3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Two 500ml bottles, best before Oct 2010, reviewed during one of my random tasting sessions in Sept 2010.
Poured into UK pint sleeves: The beer was a pale, dull, matt yellow. It might have had a chill haze because I miss read the label, it said ’larder chilled’ and i thought I saw ’lager chilled’ and had it in the fridge for a day before opening! Anyway the white head was fine and produced some good lacing on both glasses.
The aroma was citrus based, grapefruit seemed to leap out at me, some floral notes too.
The taste was also fairly citrusy, with a hop bitterness arriving late on, the beer was a sweet and sour blend of flavours and nicely balanced.
Easy to drink, taken with a pasta salad.

500ml bottle. Pours dark gold with a large head. Aroma is very faint, has a little citrus. Taste has some citrus, somewhere. Dry, ashy malt finish. Boring.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Tesco. Peppery blonde ale, pleasant enough but lacks depth. Tasty light ale for newcomers to real ale.

[500ml bottle, The Bottle, York] Pours a very clear gold with a decent white head. Aromas of grassy hop and a touch of sweetness. Quite sweet on the palate as well, with some vanilla notes and a flowery finish. Some hops in there as well. I actually quite liked this, although it might get a bit sweet after a while

Clear pale amber beer. Moderate carbonation. Very dry palate. Apologetic hops and a brief glimpse of banana. Way too dry and hard to get down.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Little Wymondley, Stevenage, England.
Cloudy golden colour with small white head.
Sweetish fruity citrusy hops in aroma.
Flavour is quite delicious with bitter fruity hops added with some grassy bitterness. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a clear, light gold with a medium white head. Balanced aroma, with caramel, citrus hops and mild pine. Lightly honey-sweet with pronounced bitterness of orange peel and resinous pine. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Lightly sticky in the finish with lingering, earthy bitters. Not that bad, really.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours with a fluffy white head and looks yellowy-golden. Not much carbonation. Not much in the way of aroma, but the flavor is very good. It’s bitter, its hoppy, its floral, caramely, all-around good. I actually really liked this beer. I dont think its really possible to have a hybrid ale and lager but I get what they are saying.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from who knows where. This smelled rather nice - nicer than I was expecting. Flavour is pretty reasonable - not overly flavoursome, but balanced and refreshing, with a little pepper mixed into the cereal hops.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lager/Blonde ale marriage. I thought this was like a subdued Bitburger Pils(i like Bitburger) ,made with ale yeast . Theres the bready malt like Bitburger. dry lemon ...orange zest . decent hops ..cirusy bitting bitterness. Not that aromatic at all. Wouldn’t buy this again. They’re trying to be inovative but this beer is soulless.
