4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2012 I had to re-rate this beer. The first time I had it, it was completely different to what I had expected and I think I under-rated it because of this. This is a really good beer. Beautful aroma of apricot hops. A really sharp clean feel on this beer with a dry, only slightly bitter, finish. The lightish body and higher carboantion make it incredibly refreshing. I am really impressed with this beer, and despite its fruity aroma it is not overly sweet at all and easily sessionable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled, 330ml from Beermerchants in Kent. Gold with white head. There was only a slight aroma on opening and then there was only a slight taste on drinking, the beer was incredibly bland and thin. No off flavours but just very little to get the flavour buds going. More a pale Aussie lager, pretty boring unfortunately.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
My favourite beer hands down.
Florally/fruity aroma and taste.
This rating is for out of the tap, yet out of the bottle would only be a point behind. Very consistent.
Only con is that I donít think I could drink too many of these in a sitting sue to strong flavour.

Cloudy apple juice colour. Poured from tap. Light beer though not watery, easy drinking but still provides a decent palate

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice and cloudy with a smooth finish on the palate...lovely citrus tones. Best served really cold. Very good on tap but equally consistent in the bottle

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
330ml bottle. Iíve tried different batches from different suppliers and still donít get this. Pours pale orange amber but with minimal carbonation and a rapidly disappearing head. Pleasant hoppy, grassy nose with some malt. Orange and banana hints on palate with a slightly sulphuric sort of mid-palate and little flavour overall. I was expecting much more.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Consumed from the bottle, so I canít comment on the pour. The aroma has grapefruit and orange hops predominant. Nicely hoppy up front, almost more APA in style than golden ale, with plenty of citrus and a little spice. There is a little white bread malt in the mid-palate, with a clean hoppy finish. A nice sessionable ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a lovely session beer, not too demanding on the palate or liver. Grassy hops, pleasant bitterness and aroma that doesnít overpromise. Slightly cloudy, like a true unpasteurised beer should be

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pint of keg. Not awful but entirely tedious. Tastes similar to a homebrew lager. Maybe suffers from travel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: grain malts, light citrus, floral hops. Appearance: slightly hazy gold, medium, creamy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters continue, some citrus, acidic, light grass and floral notes again. Overall: nice Golden Ale, almost a bit too much trying to be an APA. Pint at the Old Red Cow, Smithfield.
