3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Quite a pale yellow/amber number with a sustained and spitting white head. Hoppy aromas with hints of lemonade and light cereals. Very crisp with a lot in common with a quality lager. Heavy cereals with tiny hints of hops knocking around in the aftermath. It’s very airy and a little tingly. Pretty quaffable. Not amazing but dang drinkable. Perfect a little chilled for some hair of the dog with its cleansing fizziness and lipsmacking bite.

Dark amber ale with small head but good retention. The aroma is fruity with moderate hops noticeable. VEry fruity and some hops, a bit watery. Simple taste. Good for a pub but not to take home to savor. B-
