330mo bottle pours deep good with little white head. Nose is sweet, vegetal with a bit of toffee. Taste is toffee and herbs, grassy hops. Slightly bitter finish with a decent medium bodied mouthfeel and light carbonation. Not really my thing and nothing here to get greatly excited by. Pleasant enough though.

very bland. I’m not too familiar with the style but it tastes like a crap golden ale. You can drink it but you ask yourself why?

Bottle as a christmas gift from Jill. Cheers! Pours amber with a fading off white head. Mild slightly fusty malty aroma. The taste is similar with some citrus and woody notes. Thin bodied. Fairly poor.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden amber with a white head. Aroma of some herby grassy hops, sweet biscuit and some sweeter malts. Like a hoppy pilsner. The taste is rather herbal hoppy and with a rather crisp bitterness. Also some bready/Biscuit notes and some sweeter malts.

Bottle Aldi 01/06/2015. Pleasant crystal malt/fruity aroma, recognisable steam beer. Clear coppor colour, almost no head, poor lacing. Taste moderate to heavy sweet, crystal malt, moderate fruit esters. Mouthfeel is heavy/oily, carbonation sparse.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Beer 52.
Aroma: Apple, hops, and a light floral aroma.
Appearance: Golden brown. Light head.
Taste: An almost cider-like apple bite upfront. Slight hop and lemon flavours.
Palate: Sweet, and sour upfront. Mellows quickly. Oily mouthfeel. Light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Quite a weird one... it kind of tastes like a snake bite (half beer / half cider). It’s quite refreshing at first, but when the beer gets warmer - it gets a bit funky.

Keg at Waiting Room. Rich toffee and caramel flavour with some grassy lagery hops. This tasted better on keg than it does from the bottle.
