2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very pale gold with short-lived slight loose head. Aroma of lemon and (vegetable not floral) hops. Light and fizzy. Taste has a pleasant start with a light but nice balance of light malty sweetness with tangy fruit and hops, but giving way to a rather harsh bitter finish. Overall, OK but not quite right.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. A yellow coloured beer with a minimal whitish head. A non-descript grassy aroma with a wishy-washy taste. A bit of grass again, but this is truly ordinary and dull.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
03/03 0.5 l bottle courtesy of Doggythedog, thanks for sharing! It poured a golden body with medium sized head. Lemony aroma, might be a little bit stale, but wasn’t offensive to me like it was to my friend. On the other hand, flavor was stale, showed some lemony/cornflakes note along with honey/egg malt. Watery short finish. It’s not really like a pale lager, contains some yeast that gives at least some body but doesn’t help with the flavor though. Well, wasn’t so extremely bad after all, but wasn’t nothing good for sure!

Bottle from beershop.hr, shared with heavy
Poured a golden body with a small white head. Yeasty nose, old socks. Yeasty, empty taste, more akin to a pale lager than a proper bitter. I expected so much more and I ended up with a total lack of words.

Bottled 500ml. -from www.beershop.hr
Clear golden coloured, medium sized white head, floral hoppy nose. Malty, floral hoppy and some caramel but a bit watery. Mild bitterness in the finish. Small sediment at the bottom. Average beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy gold, with a moderate white head. A welcome palate cleanser after the disaster that is River Cottage Stinger. Sweet malty aroma with some grassy hops. Easy drinking, with some sweetish malt flavours of summer fruits, grassy hops, a yeasty edge and mildly dry finish. Ok.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy, dark blond colour. Floral aroma with a honey sweetness. Sharp, refreshing, zesty flavour. Lightly hoppy. Very clean on the palate.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle. Very light pale colour with almost no head. Fruity hop aroma and light easy drinking palate. This is the first time I’ve tried this beer and its very different from most bitters I’ve had, almost lager like. I could enjoy this on a hot summers day over most bland aussie mega-lagers. Would drink again.

500ml bottle. Golden amber colour with a soft white head and citrus and hop aroma. Full flavoured with a taste of lemon rind coming through. Light in the mouth to start with but develops a bitter finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is noticeable but not easy to identify - hops, breadiness? Slight fermentation in the nose. Looks quite nice however, though a very light colour, but that seems intentional. Taste is again very light - very hoppy, very simple flavour here. Decidedly average.
