A boring bottled bitter, nothing really to recommend. A
little dusty hop and sweetish caremelised malt flavours. Metallic

Bottle. pale orange colour with a slim cream head. Aroma of piney hops, some grass. Nice hoppy taste, with just a hint of the pasteurised nature coming through. Hoppy finish. Quite lively mouthfeel. Good.

500ml bottle from Sainsbury. Brakspear yeasty aroma, with some hop and some toffee malt. Itís clearly a Brakspear beer, that yeast aroma is very distinctive. Some hop sting on the end. Fine.

I didnít care for this beer the first time I had it. However, I tried it again last night and found it perfectly quaffable. Itís nothing to write home about, but despite being overly carbonated it has a balanced flavour and isnít in any way unpleasant.

Bottled. A nice orange gold coloured beer. The aroma is piney hops with a bit of grass. Nice hoppy flavours. A suprising hop bite seeing itís F&G. No nasty pasteurized notes. Nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Sainsburys. Nose of fruit, spices and malt. Pours a carrot colour beer with a small disappearing head. Taste is sweet, malty, hoppy and mineral through the nose. Leaves a lingering bitterness which is pleasant. A good session beer.
