3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gold coloured with a big attractive head. Weakish aromas of malt, honey and a touch of citrus. Flavours of citrus, caramel malt, bread and a nice spicy/bitter finish. An ale in my mind and a very good one.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2013 650ml bottle. Poured an uninviting cloudy brown with a one-finger off-white foamy head that diminished quickly but gave good soap-ring-like lacing. Light to moderate carbonation with small bubbles forming trails. Subtle aroma of sweet malt, a trace of hops, very slight roasted grain and maybe a hint of spice and citrus. Taste initially of sweetish malt followed by a citrus bitterness/sourness and a high acid hops on the back palate. Light to medium body. Long slightly acidic and bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy straw yellow color, half finger of bright white head. Falls to a thick collar. Good soapy lacing on sides.
Spicy nose with citrus and stone fruit. Touches of pepper with slight hints of the malt backbone.
Taste is more towards the malt side. Bread and caramel, then citrus and some spice.
Medium bodied, prickly carbonation. Spicy, citrus and dry, stale bread finish with hints of honey.
Pretty decent actually

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle. recent import by Shelton Brothers. opaque dull amber body with a small white head, some lacing. underfermented raw wort nose of Crackliní Oat Bran cereal and dry dog food and creamed wheat and crystal malt, so bad that the enjoyable bright citrus and tropical fruit hops canít save it. goopy, sludgy, thick and chewy body with a lot of unfermented sugar; add strongly bitter high acid hop and itís very stew-like and raw tasting. if they could ferment this out and maybe filter it a little, I can see where it could be and it would be beautiful. maybe this batch is a dud though, I canít imagine Shelton Brother bringing this in if this is the intended smell, flavor and mouthfeel.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Iím not sure if this would be something to drink all night or not. Itís a bit of a tease in that it definitely has more character than mainstream slosh, but maybe not enough to stop me wishing for something a bit more challenging after the first bottle. The claim that it straddles the Ale/Lager divide is bollocks. Itís a refreshing lager that goes down well after a dayís work, treat it as such and you wonít be disappointed.

Bottled. A golden beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of fruits,malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of lemons, hops, malt, and caramel, leading to a bitter finish. Nice, but not Bohemian.

650ml bottle. Pours a strong sunshine orange colour with an even layer of white fam. Looks pretty good in the glass. Malty aroma is pleasing as is the flavour. This is a good session beer.
