2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Overly sweet, especially for what's described on the label as "light...soft...crisp." The invert sugar adjunct is very noticeable. There's a little spiciness to help combat the treacle sweetness but no head to suggest the carbonic acid bite that would provide greater balance. I can't imagine having more than one of these.

Hazy amber body. Light carbonation. No head or lacing. Dull aroma of grain, metal and honey. Sweet flavour with a hint of lemon. Tastes like a sub par home brew. Thin body with a watery texture. Soft carbonation. Bland, bland, bland...

Bottle that Dad shared with me - cheers. Clear copper with a moderate off-white head. Rather pleasant aroma of mixed berries. A reasonably rich mouthfeel is ruined somewhat by an artificial fizz that doesnít suit the style. Some berries in the taste too, along with lots of caramel and a balancing twist of lemon. Unfortunately a metallic tang comes through in the finish- yet another decent UK bitter thatís been ruined by pasteurization. Would like to try in decent nick on cask.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle): Pours a clear copper colour, medium white head. Fruity aroma coupled with some citrus zing and a little maltiness. Really nice fruit dominated flavour, biscuit and hop notes coming through too. Very, very drinkable. I like this on cask too but the bottle surpasses it in my opinion.
