3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl bottle from Sainsburys. Amber with a lasting, billowing white head; sweet grainy aroma; soft grainy flavour with some light carmael; and a good handful of Hallertau hops giving a long, lightly spiced finish. Very drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Hoppy aroma. Very strong alcohol smell. Taste is hoppy but not much else. Very average to say the least.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nose is wheat, banana, slight marzipan. Taste wheat, marzipan, almonds. Amenable but far too sweet. Not a patch on a proper wheat beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the Cromwell Road Sainsbury’s in London. Pours light copper with a few white bubbles. Aroma is mostly floral, but there could be some grass. Med body. Very sharp carbonation. Flavor is bitter floral/herb. With some roasty malt. Maybe it’s herby. Certainly hard to pin it down, cause the malt is spicy? Tastes pretty good. Finishes on the bitter side.

Hell herber Antrunk, dumpf hopfig. Leider bleibt das Bier dumpf, im Hintergrund bananig hefig. Bitterer Ausklang. Nett. 9/11/9/10/10/9

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Earthy malts, a touch of grassy hop but marred by the boiled sweet and wet cardboard notes so common in English bottled beers. Poor.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear bronze appearance. Slightly spicey with a hoppy background. I was quite surprised that Sainsburys had produced something as pleasant as this then I realised where it was brewed.
Well done Sainsburys.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled 27/06/12. A bronze to gold coloured beer with a wisp of off-white head. A bit fusty cardboardy in the nose. Crisp grassy hops in the mouth. A decent body. A bit spicy lagerish. Average.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml round bottle from Sainsbury’s. This is the distinctive St Peter’s bottle with the wavy lines at the bottom, but round rather than flat. Pale biscuit malt, moderately sweet and juicy with some fatness, so this is like a a fruit impregnated biscuit. Rusty lagerish hops on top - finishing powdery. Not much awareness of the wheat. And no awareness of clove or banana as mentioned on the label. More lager than wheat beer. Quite drinkable. Quite acceptable. A sort of fat, indifferent, sweetish, crude Czech lager.
