt better than a lager, but malt and hops where fairly balanced and surpressed so bit of a nothing beer. Drinkable though

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy brown pour, beige/tan head. Medium carbonation. Toffee aroma, earthy floral hop notes. Taste is surprisingly watery, with a bready backbone and some present bitterness but little flavour to match. Astringency that wasn't expected. Not my favourite even though I usually like Holgate beers

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to tulip
Lots of tropical fruit, grapefruit, and caramel aromatics there seems to be a overripe apple aroma in the background. Slightly cloudy reddish amber with a long lasting, very creamy off white head. Fruity and some late lasting bready hoppiness; the fruit washes away almost immediately. Kind of disappointing given the aroma.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a nice amber colour with little head. Aroma is mostly of malt As well as taste. There is some hop bitterness but not much hop flavour. Pretty lacklustre ale.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Vibrant fruity aroma but sadly it was a little thin and fairly bland, not a beer for those who like a lot of flavour. Very sessionable though.
