2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle. Pours hazy amber with one finger of light beige head that disappears quickly. Aroma is light with sweet malts, caramel and light citrus. Taste starts with quite plain malts and jumps to a vegetal bitter dry hoppy finish without any noticeable fruity aroma in the middle. Maybe some citrus peel but still on the bitter side. Medium body, slightly watery finish, light to medium carbonation. A bit deluding.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Itís ale and itís pale. Itís citrusy, but doesnít kick at all. And since there isnít too much hoppy character, fact that the maltyness is neither complex, interesting or with a presence, makes the beer kind seem lacking. A drinking beer if you donít pay attention to drinking, but at a heavy price.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Typical pale ale, without any fuzz. Plain and simple malt and bitterness. Richer than a lager, but not by much.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can bought from Draft House Charlotte Street. Not much aroma, just a little light and malty. Flavour fairly nondescript - would like to try this on keg for a comparison.
