2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
No doubt whatsoever that sometimes the mood fits. This average beer is just right for now. Creamy white head and a smooth swallow with a skim of hops. Refreshing and not that tasty.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A tasty ale that just lacks a little on the fringe qualities. That is, it’s a bit thin in the finish, doesn’t smell of anything much, and the mouthfeel is a bit dull. Nevertheless, the flavour is good and it could well develop into something special with time - both the beer and the brewer.
