3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown 500ml bottle with a 4.5% Bitter inside, best before 16th July 2009, drank on 22nd April 2009. Poured (twice) into a La Chouffe stemmed tulip shaped glass.
Lovely, lovely, lovely. Deep amber body with a very good, rich and high tanned head. The beer had a teak wood sort of hue to it, clear and wholesome looking too.
Very different to the cask version and a lot stronger in alcohol. The aroma, taste and mouthfeel just don’t match up and why should they, this is obviuosly a completely different beer.
Hops, barley and nuts in the aroma, along with some malt bread and toasted brown bread.
The beer just tastes right, good bitter bite and a hoppy aftertaste, a classic British Bitter.
Adnams are a favourite of mine and this is the sort of product that highlights why.
A joy to hold and drink!

Bottle. Poured clear reddish brown color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bitters sweet flavor with a medium bitters sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid interesting beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml from Arden Wines- a pretty big fish to have slipped through the net. Attractive, Ribena-ruby with a slim white foam. Light, aniseed-sprinkled hop aroma with underlying chocolate and soap. Soft, slightly soapy hop with aniseed and thyme-like notes; chocolate coated nuts. But in truth, not that interesting. Blandness approaching John Smiths territory: wet air, English-style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Strong, malty aroma has a fruity overtone, mainly pear and grape. It pours a clear, dark coppery amber bordering on mahogany with a nice light tan head that leaves some generous lacing. Malty flavor is rather bitter, but not fiercely so, with subtle notes of fruit, wood and caramel and a touch of smoke. Smooth texture has average body and a fair amount of fizz.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at Griffin’s Steakhouse, Stockholm, Sweden. Has little to no aroma at all, a slight grassy note but not much. Taste is slightly bitter but very watery, more of everything would’ve been great. Drinkable and thirst quenching but boring as hell.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml Bottle (from Sainsburys):
Light earthy hops and light malts hitting you first. There is a tiny amount of bitter that is detectable and a touch of fruit too.
Copper to amber with a bubbly white head that is about a mhalf a centimetre tall. This eventually settles to thin, soapy lacing after about a minute.
Earthy hops and malts that are coupled with some light, summer fruits and some bitterness.
Light bodied and smooth although not quite falling into the watery category, there is a mildly bitter taste and a hint of dryness to the beer. Average with mild carbonation.
Although not a bad beer really it was far to mild and lacking in any strength or flavour where it counted and not a beer that I particularly enjoyed or would go back to.
