The appearance is a light golden colour with a one inch thick head which settles to a nice lacing. It's quite hoppy with elements of citrus and grains. Very typical of an american style pale ale, but also with hints of corn and small amounts of detergent. The taste is pretty clean and hoppy with a smooth mouthfeel and medium levle of carbonation.

341ml Bottle from The Cave, Glasgow (£1):
Light & clear amber with a tiny, soapy lacing around the edges.

Sweet malts & a light toffee aroma with some corn and basic malts. The aroma is subtle and slightly metallic.

Sweet malts and grain with some corn & light fruits but not much else really. There is a slightly musky taste and some earthy hops.

Sweet with a medium body & a fairly thick taste with some stickiness to the beer. There is a light bitter finish and mild carbonation.

Not good. Sweet and quite sticky with not much going for it. The taste was a nice of basic malts and some sweetness but other than that there really wasn't anything going on.

A 341ml bottle; no visible BB date. Picked up recently for a song from a local off-licence. The label has a moose on it!

Poured into a tulip pint glass. A clear golden colour with medium carbonation and faint floating sediment. Forms a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before subsiding to a thin surface layer. Aroma of light malt with subtle hints of fruity ale yeast, mild grain and a whisper of stewed hops. Slightly sweet, but not much there.

Tastes of sweet light malt with a mild finish. Hints of fruity ale yeast, tart apples and stewed hops. A whiff of cardboard and solvent in the background. Dry, with little bitterness to be discerned. Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with decent body. Slightly astringent, with a faint stewed hop aftertaste.

Meh - not terrible but pretty bland. It's definitely pale, but the flavour and aroma lack character. Almost a macro lager brewed with top fermenting yeast. Little technically wrong with it, but barely worth the trouble of drinking. Give it a miss.
