Bottle (500ml from Asda, £1.76):
Light copper topped with a bubbly, white head about half a centimeter tall and with about average retention.

Light with sweet malts and some very light fruit. There are a few floral notes and a very slightly nutty aroma too.

Sweet and malty with a bit of earthy bitterness as well. There is a nutty flavour too and some lighter spice in the background.

Light medium body with medium carbonation & a clean and dry, bitter finish that is fairly crisp.

Another fairly average beer from the Whitewater brewery, pleasant and drinkable but lacking anything out of the ordinary. A pretty malty flavour throughout but it didn't have too much else really.

BB Oct. 2013, served cool in a straight imperial pint glass.

A: dark amber in colour, great clarity, lasting off-white frothy head, plus fine carbonation.
S: slightly more… acidic, a bit more vinegary really, than necessary… don’t know what caused this level of sourness but I suspect it is to do with the yeasty elements in the bottle. Behind the sour fuirtiness, a faint note of sweet maltiness comes through. But overall not very assertive and not as hoppy as the beer label describes it to be.
D: a bit sour at first, then the rough earthy hop bitterness catches up, followed by a little bit of aromatic malts and then more harsh, unbalanced sour-ish yeasty elements, altogether tasting like a cup of cold, sour herbal tea that has a powerful bitter tail to it.
M&D: fairly decent carbonation comes behind a light-ish body, pretty drinkable only if the flavour profile is not so bizarre and unbalanced, just full of unfavourable sourness in every sip. Otherwise, the bitter level is true to the style, Bitter, and it could’ve been an enjoyable pint.

3.8/5  rDev +10.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Blonde with a slight amber tinge capped with puffy, rocky snow white head. Soap, cut grain, toast, golden raisin and some earthy hops on the nose.
Straight pale malt up front - burnt table water crackers with a touch of peanut and a touch of golden syrup - followed by lots of spicy, earthy English hops.
Salty end with a bit of apricot and tree bark bitter linger. Light, crisp, very dry.

Lean, almost lager-ish pale ale, with loads of English hops. Don't let the name fool you - it's paler than even many APAs. I wonder if it's even a bit too stripped down - can a 3.7% ale be over-attenuated. But great to have something low ABV and flavourful (if a bit aggressive) in bottles; smart one to switch to as the night gets on.
