3.87/5  rDev +7.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bottle. Clear gold with a thick dense head. Lacing.
A floral perfume emanates from the surface. Sweet shortbread malt noticeable.
All this plus candy floss and a mildly bitter finish in the taste.
Vibrant carbonation and medium body.
I rather enjoyed this one.

Looks good like most Williams bros beers

Light tropical fruit on nose

Taste more assertive, good bitterness but not to much

Body and carb good for style

Good if not great beer

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

Platinum blonde with webby white crust. 3.75
Flowers and tart papaya but dust grain sack and paper, too. 3.5
Early shortbread, lots of soft peach and apricot, some guava, but an unpleasantly tart finish. 3.5
Soft, round, just past light. 3.75

Mosaic, Cascade, Southern Cross

I held out hope for a session bargain: €2 from Aldi from an estimable brewery. This in spite of a low fill level and a sunny spot on the shelf. Both of those show: there’s some definite oxidation/skunk. There are signs of delicate aroma from a good hop bill that never really add up. The watery body gets a pass for the low ABV. But that sour milk/rotten straw thing I associate with a lot of British beers is, I think now, age but without the IBUs to hide it. Anyway, this one hits the foul pole and goes into the crowd. 3.5

500ml bottle from Aldi supermarket (£1.49):
Quite a nice offering from Williams Brothers, one of the better from the brewery with plenty of hops and nice hit of citrus to give the beer quite a fresh but well-balanced taste that went down well. The nose was a little lighter than I'd have liked but the taste was stronger and the flavours were pleasant so it's one that I enjoyed.
