2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Oddbins NHG, at home, 05/02/14.
Lightly hazed pale golden blonde with a moderate white crown of bubbledom that stays for the show.
Nose is green apples, straw, light citrus, toasty malt ring.
Taste is a little thin, orchard fruit, straw, faint tangerine, light bread dough.
Medium bodied but a little watery, fine carbonation, grassy close with very subtle bitterness.
Not unpleasant just a little boring and lacking in flavour.
