2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden colour. Thin and watery texture. Light, mild flavour with only a background hint of hop. The idea of these 2.8% beers is very good but need to be backed up by more flavour. It is possible.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear golden beer with a foamy head. Faint sweet aroma. Slight hop flavour with a bit of a fruity edge. Finish is slight sickly. It’s not unpleasant just deeply average.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle: BBD 30 June 2014. Poured into two old ’Home Ales’ countryman half pint tankards, as my wife had half of the bottle on a hot and sunny 26 Aug 2013 in our back garden.
Pleasantly surprised at the quality and depth of flavour for such a weak and cheap beer.
Looked fine in the glasses: deep old golden colour, clear and tidy, on top a thin, but full head of white bubbles.
Malts lead the way in both the aroma and taste with the hops arriving later in the mouth. More sweet than bitter, more thin bodied than heavy. For a 2.8% ABV beer I thought it OK and very refreshing in the sun.

Bottled, 500ml pasteurised from Sainsbury’s in Banbury. Gold with white head. Quite a thin, simple, sweetish beer, fruity light hop, short on the palate, almost no follow through. Nothing special.

Slightly hazy deep golden color, minimal head.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled 08/03/13. A copper coloured beer with a white head. Caramel and cardboard in the nose. Sweetish sugar water notes in the mouth. A thin body. Not nasty but dull. There is a reasonable fruitiness. Moving on.
