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 don’t bother.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
50cl bottle from Lidl, stated ABV 3.8%. Straw with a billowing off-white head; aroma of somewhat tired malts and English hops; soft with straightforward caramel malt flavours; and with a dash of hops gives a slight spice to the finish. Not bad for a bargain basement beer.
