50ml brown glass bottle from Sainsbury - part of a 3 for £5 deal. Toffee, thin malt leading into a tannic finish. A dusting of hops. Drinkable, and without significant flaws, but not interesting or particularly tasty. OK.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lively, clear golden beer with a thick frothy head. Caramel and citrus zest scent. Flavour is a touch more hearty. Bitter hop but a bit of an earthy flavour there as well. Sadly it doesn’t follow this up with much so it ends up being quite dry and bitter and not entirely satisfying.
