1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, from Rhythm & Booze, Brigg. Gold, thin short lived white head and low condition. Vague tinny fruitiness bordering on citric in the nose, quite chalky bitter in the mouth with some background raw graininess and a slight hint of esters, brief dry finish. Still worthless shite even at 40 pence a bottle.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pack of 4 x 25cl bottles from Tesco at a stated ABV of 5.5%. Having read the other recent reviews, I agree that picking this up in Tesco was the wrong thing to do - even though it was the only beer there I hadn’t tried. Slightly disconcerting aroma of mass-produced cider; the texture of a damp flannel; over sweet, and with some stale hops and an alcoholic burn to finish. Some resemblance to Palm, but it very much the poor cousin.

Multi-pack from Tesco? Check. Only thing I hadn’t tried? Check. Deeply regret the experience? Check, check and fucking check. I can’t really add to DruncanVesey’s post as it’s spot on.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Blond and quite lively upon pouring. Left some lacing. Medium body with a slight ritternet. A reasonable example of this style.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle in a six pack from Tesco, Worcester Warndon Villages Pours mid golden with a white bubbly head which is very small and disappears quickly. This tastes fine but like a more watered down version of a belgian beer, taste is slightly metallic, otherwise it’s fine if a bit commercial.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Also a six pack in Tesco, and also because it was the last thing I hadn’t tried there. Average at best and that’s being a bit kind. I felt a bit cheated, bloody tesco. Watery, not offensive but certainly average, at best.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
6pack basketed in Tesco, purely because it was the only beer in the shop I hadn’t tried. Wish I’d left it there. Bilious,industrial cider-like aroma with a trace of banana. Papery grain, stale apple juice and overwhelming off-notes of cardboard. Aggressively fizzy with a sweetener-like bitterness and a wheaty aftertaste. Definitely one to offload on the guests. The ones I don’t like.
