2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
50cl bottle (4,2% ABV) from Varnaveien mineralvann. Pours deep golden with a white head. Aroma is lightly malty with caramel, fruits and some hops. Hint of green apples too. A bit weak in flavour, almost reminds me of flavourful lager. Sweet and grainy with notes of caramel and a pretty light bitterness in the finish. Fairly easy to drink, but quite boring.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at the Free Press, Cambridge. Dark gold, fairly clear. Quite a bit of lacing. Aroma is sulphur, hickory smoke and butterscotch. It’s not off - the condition is in fact excellent - but it’s... odd somehow. Taste has a slight malty sweetness but the buttery astringency rears its head again for the finish. Not for me.

Rather bland tasting bitter, would expect more from a bottled beer, this is just brown beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
0.568 tap. Delicate hazy amber color and a small but persistent, white head. Malty aroma of delicate yeasts and some flowers. Taste is subtle, caramel, malty, buttery - standard. Light body, slick texture, and an entirely flat carbonation. Finish is short and meager. Overall a very mediocre ale.

Cask at The City Inn, Truro. A clear pale amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of orange, caramel, grain, subtle biscuit, some apple and floral hops. Taste is the same of grain, biscuit, orange, caramel, apple but only subtle floral hops. Light bodied and a soft carbonation. A bittersweet grainy finish. Drinkable but quite a sweet bitter. Ok.
