2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A Mes rate (Actually an Elena rate): 50cl bottle from Shamansburys.
Looks like beer. Very very see through. Like condesed piss. Like first thing in the morning when you are away on holiday and you had too much to drink the night before. Slightly chemical, a wee bit like puke in the morning after too much cheap vodka. I could manage a pint but no more. I wouldn’t recomment this one, it’s not that nice. Quite Basildonian.
Mes: Erm... I have to pretty much agree with Elena.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. A pleasant bitter with modest fruit flavours. Not obviously pasteurised, but not fresh either. Hops finish in a bit of a smudge, but a decent enough bottled British bitter.
