3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark copperbrown beer with quite weak and beige head. Aroma is sweet and malty, syrup, redcurrants and some aromatic hops. Flavour is similar than aroma, red berries, sweet malts with biscuity and wooden charicters that dries the aftertaste. Quite light to drink but still nice. Too uninspirating beer, no complaints, but nothing to remember. This beer is now tasted but probably it isn’t for my glass anymore in the future.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dusty barnyard, bit hoppy and malt smell. Some Antique/attic smell. Flat CO2. Hazy rubin red/orange. Frothy small tanish head. Medium sweet, light bitter, bit velvetish. Waterish on lips but building a light oilyness on the palate. Medium-full body, slick bit oily and straight line texture. Flat carbonation.
Reminds of long faded away gunpowder,expected more of a „bang“ but still a goodn for at the bar. Can’t go wrong here really.

Flaske 0,5l kjøpt på Centra Colosseum, Oslo. Mørk brun på farge. Lavt kremaktig skum. Antydning til ristet malt i aromaen. Litt svisker. Smaken i samme gate. Ganske fruktig med en syrlig bitter ettersmak. Tørr avslutning. En bra ølopplevelse ut fra (mangel på) styrke.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
[500ml bottle from Morrisons, High Wycombe] Reddish-brown with good beige head - an attractive beer. Carbonation is fine but prickly - a bit too much so for the style. The sweet Adnams malt is obvious from the off, but there’s a little bitterness there too. Odd toothpastey mint comes through before a strong woodiness and some light, sharp fruit (raspberry). Pleasing chocolate, caramel and butter in the finish is reminiscent of an Innis & Gunn brew. A very decent bottle of beer aside from the irritating fizz. As usual for Adnams, it’s very different to the cask version, and for this particular beer the bottle is a lot better.
