3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, shared with my wife. Beautiful deep copper orange, lasting finely bubbled off white head. Aroma is caramel malts, a little toast, chocolate, and yeast. Light palate with enjoyable flavours of fruity caramel with a suggestion of walnuts, as much from the dry finish as from flavour. A nice mild that doesn’t come across as watery.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a ruby red glass with an average white head.
There is sweet malty aroma with some mild biscuits and chocolate smell. Not bad at all.
The taste is very raosted, which is not really my favourite, with quite lots of malts. It has a somewhat stale feel and is quite bitter.
I had better from Adnams.
