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!

Pours clear golden color with a small head. Aroma of grass, fruits and nuts. Flavor of hay, fruits, mild hops and pale malts. Boring.

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.

Bottle pours a pale gold with a light head. The aroma is some citrus and floral notes. The taste is also of citrus and mild bitter with a bit of molasses, a pleasant combination.

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. It’s an elementary golden ale, but not generally offensive.
