3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
440 ml can (canned end of Nov 2013) into 20oz pint glass. Lovely, clear golden pour with fluffy white head that remains all the way to the end. Typical fruity English hop aromas, along with sweet wheat and biscuity malt. Lightly hopped, but good balanced malty, wheaty backbone flavours, with a slight lemony citric bitterness, too. Light bodied, it is an English Golden Ale after all, thin feel, but lively carbonation, short lightly bittered finish. A decent quaffer that reminds me of home, and the wonderful beer gardens in the spring & summer.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rating #935 - January 22, 2014 - 440ml Can from sales rep. Clear golden pour with a decent white head, medium retention. Aroma is pear juice, floral. Taste is extremely bland, light in body even for the style. Balance of sweet and bitter is there, but it’s lost in an abyss of nothingness.
