2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very mild slightly hoppy aroma. Appearance is amber golden. Rather small head. Tastes of bitterness, slightly watery and fruity, light on flavor, some hoppyness. Light mouthfeel, low carbonation. Bitter dry finish. Decent beer but feels like something is missing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. An amber coloured beer with a tiny off-white head. Pleasant orangey hops in the mouth with some basic maltiness. A sting in the nose with a bit of fruity pasteurisation. Passable only.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark golden colour. Little to no head.
Aroma is not so hoppy, and a little malt is noticable.
Thin watery mouthfeel, high carbonation and a nice hop bitterness towards the end. Long lasting flavor, and a nice drinkable beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
En lätt IPA eller en välhumlad ljus bitter. Smakrik trots låg alkoholnivå. Gräsig, citrus, lätt kropp, torr och stram.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Pours golden with no head. Aroma is surprisingorange hops, like a toned down ESB. Taste is orange to start and then a grassy bitter finish. Really impressed.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is a copper sort of color with a short lived cream colored head.
S: Certainly a strong bread character to the nose that is much of what the aroma is. A light note of grassy and earthy hops, too.
T: The flavor exhibits a fair amount of grassy and herbal hops with just a subtle bitterness. That said, biscuit and bread malts provide the bulk of the flavor.
M: The body is medium with a moderate carbonation that gives the beer a bit of crispness.
D: This fits into the style well; light in flavor and easy to drink. Not overly impressive, but not bad by any means.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear golden/orange colour with a thin white lace. Quick dissipating head. Fruit malt aroma. Thin body, refreshing beer. Lacks a lot of flavour and substance.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This was a keg, not cask, but I don’t see a cask version so I’ll put it here. Clear light amber, small slightly off-white head. Very very watery, some grain, light fruit, and a touch of hops. This is damn near water.
