A 500ml clear glass bottle with a BB of April 2018. Purchased recently from ALDI. The label promises white grape and elderflower notes - we'll see.

A: Poured into a pint mug. A bright golden colour with good carbonation and excellent clarity. Forms a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before collapsing to a patchy surface layer. Some lacing.

S: Aroma of ale yeast with hints of light malt, vague stewed leaves, subtle grain and a twinge of cardboard. Average.

T: Tastes of ale yeast esters with notes of pale malt, stewed leaves, mild grain, a hint of cooked corn and subtle cardboard in the background. A moderate hop bitterness upon swallowing, accompanied by a slight harsh quality.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with prickly carbonation and decent body for the style. Aftertaste of ale yeast esters, acrid stewed leaves and faint malt.

O: A fairly sub-par ale; I suppose I should be grateful it isn't laced with diacetyl. Looks good but it's downhill from there. The aroma and flavour are a relatively bland mix of ale yeast, cooked leaves and light malt. A subtle harshness lurks in the background. Average body. Drinkable but not particularly noteworthy - no need to seek it out.

18th Feb 2012: Clear 500ml bottle, best before Dec 2012.

Light golden colour almost straw blond, the head was poor.

The smell was poor, as was the taste and body depth. There was a mini floral aroma and the beer did have a hoppy dry feel to its flavours but it wasn’t a wonderfully exciting or tasty beer in any way: just another supermarket brew from a brewery that specialises in such beers.

The rear label mentions Elderflower and White grapes in the taste: I couldn’t find any of either apart from some flowery esters in the nose.

A: poured from a 500 mL bottle into a glass, honey amber colored with a short white head that dissipates leaving little lacing, clear

S: light malt and crisp citrus, ginger

T: ginger, grape, floral, light malt and hop, distinctly a flavored brew

M: lighter with high carbonation

O: an oddly flavored beer, label says white grape and elder flour, unique taste

Clear bottle ensure's skunky/smelly armpit aroma but a taste this bland
would mean the finest cask offering would wield little better results
