2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tried it from keg, 50cl bottle & cask - extra hops in the firkin made cask the best way to have it; however, it’s still mediocre to poor in my eyes. Weak and watery look to it with a bit of fizz - head big to begin with but doesn’t last past the second sip. Fairly bland aroma, description says it uses American hops but I can’t smell them - fairly boring stale English hop aroma. Taste is of malt rather than hop profile, with a little bitterness. If you do have to drink it then make sure you haven’t had anything with any flavour before - you’ll get an awful skunked taste. Would avoid.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
På fat. Guldfärgad med vitt bubbligt skum. Citrus, gröna äpplen och gräs i aromen. Platt och tråkig smak för en GA/BA, där svag citron hittas bland gräs, ljust bröd och örtighet. Påminner mer om en rätt ordinär lager. Kolsyrig munkänsla.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from Abbot’s Ale House, present from a friend. Pours a clear golden with a thing white bubbly head. Aroma has strong marijuana-like notes from the hops, with the malty grass and bready aromas coming through after. Medium sweetness and light hop bitterness in the taste. Quite a dry and slightly bitter finish with sparkling carbonation. Average enough beer, grand for a session.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light golden colour, with a quickly vanishing head. Unfortunately, not Trouble’s finest hour: while there is a strong hoppy aftertaste, the beer itself is unpleasantly watery, making it little more than lightly carbonated beer-water.

Bottle. Aroma is earthy but clean. No hoppy smell. Initial taste of burnt caramel but smooth with subtle honey tones. Aftertaste is better as flavors mellow. Whiskey golden color with slight head that fizzled away quicly. Not particularly moorish...nice to try but doesnt invite you back

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear hold in the glass, fizzy head which quickly disappears. Toasted malt, bread and grain in the aroma. More toasted malt with highlights of butterscotch and a very moderate hop backbone. Not much carbonation. Very short finish. This was a gateway beer to craft for me and I think that’s where it is aimed.
