3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a pales yellow-gold with a quickly reduced white head, that leaves a persistent ring and good lacing. Nose of soft malt, biscuit, mild hop presence in the nose; nice and crisp and malty and clean. Palate is also light and clean with decent hopping, good fruity maltiness, and a crisp finish. A very sessionable but not terribly complex bitter.

Very pale golden beer. Very fresh crackery malt aroma. Light wheaty/spicy notes. Flavour also shows a very clean, crisp malt base with a touch of pleasant fruity estery character. Clean, well-balanced and easy to drink... just what you want in a bitter.

Large ceramic swing-top bottle I believe was brought by JoeMcPhee. Pours a slightly hazed light gold with a linen white head. Mild aroma of citrus and grain. Flavor is a bit more distinct than the aroma with moderate grain and light bitterness at the finish. I believe this is my first B.C. rating!

Fizzy light golden with a white head. Biscuity crackery aroma- fizzy feel, a bit thin feeling. Dry flavor with a lightly crackery background and mild bread crust notes. Simple, but nice and dry throughout.
