3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml Bottle from B&M - Unremarkable golden ale, clear yellow body, thick white head that lasts not that long. Nose is a bit like a lemon biscuit, not too sharp, with a hint of cereal there. Taste is clean, fresh and not very bitter. refreshing, yes - but that’s the only upside.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from B&M. Quite an odd tasting golden ale. Lots of citrus hops on the finish, but some malty wheat notes in there too. Not great.

500ml bottle at home, chilled. Cereal aroma. Bright yellow body with a white head. Grassy cereal and citrus flavour, with a refreshing bitter finish. Superior summer session swigger.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled 24/07/13. A golden beer with a white head. A farty, obviously pasteurised beer. Citrus hints but mostly boiled sweets. A typical mass marketed pasteurised stinkbomb.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Quite pale gold, thin, patchy white head. Fresh clean citrus nose (grapefruit?) medium bodied, lightly malted, with subtle hops. Ok, but nothing to write home about. B&M, 99p..can’t complain at that!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lighter on the palate than the aroma suggests. I suppose this would be expected from a 4.0% pale ale, perhaps I was expecting a little more.
Still, at a bargain price from B&M Bargains, a fine accompaniment to my curry!

50 cl bottle.
Originally rated on 20110323.
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Aroma of grass, fruits and nuts. Flavor of hay, fruits, mild hops and pale malts. Boring.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Muddy yellow pour. White head laces the glass. Initial skunky aroma, was it stored correctly? Catch fresh bread and butter on the nose. Some citrus flavors but not much else. Medium body but think with a poor aftertaste that lingers.
