3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
decent easy drinking ale, only really let down by an offly flat and bland palate, lots of styrian golding twang in the finish.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a pale amber with a quickly disappearing tight white head.
Drinks thinner than i thought for a 5.5% pleasing bitterness giving way to sweet caramel ending in long astringent finish. I know we’re dealing with 2 different beasts here but this isnt half the beer it was when brewed by Gibbs Mew. Wont bother to drink this again in a hurry.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very dry and bitter and quite hoppy. Citrus and biscuit tones too - not bad, but not the most quaffable pale ale I have sampled.
