Leighton (9830) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2012
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Pours perfectly clear gold with a fine, white foam head. Mellow biscuity malt nose, some sweet hay. 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. It is a very basic, sweet golden ale. Easy drinking, pleasant.

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.

500 ml Bottle served cold in a shaker. A bit of lemon lime jelly aroma, and also in the flavour. Tastes a bit like it’s been designed by a committee to meet all the expecations of a Golden Ale. So, not bad, but generic, and lacking in individuality. Would buy the other two beers in this Tesco range again (Bitter and IPA), but not this one.

I was worried about trying this beer bearing in mind where it comes from. However, its a simple enough golden ale. The arome is a lot more critusy than you might expect but the after taste is slightly watery. All in all I’d say better than expected but by no means a classic.

Cheap and basic....Nothing bad about it but quite bland and unexceptional. Works as pre-pub bottle

berkshirejohn (4196) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2012
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.

Bottled 29/03/13. An orange headless beer. Sticky fruity marmalade in the aroma together with cardboard. Some citrussy hopping in the mouth with more cardboard and some fust. A bit of spicy rubber late on. Bog standard.
