3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Lidl, Wrekenton, Gateshead. Pale golden coloured with sweet toffee and fruity citrus notes followed by a woody bitter and almond finish. Not bad, especially for the low ABV.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml clear bottle, filtered, from Lidl for £1. Whiff of light struck hops when poured. That poo smell does linger for a while. The beer is very basic. Quite thin and dry with powdery hops. You can drink it, and itís cheap. But it tastes like cheap, cardboardy beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bought April 2015 from Lidl, Langley Moor, Co. Durham. 500 ml bottle, 99p, canít argue with the price.
Pour very clear, golden appearance with white head that was quick to dissipate. Light, slightly sweet aroma. First hits the palate with distinct bitterness that gives way to a slightly sweet aftertaste in keeping with the aroma. Smooth, slightly thick texture.
Nothing special but a decent enough summer ale.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A pale golden yellow coloured beer with a weak white head. A light hoppy aroma, some citrus fruit, then a faint biscuity malt aroma. Dry mouthfeel. A tart hop taste to start, pithy citrus fruit, then a dry biscuity malt flavour. A well balanced bitter finish.

Bottle ( Clear ) Golden with a small head. Slightly fruity with a sharp bitter edge. Nothing going for it at all. No doubt it might be rolled out for the 2014 World Cup. Please donít bother.
