2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Orange tinted gold, white head. Nose is malt, sweet notes with corn and citrus hints. Taste begins pretty much the same as the aroma, but the finish has a nice but weak floral hoppy bitterness. Thin body, but for the ABV, it’s to be expected. Tad too weak though.

(Bottle, 0.5 l, 20110205) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had toffee, fruitiness and hops. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, fruitiness, grain, toffee and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. Not a bad beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Poured with a fluffy one finger white head with good retention leaving a fair consistency lace on a lively golden amber-copper body. It’s an English golden citrus hop all-rounder. Slightly rindy with a drop of sweetness and bready, biscuity malt at the back. Crisp-ish & firm on the palate. Light to medium body, smooth & lightly spritzy mouthfeel with a soft bitterness in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small, dense yellowish head over clear old-golden beer. Rather sweetish, caramelly nose, diluted corn syrup. Bitter, lovely floral UK hops dominating, yielding flavours as from fine raw pipetobacco or green tea. Excellent, totally at odds with the near non-existent, dull nose. Bitter green grapes, finish has some fleeting wild bitter honey. Light bodied, but not watery, totally in accordance with the ABV, and quite refreshing. Pleasing, refreshing light ale. Truly sorry about that absence of any decent nose.

Pours clear golden colour. Nice hoppy aroma, floral, a hint of grass. Proper, bitterish mouthfeel. Notes of of fruits, honey, citrus and caramel. A good one. Refreshing.

Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Pours clear, rich gold with a small, white head. Sweet dough aroma. Medium sweet flavor, some toasty dough, light grain, light fruits, very mild bitterness. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet, malty finish, subtle citrus fruits, dough, light grains. Very easy-drinking beer. I like it.
