2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours out of the bottle with a thin white head that creates a tidy ring of large bubbles. The hoppy aroma is very apparent and balanced by some sweet caramel malty and vanilla notes. Crisp, refreshing first taste. Bready, wheat flavours upfront, stays sweet through the sip. There is a hoppy, graasy character at the finish. Easy to drink.

Bottle from the Beer Store. Light and bright golden with a creamy white head. Aroma of slightly sweet cookie, a bit of honey, and subtle herbal hops. Flavour follows - well balanced between mellow malt and leafy hops with a touch of orange blossom. Light, refreshing body. Good session ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 mL bottle. Golden-copper in colour, with a thick film of white head. Mild, malty aroma with a hint of herbal hops. The flavour is a little more grassy, with the hops leaning a little more toward lemon-lime citrus. Decent body for the abv - the Brits know how to do this better than us. Nice, sessionable beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught (Elm Tree, Cambridge)
Bland malty aroma. I guess. Dark straw. Brief loose head. Tastes of the same level of nothing as the aroma. Finish matches that non-event perfectly. Golden ale for someone who doesn’t want to taste his beer.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Crystal clear, pale gold, clean, dry and fairly bitter. No great aroma or taste, thin-bodied, some citrus but fairly forgetful. Not many late hops were sacrificed making this one.
