2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig. Note - this was drink right after a rather peculiar Kvass, so I was probably still in a bad mood. The pour’s light gold, no head. Ugly. The nose is peas, sugar, some angel food cake. The taste is weak vegetable water, light sugar. Overall, a sad effort.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Chriso’s pre-GBBF Shindig 2012. A toasted malt, grain & citric lemon dominated profile. An OK sweet/sour balance going on. Some buttery, caramel sweetness comes through on occasions. Light to medium body, medium carbonation finishing with a short to medium length, gently hoppy finish. A simple, rounded golden ale; quite harmless but has an easygoing drinkability to it.
