2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Mahogany brown with bit ruby, huge frothy creamy head leaves nice lacing, looks great. Mild aroma is malty with bread and earthy notes. Fizzy feel, light body and palate, bit too watery, malty flavor stays long, dry, bit harsh. Bit diluted like but looks nice.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, enjoyed while pulling the rest of my beets and carrots out of the garden before our projected cold snap of -15C in the next 24 hours. It’s weird to think that the cold is coming, as it is 18 degrees C and sunny right now. Medium orange amber with a modest white head that laces thickly. Aroma is husky grains and caramel. Grainy caramel flavour, with a kiss of bitter hops to finish. Touch of metal. Not a bad working-in-the-fall-sunshine brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2015 First rating - 10/11/2013: Bottle from Asda, High Wycombe. RB score 6/3/7/3/13 (3.2) Copper with a low white head. Lots of malt, a little caramel, some autumn berries and a light earthy bitterness to finish. Yes it’s a standard bitter from a big regional, but as usual Adnams manage to do it a little better than the other big regionals and- somehow- manage to hide the pasteurization. Decent.
Second rating - 8/3/15: Bottle that Dave shared with me - cheers! RB score 7/3/7/3/14. Really lovely rich malty flavour. Nice nuttiness too, with just a hint of berries behind. Good rich mouthfeel is spoiled just a little by fizz. However, as supermarket bitters go this is really rather good.
