3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: copper color. Great head, rocky, ivory color, and medium persistency.
Aroma: caramel malts, butter, vanilla, peaches and banana’s smells. Slight yeast’s touch. Light aromatic hoppyness with dried-herbs note like hay. Nuts and almonds.
Flavor: caramels barley start and nutty progress. Ephemeral fruitiness similar to peaches and banana’s reminiscences from yeast. Lasting dry-final from hops, with intensive dried-herb touch like hay and chamomile. Nutty and candy malts aftertaste.
Palate: medium body with slightly rough texture. Medium carbonated.
Nice nutty and dried-herbs (maybe from Gem’s hops) touches in noose and mouth. With own character.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light orange, tiny head. Aroma of lightly roasted malts. Feels nice in the mouth. Simple malty taste, nothing clever, but solid, and with a good long bitter aftertaste. Tasty.

Pale refreshing brew with nice hoppiness. Kind of like a bitter with IPA qualities.

[648-20070921] 500mL. Aroma has a bit of unpleasant skunky hay. Clear, orange amber body with a medium-lasting creamy white head. Toasted cereal flavour still holds hints of skunk. Medium body. Unimpressive in clear bottles.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy honey with frothy head. Faint flowery aroma. Rather faint taste and weak body as well, metallic finish with a rather nice hoppy bitterness. Rather bland overall, though.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (500ml - clear). From Waitrose. Clear bubbly gold, good-sized creamy off-white head. The aroma’s pretty bland, grassy, somewhat dry, a little sweet - but it does have that slight eau-de-skunk, even a touch of metal - and I did take it from the back of the shelf, it was out of the lights. The taste is a touch metallic, there’s dry yeast, slightly sour biscuit malt, grassy, pungent, only slightly skunky hops. Very weak body, a little pungency left on the tongue, the actual taste fades pretty quickly. Somewhere on the "meh" to "neh" scale.

A Mes rate:
Bottle, present from Sim’s mum. Orangey coloured beer in the classy Sheps clear bottle. Slightly floral with a touch of dicetyl. Very dull. Not at all great.
