2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rating #935 - January 22, 2014 - 440ml Can from sales rep. Clear golden pour with a decent white head, medium retention. Aroma is pear juice, floral. Taste is extremely bland, light in body even for the style. Balance of sweet and bitter is there, but it’s lost in an abyss of nothingness.

0,5L bottle. Pours clear golden with white head, the head stays. Aroma: honey sweetness and fruits. Taste is sour, mild sweetness, fruity, faint bitterness in the background. Finish has some light bitterness, but feels very watery. Overall: rather light beer, but drinkable.

Lagerish ale I would say. Color is golden and clear. Taste has a little bit fruits and a little hops. Not very bitte, very smooth.

Good bitter, though not spectacular. The word ’smooth’ comes to mind. Also, I fail to make the connection with the famous fell-walker, whose self-portrait is on the label. Still, not bad, like most Thwaites offerings.
