2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Sainsburys. Pours clear blond with white frothy head. Looks a bit watery. Aroma is a bit biscuity, bit honey. Bit like hobnobs actually. Tiny bit of citrus in there too. Taste is quite plain. Biscuity again and not much else. Feels very thin in the mouth. Maybe a bit too subtle. Not in any way offensive, but not really that noteworthy either. Having said that, I did quite enjoy it in a funny way.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home in London. Part of the Sainsburys Super Challenge. Pours a clear, highly effervescent gold with a charming, pure white foam head. Some sugary toast in the nose. Very nice flavor, extremely subtle notes of brown sugar and caramel, plenty of bread and toast, and just a slight bitterness of leaves and grass. Light to medium in body with average, crisp carbonation. Finishes clean and crisp, some toast and mild, herbal hops. The overall character is restrained and the beer is very drinkable.
