3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sparkling golden ale with a fulsome marshmallowy white head. A good looking beer to be sure. Aromas of fresh, grapefruity hops, lemon zest and some cereal. Flavours of similar citrus freshness and faint ginger. A summery sort of beer with plenty of aroma hopping but not a great deal of bitterness. Put in context, this beer isn’t sold to set the world on fire and it doesn’t. But then, if you have low expectations, like I did, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Bottle@Earl Ferrers, Streatham - golden pour with medium white head. Aroma and taste is light floral and hoppy fruity, pretty subdued, toasty malts, some herbalness prehaps, pretty weak and watery, light bitter finish. All abit meh.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
(Bottle) below average beer. Colour is pale gold with weak white head. Malt and little hop in the aroma. Taste is malt but sort of sour. The sourness goes all the way till the end and lingers in the background. Very distant hoppy bitterness. Finish is week with the sour and bitter still fighting... Medium body, high carbonation. Much more like lager than ale and not very good lager anyways...

The head is medium, body blond. It smells a bit hoppy, flowery. The taste is bit hoppy, bit flowery, mild and boring.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
The bottle description is very misleading. It does look like a beer, but that’s about it. Nothing detectable in the aroma. No flavours to speak of. Insipid, watery and weak mouth feel. A dismal effort.

Monteith's let me down again and I will not be going back. Nothing on their label seemed to exist in the beer. All I got was a pale looking beer that smelt of nothing, was watery with a touch of grass and metal. Not Enjoyable.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light gold colour with tick white head. Mild hop aroma, strong malty flavour. Slight bitter after taste. Is not unpleasant, just a little bland.

This does not live up to its hype. No surprises here. Marks off for marketing itself as anything other than tasteless, cloying slosh.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy tan, thin head, lemon-lime hop aroma, earthy American bitterness (old cascades). Light florals, good balance, slight tartness in the finish.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Not at all what the bottle described. Fairly disappointed with this effort. Just another mediocre pale ale with a fancy name to catch the eye but does not have the beer to back up the description on the label. Really disappointed.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from bottle. Little head. Very light with not much carbonation. Smells hoppy in the glass and very light on the tongue. Short on after taste.
