2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled 500ml from Tesco, Uttoxeter, Staffs. Gold with very short lived head. There is a fusty, slightly mouldy note on opening which leads into the flavour, thin grainy beer with a vanilla note and a sweet jammy hint, otherwise not much at all. Disappointing.

Medium sweet flavor with doughy malts, white bread, very faint floral notes, biscuits. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish, all white bread, dough, hay.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
27/06/12. Yellow gold with a transient head. Rabbit tray aroma- trust me, I’ve just been out there, faintly drizzled with lime. Some reasonable herbal hop, hay and lemon at first softening into honeyed cornflake, biscuit, oatmeal. No off notes. Not many notes at all come to think of it, although that late creaminess is really quite pleasant. More a lager than golden ale to me (or a golden ale with the hops taken out), but better than the typical macro shite lining the supermarket shelves I suppose.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml clear glass bottle from Tesco. £1. Cheap, but not value for money. Mouldy hay aroma. Tastes of dough, butter, dirty washing up water. Light bodied - quite limp in fact. Fairly unpleasant all round. Not undrinkable, just not very pleasant, and not at all rewarding. Not something you’d be in a hurry to repeat, but you can drink it without grimacing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
50cl bottle from Tesco. This does exactly what it says on the bottle - a simple Golden Ale - not very imaginative, but nothing to complain about either. Pours a straw colour with a billowing white head; citrusy aroma; a slightly citrus flavour with a reasonably heavy biscuity malt body; and some light hops to round it off. Good stuff to drink sitting in the garden, listening to the cricket.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Came in a clear bottle and cost one pound ( not a bad start ).
Poured with a small head and tasted slightly spicy. Nothing really going for it apart from the cheap price tag.
