3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Golden with a small head. Slightly bitter with some subtle presence of hops.. Not a show stopper but close to being a reasonable beer.

Quite a tasty light ale. Nothing jumps out particularly, but a decent beer for the summer.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2013 Bottled 01/02/13. A golden coloured beer with a whitish head. Farty in the nose with light fruits. A fusty eggy over pasteurized mouth. Pretty basic and totally screwed by the pasteurization. Poor. Score 2.6
Subsequent rating scored 2.5 Score unaltered

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale golden in colour and very well hopped, but pleasantly so with a great balance between fruitiness and bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Morrisons. Pale copper colour, small residual head. Hop aroma, slight floral notes. Taste is of floral hops, slightly sweet. A bitterish finish but short. An OK beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from B&M, poured into a large chalice, golden amber with a white disappating head. Lemon pledge aroma, citrussy flavour. Better than I expected, a nice rounded golden ale that was better than I expected, and a bargain at 99p a bottle.

2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Medium to pale golden pour with substantial lasting head. Sharp and slightly metallic aroma. Slight sweetness to begin leads to light maltiness and a moderate bitter finish. Easy drinking and perfectly pleasant but not particularly characterful of complex.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2012 Bottle from B&M. Bright gold with a generous, well-behaved white foam. Muted lemon and pastry aroma like a lemon curd tart; just-plucked dandelion as it warms. Soft and vaguely coniferous with egg custard, grassy and almond hints. Touch of astringency on the swallow. Drinks like about 50 of the vaguely lemony, oaty-sweet cask Church End GAs I’ve sampled to date. Not as good as the Marynka but still a decent pasteurised (?) GA.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. Pours dark gold with a large head. Aroma is earthy and watered down Ribena. Faint. Taste has faint berries to start and an earthy, bitter finish.
