Bottle, 4.1%. Pours slightly hazy amber with stable white head. Clear aroma of hops, with notes of fruit and citrus. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with pronounced estery and citric notes. Hints of nuts. Bitter, rough aftertaste. Drinkable and OK, but nothing extraordinary.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
"Handcrafted in the Cotswold Hills since 1849". You’d think they could’ve come up with something a bit better by now. Times change, tastes change, technology changes. Pours clear gold, very minimal white head. Aromas are buttery, some light floral hops. Taste has a little spice, but mostly water. Promised pizzazz plainly passed. Piffle.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle from a supermarket in Helsinki, 4.1% abv. Clear dark yellow colour, small frothy whit mostly dissipating head, decent lacing. Light malty aroma of bisquit, hay and dough, moderate fruity and floral hops. Taste is initially bittersweet turning into a fairly bitter longish finish with an astringent feel. Medium body, lively carbonation, dry texture. Not bad at all, a bit too much like lager, but still quite different and pleasant

Decent refreshing golden ale, lots of pilsener-like feeling. Nothing really unique, still good.
