3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. A pale, yellowish beer topped by a decent white head. Citrusy, almost tea-like nose with pale malts in the back. Lovely citrusy flavor with some pale malts. Maybe a bit one-dimensional, but tasteful and refreshing. Quite dry, and with a citrusy finish where also some bitterness shows up. Sure a decent beer, with good quenching qualities. 090720

Clear golden beer. Avoids the usual trap of British golden ales, as it is not too sweet. Well balanced malt and hops, cereals, citrus, crisp finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (in), pouring a light golden colour with a foamy white head. A nice and healthy fruity hop aroma on a bed of juicy malt. A light mouthfeel, with the hops doing a good job of giving it a fruity flavour while still leaving it very sessionable. Just enough bitterness in the finish to bring you back for another sip. Surprised this hasn’t rated higher.
