2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
At just on cool and into a snifter. Hazy, pastel yellow and still. Head off the pour holds; snow-white and daubs the glass well. Strong, dried herb and butter note atop hints of fresh baked bread, honey and almonds. Bready, sweet and a little cloying on the palate - OK it’s over date, but this drinks like it’s a year over date. Light bitterness is overdone by the yeasty notes. Body is light but it sits heavy in the stomach. Not much else. Forgettable. (33cL, BBE 04/15, Luckies Liquor, East Vic. Park)

330ml brown bottle, cork and cask, Edinburgh. Pours medium golden amber with no head. Scent is mango and passion fruit with a musty, flowery center. Taste is medium pale ale malt with plenty of dryness and a honey flavor end. Finish dry. Good.

Slightly hazy golden color with a thick white head that fade out quickly. Aroma is hoppy and fruity, notes of orange and light sweetness. Flavor is hoppy and malty, hints of citrus and biscuit. Low carbonation with a light to medium body and a dry bitter finish.

yellow/gold clear, with a small foam which lingers. Mango, papaya and citrus on the nose. to taste, its mellow, following up on light tropical fruits, it is crying for citrus to come through, but it just doesn’t hit the spot. good nonetheless.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
19.11.2013. Hieman sitruksen ja humalan tuoksua, myös hunajaa? Maku aika samoilla linjoilla: hieman sitrusta ja humalan puraisua, jälkimaussa kuivaa humalaa ja ruohoisuutta. Aika suoraviivainen, mutta jotenkin kevyt alkutuntuma ja lopun bitteri eivät ole tasapainossa. Jälkimaku ei oikein miellytä.

Bottle. Lychee, gooseberry, citrus and elderflower aroma. Fantastic. Lots of residual sweetness against which the bitterness struggles for a few sips before the whole achieves the desired balance. Nonetheless a crisp beer. Very tasty.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from cellarbrations super store hami hill. Pours clear golden with a thin white head leaving some lacing. On the nose you get hints of citrus, stone fruits and grass. It's typical English style, low carbonation resulting in a very thin mouthful. It has a lingering bitter finish with lots of stone fruit notes. Quite a nice beer but It just feels and tastes a bit incomplete. If this had a bit more carbonation I think I would have enjoyed it more!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Aroma hoppy, fruity, earthy. Light caramel. Clear golden to orange colour. Rather short lasting head. Taste is quite surprising with its up front hoppiness. Almost no balancing malt, which also results in a thin body. Fruity, zesty, earthy, moderate bitterness with a definite touch of sourness in the very beginning. Might just be a good beer in some way, but does not fit me at all.
