2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Ehn. For something billing itself as "full flavour", it fails to deliver. A mediocre beer with a little too much hops and a little too much flavour behind it. Mouthfeel is exceptionally watery and thin. Hops are bitter, lingering, and boring, with notes of pine and ennuie.
It’s a reasonably pretty dark pour. Super-thin to non-existent head.
Boring. Mediocre. Nice label art is about all it really has going for it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle thanks to Jared. Pours a dark amber with a lovely red hue - the head is decent. The nose is biscuity and slightly nutty with just a hint of toffee - gentle praline. More of the biscuity on the taste but there’s no nuts but fresh apple instead. The palate is light to medium bodied with a slightly crunchy texture and a fairly balanced finish. Overall, a well made bitter/mild.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
pretty flavourless really. a few grains floating around - barley, bread i suppose - but beyond that, not much. has a rather lagerish taste. that said it’s not like it’s completely bland, fairly refreshing as well.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark caramel brown with a thick, frothy, lacy tan head. Smells of caramel malt mixed with dark malt creating nut, dark berry, liquorish notes. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Tastes like a bitter mixed with a mild rather than being anything either one. Sweet caramel, malt, nut, biscuit and dark berries - blackberry mostly, liquorish and a soft bitter slightly roasted dry finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber-brown colour. Caramel and lightly fruity aroma. Similar taste. A rather bland offering, and totally lifeless in bottle format.
