2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
340ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden with no head. Aroma is skunky and some grassy hops. A bit buttery to start then a hint of lemon. Nice hop bite on the finish. Boring.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Drinks World, Harborne, Birmingham. Bad smell - like wet rubbish, or flowers on the turn. Flavour is something approaching nice, but doesn’t quite make it. Sunshiny, weak pineapple. Pale taste. Not quite.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
340ml bottle from Bacchanalia, Cambridge. Poured hazy amber with a trace of white head, heavy sediment and light carbonation; sweet, grainy aroma; smooth with a malty flavour and a soapy texture; the finish is crisp and biscuity, with perhaps a hint of wet cardboard about it. THis is much less impressive than the West Coast Ale.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
2nd August 2008. Slightly cloudy amber beer. Very mild hops and not much else. Okay ice cold on a hot day. At least one beer from this brewery is drinkable!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled, 340ml, from Beers of Europe. Pale gold with white head. After the Durban Pale Ale hopes were high, but this is a touch disappointing. Thin hoppy note and somewhat sweet, it could do with a little more bite. Chivvies itself up with a dry close to improve the score.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours hazy golden with small white head. Aroma is fruity, bready malt and a touch of diacetyl (not good). Flavour is sweet, fruity, honey, with low bitterness. Insufficiently hopped and poorly balanced.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bit unclear golden with a medium short white head. Aroma of hops and some bitterness, slightly metallic. Soft bitter hoppy flavour with some malt and a little sweetness. Bit dry finish. Rather boring.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. [thank you, faroeviking]
Pours pale golden with a medium, frothy, white head. Aroma has a little metal, maltiness, some weak grassy hops. High carbonation, a bit thin. Flavour is mild, a touch of metal, weak malty sweetness and practically no hops.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Beers Of Europe. A pleasant enough pale ale. Some soft fruit with faint citric notes. Suggestion of wheat. Quite watery, but refreshing. Lack of impact all round, but reasonably pleasant.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Hazy orange gold with no head. Aromas are fruity and yeasty with resinous honey. Flavours are soft, sweet biscuit malts with citrus. Quite dry on the finish. Quite clean but lacks depth.
