McTapps (6044) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle from Tesco in Eastbourne. Pours out in a deep golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of mild hops and straw with some barley hints. Taste of hops, straw, mild flowers, mild nuts, barley and light malt. Easy drinkable and refreshing, yet nothing special.

A store nearby sells this for £1.39 per bottle and in recent weeks my girlfriend and I have had quite a few bottles of this. A great session ale, nothing to blow you away but a very refreshing golden ale with a clean bitterness to it and very quaffable indeed. Slightly biscuity malt profile along with medium bitter grassy hops and a mildly dry finish. Yum!
