Cloudy to pale clear golden pour. A slightly sour smell that picks back up in the trailing taste. Not my favourite but a decent beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brown 500ml bottle, best before 10th Feb 2011, drank and reviewed 24th Jan 2011. The rear label claims it can be used as a light, thirst quenching alternative to a lager or you can liberate the complex flavours of an ale, depending on what you want, just serve it at different temps! I’m reviewing a cold one, so it should lean towards a lager!
Poured into a straight sided UK pint sleeve. The beer in certainly on the blonde side, light amber more than a strawberry or golden blonde, but blonde it is. The thin white head became a wisp and collar very quickly, a pity.
The initial smell was of a honey sweetness and treacle like malty molasses. That all sounds overly sweet, but wasn’t really sickly, just huge hints of those aromas. To be fair, the smell changed as the beer warmed, becoming less sweet and more fruity and Ale like.
The smell sweetness turned semi-sweet with no hop feel what so ever, the malts being mild in flavour but giving the sweetness. I prefer sweeter beers, but I couldn’t take to this for some reason.
Strange beer, not a huge disappointment, but not what I was expecting. It didn’t turn into an ’Complex Ale’ as it warmed in the glass either. A crossdresser of a beer, not in my eyes, just a beer that doesn’t know what it is!

Bottle from Waitrose, Berkhamsted. Colour is clear gold, white foamy head. Nose is cereal grain, barley sugar sweets, bit of light caramel. Taste is cereal grain, touch of sourish bitterness, and grassy hay. Refreshing Summer beer which is light bodied. Somewhere between a lager and a golden ale.
