2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle, head vanished quickly yet the body remained too fizzy for my liking. Hoppy aroma with a bit of malt and citrus, a little dry and peppery on the palate, OK but nothing special.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle conditioned, from Morrisons Grimsby. Gold, good fluffy but shortlived white head and low condition. Slightly sulphurous and yeasty initial nose soon dissipating to leave a gentle hoppy citrus note, quite thin and metallic in the mouth but still with some underlying citrus notes, dry bitter hoppiness in the finish.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle into a half pint glass. Barely hazy gold, white fondant foam. Super sulfury, like a skunked Grolsch. Sweet and metallic with caramel malts and berry. A tad "chunky" with an iron and grapefruit-lime character. Medium-plus heft, sugary, "wet". Neck label accurately describes hop character. Lagerish, similar to a confused bopils.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale gold. Bit lemon and grass flavours dominate. Very drinkable beer and didn’t taste at all like a bottled beer. I guess being cask conditioned helps but it did taste like a cask beer. Rock n Roll.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, Calthorpe Arms, Bloomsbury, London, 15 April 2009) Golden colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of citrus, grass and fresh hops. Malty, fruity taste with citrus and fresh notes of grassy, floral hops in the finish. Fairly dry with light body. Fresh and tasty golden ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, Threshers, Aughton. Looked a bit lagery in the glass. Grassy hop, restrained citrus, lightly bitter finish. Probably not one to linger over too long, but its drinkable and inoffensive fayre and helped wash down a chinese saturday night banquet nicely. Ever so slightly better than average, and as such, worth a pop.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice golden colour with crystal texture. Sweet and citrusy. Quite nice but a little cloying and synthetic.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A wee, fizzy straw coloured ale. Light floral aromas with big lemony hits alongside crisp cereal notes. Sweet and crisp wit a light dryness to start. Summery cereals and fresh russet apples in the mouth. Some rhubarb sourness.
A little over-carbonated for my tastes and slightly watery.
It’s pretty tasty, very good for long sunny days.
