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.

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.

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.

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.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. A golden beer with no head. The aroma is sweet with a cloying fruity note, while the flavor is sweet and very fizzy due to overcarbonation, with light notes of malt and a lightly bitter finish. Probably better if sampled in South African, than in London.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Uniform white cover tops the clear, sparkling golden brew. Rather vegetal, citrusy and sour nose that does not feel too coherent, but remains better than the sparkling mineral water stuff that the palate represents. It jumps at you and covers most of the taste in a sour fashion. I dislike Perrier by the way. Minimal lemony finish. Poor.
