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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Decent pale ale with a good hoppy character. A slightly touch of diacetyl suits it well. Quite drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
50 cl bottle. Dark golden color. Nice off-white head. Fruity, floral, sweet malt/caramell. Banana in aftertaste. Dry bitterness, a bit syntethic. A strange beer, but not bad.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Orange-golden crispy clear colour. White head with a small tan. Creamy. Aroma brings a slight feel from hops, flower, malt and grass. Same goes with the flavor. A very small hint of biterness in the end.
