look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

341ml bottle poured into pint glass feb4 2010

A clear bronze with tonnes of bubbles floating up to a fingers worth of head that has good retention and leaves a few rings of lace

S lots of caramel with some bread and a mild fruity aspect

T not far of the smell only with some mild mellow hops and some cereal

M a little thin but good carbonation helps its cause

D would make a great session beer with low alc. I could drink this all day

this one was a little better then I expected, well rounded and worth trying. I think I may need to reconsider trying the rest of their line up

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Bright, pale amber with an effervescent and very short-lived head. Smells of bread and biscuits with a hint of woody, floral hops. Taste is similar to the smell, toasty malt and bright floral hops. Light-bodied, mild, and highly carbonated.

Tame example of the style, no off flavours, a little too bubbly. Decent.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear and almost iridescent copper colour with a limited white head that dissipates quickly. Has a mild and grainy aroma of sweet caramelized malts. The flavours are simple and a wider public should find them inoffensive, with the sweet caramelized malts followed by a mild hop bitterness.

A bland style of beer that I don't personally choose often, but believe this to be a well brewed example of it.
