2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Brown 500ml bottle, best before 22 Nov 2008, drank 24 July 2008.
Almost lager looking, a very light amber/dull yellow with a big white head, no sediment left the base of the bottle, so the beer was clear.
Overal I was disappointed with this brew, very little aroma,taste or body. The Goldings and Fuggles Hops used and the Maris Otter Pale Malt failed to impart any great depth of character or flavours and it was a ’nothing beer’ to me. This is a great shame, because this is the first beer from Wye Valley that I have reviewed on this site and I generally like their beers.
