3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Really nice, softly textured bitter. Lovey fresh hops, a bit tangy, citric, with a definite bitterness, Lots of flavour for a beer with only 4% alcohol. Smooth and uncomplicated, but somehow, really works for me.

Not bad as far as bitters go. It’s got some malt and various citrus like fruits in the taste, just a shame it’s a bit thin and watery. Definitely drinkable but nothing to get excited about.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy amber colour with a very thin white ring around the glass. Aroma malty, strong(but not overpowering) caramel, fruity, and sweet. Flavour is caramel, mild bitterness, zesty citrus, and a light malty sweetness giving this a great balance. Low carbonation as expected per the style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: Clear copper/amber with white finger thick head.
Aroma: Biscuity malt, floral and slightly fruity.
Taste: Low sweetness, medium bitterness and sourness. Pepper/coriander, biscuit, floral, fruity and note of caramel.
Palate: Fairly thick texture, light/medium body, average/prickly carbonation, malty backbone is evident in the abrupt bitter finish alongside a slight citrus tartness.
Comments: Easy to drink and enjoyable. It is what it is a ’session beer’ so on that basis is appealing and worth having again. Left a glass lace.
