2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled 31/08/13. An amber coloured beer with no head. Initially sweet with caramel and toffee notes. However a reasonable citrus note does come through a bit later. Not bad apart from the sickly sweet nose and actually tastes bigger than 2.8%

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not as bad as I thought it would be, probably because the pub kept it well. Mid-brown, looks and tastes (!) like Greene King IPA with a slightly bubble gum flavour to start off with followed by well, not a lot really. There is some butter but you expect that from GK. Finish is virtually instant. These low gravity beers offer the brewer the opportunity to brew an ale with the emphasis on the hops, an opportunity that Greene King have spurned. Good concept, lousy execution.

1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Copper colour with a rapidly disappearing head. The initial skunky aroma settled down to a slightly toasty, sweet syrupy aroma. Tasted very watery with virtually no flavour at all.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
As a such a low alcohol beer, not actually that bad. But forgetting that, pretty dull tasteless beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[500ml bottle, gift from Maureen & Dave - cheers!] I hadnít yet tried any of the new 2.8% ales bought out since the tax changes, and thought it was a bit of a shame that the first one I got to try was from GK. I shared it with my brother who (without knowing what he was drinking) said with some distaste "this taste a bit Greene Kingish". And yes, it does have some of their typical caramel and toffee notes in it. But it also has some soft and pleasant hops - lemon, orange and peach. Itís easy drinking, but itís quite pleasant and well balanced and thereís a decent amount of flavour for the strength, A surprisingly good effort from GK - well done!

28/04/12 - Bottle from Tesco Extra, a light one, a bit on the thin side. Not bad for low ABV.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle. Clear orangey dark amber colour, foamy white head that diminishes leaving some lacing, and a malty mash aroma. Taste is malt and grain, sweetish toffee, with a slight bitterness and a dry finish. Light watery body and medium carbonation. OK considering the low strength.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 500ml. -Clear amber coloured, small off-white head, slight herbal and butterscotch nose. Mild bitter hoppy, passion fruit and butterscotch taste with watery finish. Dryish finish. Has potential, especially with so small alcohol content.
