Botella. Clear golden amber with a medium creamy bubbly off-white head leaving a good sticky lacing. Fruity and malty aroma with some bitter hops. Good mouthfeel. Mild fruity flavour with toasted malt, some caramel, mild bitter hops and grass. Dry mild bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of fresh, leafy hops, some decent malt underpinning, amber, with a small off-white head. Flavour has a malty start, backed up nicely with a bitter hops infusion. Balanced, light bodied, a dry finish, pleasing mouthfeel. A very good session ale. Thanks to My neighbor Jean’s sister Dorothy. A very nice treat.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not bad, but too many flavours in there for me. Not enough hops and too much fruit.

Yellow golden and fluffy indeed. Some frutiness and caramel as usual from Thwaites. I got oranges and apples in there. Nice hoppiness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A lightly yellowed golden coloured ale with a fine yet fluffy white head. Fairly strong citric hop aromas and a caramel malt quality. The flavours are again rather hoppy, but this time they’re more spicy in character with some sweet malts on the front of the tongue. A long and clean bitter finish that is often grassy. Perhaps a bit sugary sweet at times but highly drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hoppier than expected, quite a caramel sweet taste to it. A bit light on the finish, overall not bad but not spectacular

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, bought @ my local flower shop(?). Pours a light golden with a small creamy white head. A thin film stays throughout the drinking experience. Aroma is mildly hoppy with apples, grass and slight pine. A little pilsner malts behind it. Perhaps a little thin on the ground. Flavour has only slight malt base behind a heavy dryness with good hop flavours.
