3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask @ South Western Arms, Southamton. Hazy yellow body with a small off-white head. Light in aroma, some citric fruit, flower and grass. Light and quite refreshing in flavor, mils, soft pale malt, some citric fruit and grassy bitterness. Medium body and light in aftertaste. All in all not bad for a golden ale, at least more flavor and bitterness than expected.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Green glass bottle from a garden centre- an odd choice of material in which to showcase your hoppy unpasteurised ale. Aroma of rabbits, dandelion sap, biscuits and buttered greenery. Sickly bittersweet honeyed flavour like a German novelty hanf bier with a lemony, stewed, nettle-like citrus and sappy thistle character receding into sunstruck diacetyl and malted milk biscuits. Can’t escape the essence of pissy hutch. Hoppy,certainly- if rabbits drank beer they’d drink this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle into a UK pint sleeve at home on 30th Oct 2015. Slight haze to the blonde body, on top a white, thin head. Really floral in nature, both the nose and taste are dominated by a flowery perfume like feel, caramel notes burst through, giving it a sweet initial hint. The finish is more bitter and dry than the start, overall not bad at all: different and interesting blend throughout.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at home. Pours a very pale yellow with a thin white head. Slight floral aroma, also a toffee aroma. Toffee also in the flavour, sweet with not much bitterness to balance. Some wheat makes it a smooth drinker. Not bad, but not great.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of my all time faves out of a barrel, not bottle conditioned which is a shame but still very drinkable. Floral aromas, lovely hopped balance, all day drinker this one!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Getreidig und hopfig mit ein bisschen an Kräutern. Mild, trinkbar, nichts besonderes, aber für durchaus süffig und trinkbar.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle brought back home from England. The beer pours out in a deep golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of fresh hops and straw. Taste of fresh hops, barley, bread, straw, flowers and mild herbs. Grainy hints. Easy drinkable, yet nothing special.
