2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled, 500ml from Stans Nisa, Llangollen, Wales. Orange amber with white head. Initially there is a soft wet cardboard note, highish carbonation, slightly earthy then a boiled malt note. This gets drier as the beer develops on the palate, some fruitiness. Not one I would go back to, but ok.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle from Caerdydd. Floral, citrusy hops. Fresh grass and leaves. Golden clear pour with frothy head. Medium sweet with a lot of hoppy bitterness. Very fruity, a lot of lemon and lime to the taste. Light boddy for a golden ale, thin texture, lively carbonation and pleasant bitter/tangy finnish.
This beer has surprisingly intense hops bitternes, and very multifarious taste to it, despite it watery body. I’d love to try it on tap someday. I heared that Tomos Watkin Brewery has an excelent selection, and this beer is a good example to start from.

Es hat eine Schaumkrone die 4min hält. Der Geschmack ist interessant aber nicht mein ding, irgendwie fruchtig, ein bisschen zitronig. Ist aber nicht so aufdringlich und daher trinkbar. Im Nachgeschmack wird es leicht herb. Fazit: Nicht so toll aber trinkbar.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle from a supermarket in Swansea. It pours a clear deep amber liquid with a huge bubbly/spongy white head that lasts throughout the beer but leaves no lacing. The aroma is light but quite complex: there are mostly floral hops, with some mild herbs, along with a little citron, wheat and a malt base (a little caramel). It tastes likewise, maybe a little maltier, but mild. It is lightly sweet and medium bitter. It has a nice herbal aftertaste. Carbonation is soft and it has a dry finish. A little watery taste and light-medium body, which is poor for an ale like this. Very refreshing and drinkable, though. Interesting summer beer with a very nice presentation (it lacks customized crown cap, though).

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a clear glowing orange with a medium fizzy frothy off-white head. Aroma is fairly summery, wheat, balanced toasty sweetness, summery English hops, bit of dirt and grass, refreshing. Flavor is a bit duller, jell-o sweetness, earthy bitterness, bit of wheat matches up nicely with the Goldings, the citrus is pleasant too imparting a bit of orange. Light bodied, heavy water feel.
