660ml bottle from Sainsburys. Dark gold in colour with thinnish white head. Excellent hoppy nose with some biscuity malt plus loads more green hop tang on the end. Reminds me of an APA but far less sweet. The fruits are peach and lemon and the hop flavour is superb CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - JAN 23, 2005
Called ’Late Hopped Blonde Ale’. Sparkling carbonation, no yeast evident. Brilliant aroma of citrus hops, peach and apricot. Good Mouthfeel. Excellent hoppy aftertaste. Tastes very fresh and refreshing. johndoughty (5452) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2004
Some of the Meantime beers produced for Sainsburys have been dissapointing but this one was not-in fact it was a pleasure to drink.
Very hoppy with a bitternesss that lasts just long enough to leave a flavour that is nice without being overpowering.Maltiness is also there but its the hops that grab your attention.A very refreshing and pleasant beer. Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2004
Sainsburys had a bunch of bottles reduced down to £1 (660ml bottles), not bad!.
Wonderfuly fresh, aromatic hoppy nose. Has a light malt character, but really tasty with grainy/biscuit notes and loads of hops. They don’t make it insanely bitter, just very pleasent and hoppy! Great beer, I may get some more botltes of this. JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2004
Yellow/golden coloured with a thin but persistant white head. Smells hoppy, fruity, floral and sweetish. Taste is very hoppy with a lasting bitterness. Some lemon in there as well. Nice mouthfeel, moderately carbonated and nicely thirst quenching. I like it. Thus far my Meantime experiences have all been pretty good.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2004 Bottled. Gold colour, moderate head and condition. Orange citrus hop aroma with some fuity malt. Good level of citrus hops in the mouth becoming spicy and finally dry and hop bitter in the finish. Good session/summer beer.

fresh fruity aroma, golden hue with a small white head, hoppy/peppery flavour, quite dry. leaparsons (10554) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2005
Deep golden with a persistant off-white head. Aromas are sweet and aromatic hops with a fruity citrus twang. Flavours are biscuit malts with lots of juicy, citrus and floral hops. Nice fruitiness near the end. Dry on the finish with a gentle, not aggressive bitterness. Very good for a supermarket beer - Spa and the Co-op should take note.

Bottle. Filtered, but unpasteurised. BBE 05/04 Natural carbonation - very soft and fresh tasting. Surprisingly soft, delicate and fresh fruit aromas - hoving around citric, but slightly sweeter - passion-fruit, melon, gooseberry, etc. Very pleasant. The beer dies down very quickly, becoming quite lifeless, so it's best to drink this one quickly. The malt is vague, like a lager - just a bit grainy. It's the hops that do the work, so thank goodness Hook hasn't pasteurised the delicate floral flavours. Finishes dry with a lingering soft but full bitterness. I have to admit, this is actually very nice. Garrat (1347) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2005
