3.3/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A 500ml bottle with a BB of Dec 2012 on the cap. Acquired quite a while back from a local off-licence. The label has a football theme going on, with the tag line 'A beer of two halves'.

Poured into a Sam Smith's pint glass. Evidence of bottle-conditioning. A golden hue with faint haze and very high carbonation. Forms a decent head of white foam that resembles meringue; this subsides after a minute or two. Aroma of malt, sharp citrus, grassy hops and dry yeast. Quite a nice hop presence.

Tastes of pale malt with an aromatic hop character and a dry finish. Notes of earthy yeast and citrus. A restrained hop bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth and dry, with good body. Pretty astringent - a bit over the top. Dries the palate completely. Aftertaste of yeast and aromatic hops.

Quite nice - even with the excessive yeast flavour/aroma. The citrus hops are tasty. I suspect that the age of the bottle is responsible for the yeast dominating the beer, so a fresher example probably goes down a treat. Would be nice on a hot day - worth sampling.

3.33/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 500ml bottle. For those who don't know the F.A. is the English Football Association. Contains wheat oats and rye and spelt according to the label.

Pours a dark/reddy amber colour wih a quickly dying head.

Smells faintly of hops, very faint, slight skunk to it as well.

Tastes very very malty at first, with a faint hops, which come forward towards the end in the form of a very bitter aftertaste.

Overall a bit of a mess but could be alot worse. There are far better bitters out there though.
