3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, average and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate malty and lightly sweetish aroma, some floral fruitiness and light citrus hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel, some floral fruitiness and light citrus hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light citrus hoppyness. OK, but lacks character - as the label says ĒAn easy drinking ale".
