3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Clear golden / orange color. Good thin off-white head, leaves decent lace. Impressive hoppy aroma - lemongrass, some citrus, light floral. Good light caramel malt, some honey, little toastiness. Good mix of bitter and sweetness in the finish. Light body, smooth light carbonation, very drinkable. More dry texture. This is a very tasty light ale - especially now since it just hit the shelves. This probably wouldn’t age well, especially with these clear glass bottles

500ml bottle from Morrisons, Partick. Pours clear pale gold with a short-lived white head. Aromas are light bread, honey sweet, very light citrus. Taste is sweet too. Very little of the galaxy hop in evidence. Thin texture, finishes sweet. Not great.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale golden pour with a thin white head. The nose is softly spicy and refreshing. A little bit of citrus and some nice clean malt. A touch of spicy hoppiness and a little bit of lingering fruit. A pretty simple, refreshing brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Big burst of skunk when opened, though balanced a bit with caramel malt and citrus, grass hop. Clear amber, low bubbly head. Nicely fruity andnhoppy, with light caramel and good bready malts. No skunk here. Decent, but they must lose the clear bottles.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. A golden coloured beer which pours pretty much with no head. Very juicy zesty hops in the aroma with pink grapefruit. Just a touch of cardboard. It’s the same in the mouth. Again zesty and hoppy. A bit of peach now. Nice for sure.

Has a fine pale character in a clear golden ale. Lots of tropical aroma and taste to match.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent orange with thin white head that dissipates into lacing fairly quickly. Smells of light caramel with some doughiness and funkiness. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Okay for what it is.

The miracle finally happened: 2 years after opening Hinckley Tesco have new beer on the shelves, including several I’ve not tried. Bottle at The Penguin. Pale gold corkscrewing with fizz. High Gillette head. Buttered plastic, hint of wheat and lime in the aroma. Not unpleasantly buttered flavour; pastry, corn, OK some JHB Fairy Liquid notes as it warms. Light astringent finish. Pleasant cornflake afters, Rich Tea. Honey? Better than expected.
