3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark brown with a finger of tan head.
Nose is brown sugar, caramel. toffee, raisins.
Flavour is pretty muted. Slight smoke and caramel on the mid palate, and a sweet and slightly watery finish with a bit of toast and a hint of citrus and hoppiness.
Medium bodied with a slightly watery mouthfeel.
If this tasted as good as it smells it would be a really excellent beer, but sadly it’s somewhat lacking.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasty sessionable beer. Had a few times at the lucky coq. Poors a pleasant brown, clear, minimal head. First up and after every sip there is a sharp malty slightly fruity sharpness. Find it interesting and tasty. Easy to drink without becoming to bland or a good one to throw in the mix when your getting tiered of the pints of pale lager. Good effort.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not much in the aroma, appearance is a deep brown with an off-white head. Taste is good, definitely what makes this beer, I get fruity and floral notes, some nutty flavour and feel and a touch of sweetness. Palate is simple but warm and rounds off the taste well, a beer with a good finish.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A-- Light colored cola pour, settled to dark cola in glass. Very thin, short lived light brown head. Mostly thin off white circle that clings to the sides of the glass. Decent amount of carbonation bubbles erupt up.
S-- Sweet smelling biscuit, Carmel, chocolate, coffee, and some hops in the nose.
T-- Sweet, rolled oats followed by acidic coffee and splashes of Carmel. Nothing too interesting.
M-- Medium carbonation. Prickly and active in a lot of ways. A lot of sweetness to this. Tastes a lot like a home brew in a lot of ways. Needs a bit more to really excite the palate.
O-- too sweet
