Appearance: pours a light amber colour, coming with fine carbonation and a thin off-white head settling to a thin rim on the top.
Smell: light yeasty notes come behind the otherwise aromatic gristy pale malts, with a light whiff of floral hops on the side; given a very good swirl, earthy elements from Fuggles come to the fore, as well as a lightly stinky-sulphuric edge as of hard-water based pale ales. Overall, very timid, comes the aroma.
Taste: very gassy on the entry, the flavour is… well, quite neutral on a palate that is watery and faintly slick, showing weak maltiness, some signs of earthy hops, a little boiled root veggie like sweetness possibly as a result of pasteurisation, and a slightly more noticeable tail of dry-ish and sulphuric undertones. Not bitter but rather dry-ish in the finish, without much of an aftertaste.
Mouthfeel & Overall: initially fizzy but softening as it goes, this light-bodied pale bitter is dull in flavour and not bitter at all, altogether tasting like some drink utilising maybe the second/third…(!) wash and very random manipulation of hops.

Not a bad beer is brewed by wychwood which make very good ales

Ditto I had a couple last night very agreeable to my taste. Has always been 89p in my local lidls also.
voted hot as it is a good deal although not reduced I think it worked out at £1.85/L as opposed to most other bottled beers starting at around £2.50/L

Fuggles is the hop that used during the boil to provide bittering and aroma. It is what gives it a hop profile.
