3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle (best before 28 July 2012) poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 9th May 2012.
Light to mid brown in body colour, clear and clean: on top an off-white crown of foaming bubbles.
Good malty nose and taste: molasses and malt biscuits stuck together by a mildly hop presence.
Almost as good as the cask version: a fine blend of flavours and very, very drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tired. And drinking a boring beer to boot. Deep amber with an ok sized foamy white cap. Dull grains and a light grass feature, decent fruit on the slightest of the tropical side, that’s about it for aroma. The taste is plain as well with a notable spice and dryness, grains, a weak fruit, light toast. Short finish. Meh meh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml brown bottle. Gold pour, clear, big white cap, light lacing. Light caramel nose. Taste has mild grainy malts, caramel, light grassy and citrusy orange peel-ish hops. Light body with average carbonation. Overall a pleasant and drinkable brew with decent hops notes for the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that retains quite well and reveals some thin lacing on the glass. Aromas of caramel, light fruit and floral hops accompany this ale. Taste is malty sweet at first with some fruit and builds to a pleasant citrus hop bitterness. Body is quite full considering the low ABV and carbonation is decent. Overall, an enjoyable bitter.

Light amber with a thick soft stickly lasting white head. Smell of caramel malt, floral and citrus. Smooth rich creamy body. Taste of orange peel, citrus, sweet caramel with a bitter hop finish. Very nice character and drinkable. Some chocolate.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smells of floral hops and malt
Copper with a light wee head
Light bitter and sweet which is nicely balanced, light body, with a thin and oily texture. Lightly fizzy.
As it says on the bottle - a session beer. Good in the afternoon on the terrasse watching into a wee bay in Cornwall. Other than that just another generic ale.

Köpt på Waitrose i Petersfield. En ganska ordinär bitter, åtminstone på flaska.
