1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Iím not one for this food pairing Nazism. So had this with turkey burritos just to be contrary. Looks alright; still orange gold with a skim of white. Thatís where the enjoyment ends. Nose of glue, matchbox and raffia. Stale papery wicker flavour with a lick of redeeming creamy malt. Hint of dank. Drinks like a flat tinned Greek or Russian macro lager. Not good.

Bottle from Tesco drunk at home. Clear gold lasting white head. Itís quite a decent tasty golden ale. Some ok hop on the finish. I thought it was fine. Nit too exciting but fine.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from Morrisons, Byker. This is a pale golden beer with a light malty and grassy flavour, toffee notes and a fruity finish. Reminiscent of a bland holiday lager.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Brown 500ml bottle: BBD end of Apr 14. Poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 5th Nov 2013. Iíd cooked roast Chicken, Mediterranean roasted veg, roast Spuds and a spicy Ratatouille: ideal for this beer I thought (and it worked quite well).
Pours a golden yellow, the head a thin white blanket of foam.
Hints of citrus in the nose and taste, these went nicely with the meal and although Iím not usually a fan of golden citrusy brews this seemed to fit the occasion well.
Not a lot going on elsewhere in the brew, apart from the citrus notes it was fairly forgettable to be honest. Tangy enough, but lacks real bite and depth.
OK with Chicken.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle Asda. Poured a crystal clear light amber with a thin white head and low carbonation. The aroma is weak malt and a little hoppy. The palate is weak bitter with a light bodied watery palate.

Amber in colour with a thin white head Aroma of skunky bitter hops. Can taste a nice mix of malt and hops but it lacks body.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled, 500ml from Morrisonís in Banbury. Gold with short lived white head. As it worked out, I did have this whilst eating a chicken salad, frankly it rather ruined the meal. There is a harsh, slightly soured grain flavour delivering a cereal bitterness. Then a metallic tinny note from pasteurisation. A slight sulphery note, eggy, which may or may not be appropriate here. Not good at all unfortunately.
