3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Strong toasty nose. Pale gold with a creamy head. Flavour, while a bit watery, is reasonably refreshing and satisfying if undistinguished. That toasty, biscuity quality carries through all the way and gives a sense that this would be an appealing session beer. Very slight sourness at the very end.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Orangey, gold colour with a slim white head. Fruit and veg aroma, some malt. Inoffensive comes to mind regarding the taste; light hops, some malt, slightly bitter. Light to medium mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. Not bad, but dull.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
An unremarkable bottle. Quite a good head, but I donít like the dull, medium colour. Otherwise there wasnít enough of anything: aroma, taste, bitterness. Best thing is the rat on the bottle.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Morrisons, High Wycombe, Bucks. Boring golden bottled bitter devoid of almost any character with just some trace malt towards the end (slightly sweet, biscuit). Incredibly dull but not unpleasent.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Solid but unremarkable English "golden bitter". It poured a caramel colour with a short white head. Hint of strawberries and some sweet malt in the nose. A little skinny in the body but quenching. Well rounded fruitiness in the middle and a late burst of bitterness. Decent session ale but thereís not enough going on to bring you back otherwise. (Bottle)
