3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle from Co-op, long stratton) Poured a copper clear colour with a big white head that lasted. Smelt hoppy and citrusy with a bit of butterscotch. May be because I hadnít eaten in a few hours but the first sip of this tasted brilliant - a very nice pronounced hop flavour, not overly citrusy, just solid, well rounded and fairly bitter as it finishes. The maltiness in biscuit like in character, making a bittersweet taste. Brilliant for what I expected, which was just a golden orientated bitter. Very drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, shared by fonefan. It pours a clear, golden body under a white head. Butterscotch and citrus in the aroma, not much else, and not very pronounced, but at least without off-flavors. The aroma is much the same, and has a piney, citrusy bitter finish. Medium, quite effervescent mouthfeel. Quite refreshing and drinkable, but also un-challenging. Would probably be easy to down a few, but also boring. (080822)
