33cl bottle from Marks & Spencer, Camberley. A hazy pale amber pour with a thick white head; yeasty aroma; and a crisp light citrus taste with a grainy body; and a smooth creamy finish, with a lingering grapefruit bitterness. A satisfying and substantial pale ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, one of a load I picked up at M&S for around £1.20 a pop! Very hazy, golden orange. Foamy, messy, sticky, off white head. Looks good. Nose has cracker malts. Dry, and lightly toasty. Orange jelly. Hint of lemon and lime. Light, soft toffee. Taste is light, bright bitter. Some hop oiliness. Fresh mouthfeel. More bitterness on the finish, drying out a little along the way. Nice one.

Smell of pilsner, floral notes. Not so good. Taste is a little better, mostly malt bit some lager like hops. Whoopee.
