3.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured amber with a white head. Really no lacing. Light aroma of bread, biscuit, something like that. Body held up. Flavor also. Not bad for $1. No lie.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Straw gold with a thin white head. Lots of carbonation bubbles. Nose is sweet and malty with a lemon hop. Taste is malty and lagerish, with a light lemon zesty tang. Carbonation isn’t too much and helps it to glide across the tongue. Lagery, but decent.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer has a trashy, dirty skunky mouthfeel and finish. This doesn’t make it very drinkable on a very hot day like today. Still not bad though, easily finished the bottle.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Golden beer with a strong white head. The aroma is yeasty and dry, and the flavour is mildly toffee with long dryness and bitterness at the finish. Overall a nice golden beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle): Pours a clear golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of citrus fruits, biscuit, malt and a slight earthy, floral scent. Dry, grass, floral and faint hop taste with a sweet malt base. Moderate bitterness but quite thin body. It’s a simple, refreshing beer but not much else.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear 500ml bottle: third beer of a random tasting even on 15 Mar 2013. Poured into an ’Old Speckled Hen’ badged pint vase shaped glass (at home).
Pleasant light amber/golden blonde in colour with a small and swiftly fading white head of popping bubbles: carbonisation rising through the clear body adding to the surface fizz.
Malts rule this brew although the hops do give it a sharp edge and bitterness. The aroma was of baked fruit biscuits and slightly woody. The taste followed the same way but as mentioned sharper and quite bitter, especially as the mouth dries.
The beer lacks punch and body depth to be honest: OK but not enough ’umph’ to make me want another.
