3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (500ml). Pours a clear, very bubbly golden-orange with an average size fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet and grainy along with some light hops. Somewhat mild and sweet flavour of grainy malt and light hops with an average bitter finish. Average bodied. It’s fine, an O.K. beer.

Bottled from Wadworth Brewery, Devizes. Pours a very light orange, almost yellow colour. Aroma quite fruity and flowery - slightly citrus. Nice balance of bitterness and maltiness. Quite pale for a bitter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Having had this on cask, I wasn’t exactly looking forward to this, but this was surprisingly really good. Some house Wadworth yeast on the aroma, but the best things about this beer are the mouthfeel and smooth swallow and the really really good fresh hop sting and lasting hop sting on the finish. Malts are just about ok. Not saying that I’m going out to buy a shed load of this again, but a lot better than I had expected. It won over my indifference.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
[Bottle at Wadworth’s brewery bar] Now, this is a bit of a shock - a Waddy’s beer that doesn’t have the usual farmyard/straw/egg flavour. It tastes very fresh and light with a hint of orange. It could make for a pleasant beer if it wasn’t ruined by the intense, prickly and almost metallic carbonation.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle (From Humble Plumb, BB Nov 07). Some frtuitiness but pasteurised boiled caramel shines through. Wouldnt dream it was the same beer as the cask version if I tasted it blind.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, pasteurised, 500ml. Orange gold beer with white head. Wadworth have started to bottle their range of beers and sell them through their pubs, this was bought at The Trigger Pond, Bucknell, Oxon. The beer has a sweet hoppy aroma without the Wadworth eggy note. Sweet hoppy beer, quite fresh for a pasteurised, malty base, quite biscuity and a good finishing bitterness. Enjoyable.
