Another tasteless bitter, thats thin and light. The pasteurization is gives it a funky club soda taste. Sour smell and taste with acidic. Lame

Bouteille 50cl, merci Pierre T. BB 06/2016. Couleur dore-ambre, col crmeux blanc. Arme offre un malt modr typiquement anglais sur un rtro lger de grill. Houblonn reste noble avec galement un style anglais tirant vers un agrable fleuri. Palais est lger, malt, cara et grill subtil. Houblonn reste tout autant minime apportant juste le soupon damertume - citronn. Pas mauvaise mais on reste dans la grande ligne anglaise mainte fois revu.

Scopey (13343) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle from Harveys. It pours clear pale gold with small bubbly white head. The nose is toasty, grainy, straw, earth and bread. The taste is lightly bitter, grainy, straw, watery, pithy lemon, grassy, musty and bread with a short, dry finish. Light body and low carbonation. Pretty light, earthy and musty. Nowhere near as good as the cask version. Meh.
