2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared by Dutchdrebus. Clear golden color, full sized, a bit soapy, fairly quickly diminishing white head. Don’t get a lot of aroma. Taste has malts, slightly hops, a slight buttery sour hint but I think that might be due to age or light influence. Dry, slightly bitter aftertaste, low to medium body, average carbonation. Nice easy to drink beer, though I dislike that slight sourness. I don’t think that was intended.

#20 - Described as a ’exquisitely lovely golden ale’, Thwaite’s Wainwright is a rather mediocre, golden ale. Easy drinking and just right for lazy days in the sun, offering great value for money.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Poured a very pale golden colour, thin head which soon goes, delicate scent, a bit gassy, very weak on the flavour scale, little aftertaste, refreshing enough on a summers day but not robust enough to have with food, would’nt bother again.

Quite boring, nothing to remeber. Nothing disturbing still, pure and "easy" taste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Amber beer with medium head and some lacing. Aroma of citrus hops and bread. The taste is the same with a touch of bitterness. Decent beer with a bit more citrus hop taste than most bottled golden ales.
