2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
ivory white head that disappears quite quick, slight foam head and some lacing. straw-yellow orange colour. has a faint candylike vanilla smell right after opening but fades quickly, grass, malt, yeast and some sweetness. can’t pick up anything in the taste really, the only thing is a dry bitterness followed by a long bitter aftertaste. medium carbonation and a rather thin body. nope, this doesn’t do it for me. 33 cl / lot 360 / best before 10-2014

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from The Wine Cellars, Lutterworth. Lager gold with a Gillette-dense foam falling to a collar. Sweet, vanilla pod, strawberries and custard aroma with hints of AJ and cardamom. Soft, moussey and perfumed with a spicy, estery sweetness suggesting cinnamon sprinkled on bananas on toast, a countering herbal hop bite and subtle smoked almond note to finish. Light, complex, unexpectedly delicious stuff.
