2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle (Marks & Spencer, Tallinn)
Amazing sharp citrussy and rose-hip aroma, so floral, and so,erm rosey. Bright gold, small brief head. Taste is an inharmonious mix of hoppy pale ale, and wheaty components. Retronasals are quite marmaladey. Body a little watery, crisp carbonation. Finish is a little weetabixy, and with a huge astringent bitter bite. Some strange vapours later, not alcohol, not solventy, just strange. A bit lifeless and pasteurised. Final sip had some burnt treacle in its taste. But I’d given up caring.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle. (Marks & Spencer) London, England.
Clear deep golden colour with a small white head.
Belgian style yeastiness, sweet maltiness and fruity hops in the aroma.
Metallic notes, Belgian yeast and sweet maltiness in the flavour. Very low carbonation. Was this really an American Pale Ale?

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From Fosse. Veiled gold with a slim fine collar. Aroma of drains, hedges, TCP, hint of candy banana. Shrubby, herbal hints with dank and banana yeast; coriander (leaf) and parsley-like impressions; heavy mineral presence. Hard to believe it contains Nelson Sauvin. Too yeasty and phosphoric for my liking. A step backwards from Adnams.
