3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle: BBE 08/2015. Poured into a UK pint sleeve at home during 03/2015. Pale amber/golden body with a thin white topping. Nose and taste both leaning towards a caramel/toffee flavour, the hops arriving later in the taste to give a mild bitter finish. Decent enough blend, but lacked a real bite or depth of flavour.

wasn’t expecting much from this after reading the bottle, but turned out to be a pleasant refreshing light bitter, much like a golden ale, smooth and very drinkable

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Booth’s, Ilkley. Clear bronze with a slim disc of froth. Vegetal, wholemeal aroma with the squashy glace cherry notes of a super strength lager. Tastes (I would imagine) of extruded rabbit food with incidental hints of glace cherry, sultana and copper pipe. Dismal.
