Amber colour with tiny white head. Noses of heavy hops. Slick in texture light oily, medium body and rather dry/bitter. Medium body. Bitter and some sweet notes on the palate. Finish is rather quick, leaves some hints on the palate, could be longer and forestanding to my liking.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle. Hazy dark amber color with a moderate creamy firm beige head. Aromatic earthy toasted malt nose has a fragrant toffee bouquet. Soft and silky smooth mouthfeel leads to a sweet toasted malt palate that is reminiscent of toffee and English Breakfast tea. Slightly tart with dryish notes in mid taste. Bitter Fuggle hops are subtle yet present in the finish. Smooth and ever quaffable. This would pair nicely with Fish and Chips.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle sample from notes. Pours a dark amber color with a small off white head.The aroma and flavor had some fruit, toasted bread,lightly sweet caramel malt, mild earthy hop character, mild bitterness, a hint of floral notes, rather boring. About what I would expect from an imported bitter in the US.
