Dissapointing. Aroma thin appearance not bad. Pale golden. Taste bitter with malt kick on palate. Overall just average. Nothing special

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A mid amber coloured beer with a frothy but weak white head. A light, pithy orangey citrus fruit aroma with a hint of pale, biscuity malt. Dry mouthfeel. The taste starts with a mild bitterness, pithy orange and lemon citrus fruit plus a hint of grassiness. This is underpinned by a smooth biscuity malt flavour. The finish is dry and malty.

50cl bottle from Morrisons, Bracknell. An orangey amber pour with a thin white head; musty grain aroma with a touch of citrus; grainy body with an orangey caramel taste; and a pleasant citrus bitterness to finish. Not very Christmassy, but actually pretty good.

Bottled 22/07/14. A brown beer with a white bubbly head. Bitter oranges in the nose when you have a good sniff. Citrus in the mouth too. Not getting any festive notes. Itís decent although after the first glug I didnít think it was going to be.
