Bottle from Sainsbury’s. It pours straw yellow, with a decent white head. The nose is dough, floral and green vegetables. The taste is oat, dough, floral, lemon, straw, cardboard and metal, with not much in the finish. Light to medium body, average carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. So-so.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Peckham’s. Pours a light golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of mead, elderflower, pepper, grassy hops and William’s house yeast. Flavours similar with a little musty honey to finish. Not as sweet as other Williams beers, a little dry and only very mildly bitter. Moderate carbonation with a honey finish and a foamy mouth-feel. A little CO2 prickle. OK.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden ale with tight white head when poured. Tangy flavour, not much aroma. Has a definite zing to it, zesty with fruity sweetness.
