2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, Tesco. Good clear golden colour, thin patchy white head. Nose is as expected, nicely malty, with good citrus notes, best thing about it! Medium bodied (not that big really!) initially nice malty sweetness with a bit of hoppy acidity, this fades rather too quickly tho. An ok blonde, struggling to get above average.

Bottle from Tesco, Edinburgh. This is a hazy pale straw coloured beer with a strong malty flavour, toffee and citrus notes with a very dry fruity finish.

500ml bottle at home. Pours clear yellow gold, little to no head. Smells of hay, butterscotch and soap. Lord only knows where the citra went. I imagine it was filtered and pasteurised out of existence. Watery and dull, bordering on offensive.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, 500ml from Tesco in Dingwall, Ross & Cromarty, Scotland. Gold with white head. Lively blonde beer, there was a tangy bitter lemon note with a background grapefruit flavour. Crisp and fresh throughout the beer, really quite enjoyable.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma: Fresh bread, peach, honey
Appearance: Slightly hazy pale yellow body. Small white long-lasting head. Lacing.
Flavour: Medium-high bitterness, medium-sweetness. Initially bitter upfront, then the sweetness kicks in, but still leaving a lingering bitterness. Medium hop flavours. light tart. Dry finish. Fruity, each, guava,
Palate: Medium body. soft but active carbonation.
Overall: I find this to be a lovely beer. Well balanced, but still taking you on a roller-coaster ride of flavours. Amazing! To be a "true" blond ale, it has to be sweeter, but I would rather they change the name than change the beer!
500 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
(Bottle) Lively golden beer. Head quickly disappeared. Fruity aroma. Taste is a slightly sour one with a very faint edge of hop. It’s a bit bland and watery to be honest.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On cask at Dead Poets Inn, Holbrook. Pours golden, fruity but overly so, syrup maybe. A dry finish. It’s only April and I’m now bored of average golden ales!

Bottle pours a clear light gold with a slender head. Aroma of malt and lemon. Taste of malt citrus and mild bitterness. A pleasant drinkable ale.
