2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Pours cloudy amber with a good head. Mild yeasty aroma. Light honey and floral notes, a little citrus, mildly bitter short to moderate finish. Perhaps not quite enough bitterness for me. Not perfect but pretty good.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, but my bottle looked a little different than the photo here. It is a great looking beer, gold color, big, long lasting white foam on top. After that, there is not so much here. Some mild malt, but I didn’t pick up the wheat at all. Very light palate, not much flavor, actually reminded me of a kolsch. It is drinkable, nothing wrong with it, but perhaps past its prime, but not much here to enjoy.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 500ML bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma - Has a solid British brew aroma, earthy but not offending
Appearance- A clear somewhat pale yellow color with a giant white head.
Taste - Strong malt and yeast flavor, I found it very enjoyable.
Palate - Heavy carbonation with a light bodied beer made this an interesting feel. I liked it.
Overall - A good beer that I would drink again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint bottle. Clear amber gold with a fizzy off white head. Carbonation is visible floating up. A little spice and a little fruit. Just a little bitterness, too. Malts are kind of doughy. There is just not a lot going on in this one. It is generally sweet and easy to drink.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint, bottle. Cloudy copper orange, fizzy, floral, and bready on the nose. Rose petal, caramel, bread dough, chewy, some grass and mustyness. Bubbly yet a touch thin in the finish. Got more interesting and flavorful the further I got with it. Very drinkable.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. Pours golden. 1 finger head dissappears, little lacing. Taste is soft, light with slight malty finish. Full mouth feel which expands in your mouth with big bubbles. The taste lingers. A nice light easy drinking beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Golden with a small head. Slightly bitter with a medium body.Is this really a Burton Ale as its says on the bottle? I just thought it was pretty boring. Not in the same league as White Shield.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 3/20
Perfect pour before the head disappeared before my eyes. Light gold with pure white head. Other than that, it’s JUST beer.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from B&M. A golden ale with a quickly fading white head. I had high hopes for this given the reputation of White Shield. Boy was I disappointed. Very fizzy and lacking in flavour. It could almost be a lager. A little citrus and marmalade, but not much. Poor.
