2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, thought I’d rated this some time ago but as I’d picked up one amongst others from SH Jones Bicester 23-09-06 I may as well rate it here. A warm golden colour you can get hops in the aroma but not much. Taste is a bit unbalanced and not at all like the cask version bitterness seems to be a bit unchecked and ends up becoming one of the main features masking all else, some maltiness little sweetness but as already mentioned they are drowned out by the bitterness. Ok but not great

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Unexceptional but quite drinkable. It suffers for its lack of alcohol, leaving the flavor flat and simple, but not necessarily bad.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle from Eide Handel. Shiny copper coloured body. Off-white head with fine retention. Smooth leafy hops on the nose, semi-sweet. Flavours of caramel and leafy hops. Sharp, but short-lived, dry bitter ending. Not too thin. A decent session beer (shared with friends in Tromsø, 02.08.2013).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Hay-like cereals, stone minerals and orange-y splashes lead to pepper-y hop bitterness in this bubbly, lean quencher.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the amber gown.
-The flavour profile is balanced and delicate.
-This is akin to many Světlý Výčepní I’ve had.
-If it were on cask, I would drink it like water.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Brewdog Slovensko. Aroma caramel, light hops, very light fruitiness. Clear amber colour. Medium sized white head, very short duration. Taste is mostly hoppy right from the beginning. Hops profile is simple and uninteresting, earthy, with quite stong metallic tang. Finish is plain bitter and metallic.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. A gift for my 35th b-day togehther with 25 more beer bottles. Malty aroma with tiny hints fruits. The color is nice golden brown. The taste is malty, refreshing, espresso like, bitter finish. Alcohol low due to 3.5% abv. The overall taste is similar to a home brew I recently made from concentrate (a bitter ale style beer).
