3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden pour, white head. Wheaty nose, taste is wheat and malts.
Appears more like a pilsner than a wheat - but still a good beer.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From 355 ml bottle. Pours a clear yellow-amber with a small but perisiting white head. The aromas are light but clove and cinnamon are the strongest, with some lemon and white bread. Taste is sweet initially with some lemon zest bitterness emerging in the mid-palate. Don’t get much in the way of banana or coriander typical of wheat beers, although there is a little bubblegum hiding away in there. Aqueous mouth feel. Soft finish with a bit of a floral aftertaste. A bit pedestrian really.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 330ml bottle on 31/3/2013. Pours a slightly hazy light golden with a small head. Has a touch of bubblegum and banana on the nose. There’s more banana and bubblegum in the flavour, with a decent lemony tang, and a mild bitterness at the back. The carbonation is true to style. Nothing remarkable but solid enough.
