From the bottle it pours a clear amber/brown with a tan head. The smell is fruit, caramel, bread. The taste is crisp up front, toasted malt, caramel, fruit ending fairly bitter and dry. Light in body with rather active carbonation.

Bottle. A very good bitter. Good flavour all the way through, never watery. Easy to drink, quite light, not too many heavy or overly rich flavours. Therefore I think this would be ideal for people who enjoy lager, but are looking for more flavour in their drink.

Dark amber beer with a large foamy head. Nose has biscuit, lemon, pineapple and hay. Taste is sweet biscuit, lots of lemon, hints of hay and tangy light bitter finish. Nice beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear amber color, topped with a medum sized beige head. Nice and mild caramel malt aroma. Taste starts sweet, mild caramel presence, followed by a gentle hoppy bitterness and a short aftertaste. Drinkable, mild and non-offensive. Nothing special, though. Still, not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tastes of caramel, a very slight hint of fruitiness, fading into herbal hops with a mild bitter aftertaste. Not great but not bad.

Don’t get Adnams apparent seaside sgnature in this one. Some traces of orange and dry earth though and a firm enough structure but not much else.

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.
