Pours clear golden color with a small head. Grain and grass, some cardboard notes and hints of honey. Grassy, grainy and pale malty flavor, faint honey and wooden notes. Slick, thin, straightforward, dull, quite strong carbonation. Not very pleasant.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden ochre with lots of sparkling, huge frothy head is medium long and off-white. Grainy mild aroma, grass, bit caramel. Medium body, round, carbonation works, semidry, long grainy finish has also bit fruit notes. Bit one-sided but flavors not bad, just lacks nuances.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 04/2016
Lots of foaming and yeast(?) particles when pouring – unusual for a British beer. Aroma has peaches, biscuits and funky yeast. Also some hay and minerals. So far this has quite a strong Belgian feeling. Lots of CO2 and foam on palate – makes this hard to drink. Flavour has minerals, grainy tones, some yeast and hints of citrus. At the beginning this feels rather straightforward. And at the middle of the glass this has gained rather strong and unpleasant herbal bitterness. A bit unusual for a Bitter, more like a golden ale. Not the most typical golden ale either, though. And not a beer for me; drinking this started well but I finally ended up with drain pour.
