3.03/5  rDev -6.5%

A 275ml bottle with a BB of May 2012. Part of a 4-bottle gift-pack from Morrisons (sold off cheap after Christmas).

Poured into a straight pint glass. A clear golden-amber colour wtih medium carbonation. Forms a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before subsiding. Aroma of distinctly grainy malt with hints of candy sugar, fruity ale yeast and subtle flowery hops.

Tastes of grainy malt with a dry bitter finish. Mild notes of earthy yeast and stewed hops, with faint aromatic hints. A reasonable stewed hop bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is light, dry and tingly, but a little thin. Somewhat astringent. Aftertaste of grain and faint stewed hops.

Not bad, but lacking in character. The graininess is quite nice - conjures up an image of fields of ripening barley. Not too much hop aroma or depth of flavour. Drinkable but nothing special. No need to seek it out.

3.48/5  rDev +7.4%

275ml Brown bottle, best before 1st May 2011, poured into a 'Good People' glass, all the way from Birmingham ALA.

looked fine, light amber clear body and a full off-white foaming head on top.

No huge aroma, but the Fuggles and Goldings give it a slight hop smell.

The taste is crisp and sharp, a good blend of ingrediants. You'd never guess it is only 3.2%ABV by the flavour it holds. Having said that, it is a light ale, so it wasn't going to be rich and heavy in anything really.

Easy to drink and ideal to quench a thirst without taking on board to much alcohol.
