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!

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at home in London. Pours perfectly clear gold with a fairly rich, foamy white head. The nose offers some grainy, pale malts, light cereal, straw and hay. Light sweet flavor with some further cereal malts, light tangy hay, some faint cardboard, dust, lightly toasted straw. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Crisp finish with some crackery pale malts, mellow bitter hay and faintly tangy citrus, mostly lemon. The beer comes across as a touch watery. Itís an elementary golden ale, but not generally offensive.

Bottle, from Sainsburys Lincoln. Gold, thin but lasting white head and good condition. Delicate aromas of sweet grain, melon and herbal hops in the nose, soft and fruity in the mouth with a developing herbal hop bitterness that becomes dominant in the finish

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Average. No dominating flavours or anything of real note when drinking. Itís not unpleasant, itís just not really ANYTHING.
