3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On-tap at PP C’Bad. Pours a clear, light yellow color with a thin, crisp white head, some spider web lace. Smells crisp and malty. Tastes sweet, crisp, and malty. There is a general sweetness as well, cream? I don’t know. Thin body, coats the mouth, crisp carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A little unambitious, but I guess even micros have to woo the swillers. This was a bit too much like a lager for me, not enough of that English body that keeps people coming back to Boddington’s.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at PPCB. A clean yellow pour. Almost no nose but clean as a whistle. While it has a bit of maltiness it doesn’t have the adjunct taste. It has the lightest of bitters as well. Solid palate and carbonation. As clean as pin and very refreshing excellent drinker.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I guess this was Pizza Port’s attempt to satisfy the Miller light drinkers. Very average, only good thing was you could drink this all day, don’t know wht you would want to.

I was very disappointed with this beer, it had absolutely no distinctions from any other beer.. i am not really a fan of dry, hop finishing beers, so it wasn’t really my type. Nothing made this one stand out for me.
