The Somerset Sour Ale’s crisp, acidic flavor was exactly as I had hoped and well worth the downtown Albuquerque $7 price. If you prefer your chicken sautéed in a lemon caper sauce and you gravitate towards tart Granny Smith apples, then this British import is for you. The hazy, pale, yellow ale with its refreshing light carbonation had enough zing to make me want to go back for more. citrus, astringent,

Great sour beer. Although it's a bit on the tart side. It's what I'd expect a sour to taste like.

Palate: sours intensify, bitter, lemons, other citrus fruits, some floral notes, some yeast. Overall: OK Sour Ale, seems a little one-dimensional, lacks complexity.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very pale fizzy and clear pour. Little head. Slight cider-like smell. Flavour has some gentle malts and a cider like acidity. It’s very light and drinkable, would be good on a hot day out in the beer garden. When I had a quarter left I blended it with some medium dry cider and the resulting "sour snakebite" was absolutely excellent. You can really tell that the yeast character of the two and the acidity were in a similar ballpark. Definitively a beer that has a place in a beer fridge.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On keg at Coach and Horses, Dronfield - Pale yellow, slightly hazy por, little or no head. Nose is the same as any fizzy cider, loads of apples not much else. Taste has a wonderful dry kick, loads of crabapples, brett and sour yeast. Finish is as dry as the start. Loved it.

(Wild Beer Somerset Wild) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a tumbler, ABV 5%
Opens with a light gush and pours a pee-like yellow coloured beer, with a tall but thin white head on top, collapsing fast and leaving minimal lacing on the glass.
Aroma has sour fruit notes along with something like sesame seeds, quite yeasty.
Taste is better, nicely sour, again something like fresh bread, sesame seeds, some lactic acidity too.
Medium thin body, good carbonation.
