3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours a chestnut brown, quite a bit of frothy head, about a third of the pint glass even with careful pouring. Soon dissipates to leave about a 1cm head throughout the pint.
Full flavoured with good strength of body. Malt charachter definitely at the fore with traditional hop combinations taking a back seat. A proper english bitter. More of an ale for colder weather.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2/25/13. 500mL bottle, sample from a distro, I believe. Not quite clear amber brown pour with a small, soapy khaki head that fades to a soapy ring with minimal lacing. Mild biscuit and caramel on the aroma with a touch of metal and fruitiness. Even maltier flavor with bold caramel and bread and a touch of fruity metal. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2014 Bottled 14/02/13. A brown beer which poured headless. A bitter beer lacking the house yeastiness of an Adnams cask product. Nice fruity flavours in the mouth. Some cardboard in the nose but all in all it’s not bad. Score 3.2
Subsequent rating scored 2.5. Average becomes 2.8

Deep amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is a bit vegetal and some floral hops. Biscuit, toffee and a surprising amount of bittering hops.

Bottle from 16 Tons, Eugene. Pours a golden amber color. Richy, doughy maltiness in aroma. Body is slightly creamy, finish is sweet and bready, a bit abrupt. Wasn’t overwhelmed, but a pleasant enough beer.
