2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very gentle floral aroma. Taste is light to the point of bland. Very gentle hops giving a herbal note, with a pleasing bitterness to finish. Slightly too carbonated for my tastes.
It’s not a bad beer but too middle of the road for me. Perhaps a good choice for the drinker who prefers the classic English ipa over the more extreme ipa currently in fashion

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice light amber with a white head than thins with slight lacing. Not much in the nose but a good refreshing quench when it hits the palate. Quite carbonated, good bitterness and a tang of tangerine there and in the aftertaste. This is better than previous ratings imply, don't be put off by m&s branding.

Golden amber with a moderate off white covering.

Medium bodied, moderate carbonaton with a little spritz, dry grassy finale with a sprinkle of hop bitterness.
