3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I was surprised by this one. I just chose randomly something from the local shop and expected it to be some tasteless mass product with fancy label for young dudes (don’t ask why I chose this one then). Well I was wrong, this is really tasty and fruity with lots of hoppy flavours. Tasty indeed for such a mild beer. I will most certainly go buy some more of this stuff from the shop 100m from my flat.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pastel, yellow gold, misty, with fine and scarce carbonation and a sloppy, messy white foam atop. Big, plump, citrus fruit nose hinting at navel and blood orange, orange marmalade and desert lime with just a hint of toasted, sweet malt. Plenty of pinewood, plenty of peppery spice and plenty of fruit on the palate. Nice, lasting bitterness with a dry finish. Firm feel yet slightly oily and resinous. Malt is grainy and cereal-like with light sweetness aiding the juicy citrus. Only fault, if you can call it that, is a touch of diacetyl that stands out but doesn’t hinder too much. Body is light but there is enough presence. Very refreshing and sessionable. Solid!! (50cL, BB 30/09/15, Luckies Liquor, East Vic. Park)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from B&M. Pours golden yellow with thin white head. Arpoma has lots going on, citrus, floral, herbal, grassy, straw and mild malt. Taste is initially quite sweet and them medium to strong lingering bitterness and quite dry. A brilliant ale with lots of taste especially as it is rather low in strength. Definitely getting more of this!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A fairly clear golden color with a little head that leaves plenty of lacing on the sides. A noticeably hoppy aroma displays citrus fruitiness and strong grassiness with some balancing pale maltiness. Taste is maltier, as is typical in British ales. Hoppiness is more pronounced than in pale British ales usually but still subdued when compared to American pale ales, for example. Grainy, light sweet pale maltiness features initially, later more bitter and dry with grassy elements rising. The palate is smooth and nearly medium-bodied, a good achievement for a beer this mild. Very drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear deep golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of passion fruit, peach, subtle orange, some grass and floral hops. Taste of fresh floral hops, passion fruit, some straw and orange. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, floral bitterness in the finish. A very pleasant golden ale, not exciting but very sessionable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From Walsgrave B&M. Gold without visible fizz beneath a loose foamy top. Understated mildly Californian scent suggesting peach, pine and Turkish Delight. Mellow soapy orange, peach and floral aspects over a lean husky base. Lingering slightly astringent bitterness with monkey nut hints; maybe spearmint, lavender, lychee. Decent but doesn’t sing anything like the stupendous and narcotic Citra.
