look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Big slightly off white head slow recedes above a clear bright golden well carbonated beer.

Light lightly roasted grain malts lend an earthiness to the aroma.

Light grain malts taste with just a bit of grassiness or something similar to that coming through as well.

A light dry aftertaste without much taste of anything hanging around with this light bodied beer.

A very light beer without a unpleasant aftertaste like a lot of lighter American beers have.

12-oz bottle into Samuel Smith "Tulip" pint glass

A - 3 fingers of cream-colored head over a slightly-cloudy golden yellow body (almost a tint of amber)

S - weak grainy smell, butter

T - wheat bread seasoned with herbal hops, slight fruitiness

M - medium body with medium/high carbonation

O - The color could be darker, the smell could certainly be stronger and more complex, the malt profile could be more pronounced, and the carbonation could be a few notches lower. It's a drinkable brew, but nothing special.

It's got a nice head, that's got to count for something. The beer itself is a slightly copper colored ginger ale looking liquid. The head is a couple fingers of different sized white bubbles. Thick and fluffy, it's got powerhouse retention and killer lace.

I tried and tried and tried to pick up some sort of scent, but there isn't much there. I think I detected something cracker-like, but I can't be positive.

It tastes like what I imagine dirty water would taste like. It's possibly got some imitation Noble hop variety and maybe even some ginger, but it really does taste like what I think dirty water tastes like.

Has kind of a faux savory feel. Either that or it's just beer gone bad, can't really tell. It gives me a bit of a pucker in the finish which I why I thought ginger might be in it.

Pretty bad beer. Not easy to get down. Better off avoiding this one.

My first post and apologize in advance about the format. I was disappointed with this English style ale though maybe my expectations were compromised. I love Theakstons, Tetleys, etc. and while I love the Dundee label, this beer disappointed from an expectations standpoint.

On the other hand, for a relatively inexpensive, surprising experience and for those interested in a light, lemony taste with easy drinkability, good after taste, it's not half bad.

A: pours a clear golden yellow color with a white head and ample amounts of lacing

S: light smell, wheat, grains, malts

T: light flavor as well, bread, grains, wheat, yeast, malts, and a bit of hops, could use a bit more oomp on the flavor side

M: medium carbonation, it is smooth and refreshing, its alrigt

O: was not bad, I would say it is alright, not impressive but I could drink one after another of this stuff, I'd say it is worth a try.
