2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Cheers in Mumbles.
Appearance - golden with a decent head.
Nose - it just smells like a malt bag. Maybe a hint of citrus.
Taste - slightly more going on in the taste but not much.
Palate - light bodied with a creamy texture and a dry finish.
Overall - just too grainy, like the other beers I’ve had by them.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, from Tesco. Faintly hazy gold, thin shortlived white head and gentle condition. Pleasant but muted orange citrus and a gentle maltiness in the nose. Soft in the mouth with an initial slightly honeyed malty sweetness and a spicy citrus hop resin note. Low chalkiness in the finish before the citrus hop note returns and lingers into the end.

Fairly pleasurable ’middle of the road’ pale ale. Light straw colour in appearance. Didnt taste as strong as the 5% ABV would suggest. Neither hops or malt jumped out at me. Would be a good induction ale for lager drinkers!
