4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Don’t understand the low ratings, unless it wasn’t fresh. Enjoyable session (best) bitter-well balanced. Slight chocolate malt in the finish, some taste of fuggles hops-earthy & spicy. Hops not overdone, but to style. Nice yeast Esters-just enough.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear, medium amber-brown with a lively beige head.
Apple, toffee aroma.
Taste is a bit oxidized...apple, caramel malt, slight leafy bitter, fruit taste.
Not bad, but obviously not a fresh specimen.

Shared 50cl bottle at Susie’s party.
Appearance - dark amber with a decent head.
Nose - toffee, biscuits and some apples.
Taste - more toffee apple and biscuits.
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly fresh finish.
Overall - a decent bitter. So many of their beers are well executed but basically very similar.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
N0t bad at all. Alth0ugh n0t excepti0nal, it’s the kind f brew that I c0uld drink vast quantities 0f. It has an orange/amber b0dy with a m0dest head, but pr0vides s0me nice lacew0rk. It has a fresh white bread crust ar0ma, a dash 0f caramel, and a t0uch 0f herbs and lem0n. The taste is reflective 0f the n0se with a bit m0re herbal character and a slight dry bitterness that lingers int0 the finish. Nice. I wish it went f0r less here.

The best thing with this beer is it’s label, that I like a lot. It has a oily taste and feels oily in the mouth. It does not have much of a aroma. Sorry you guys, but I did not enjoy this one.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma - the aroma is strictly caramel malt
Appearance - body is caramel colored amber; liquid is the slightest bit hazy; and the white head setups about 1/4" and fades quickly, leaving a thin layer of foam on top of the body.
Taste - the malt is a little caramel, slightly nutty, and with very lean spiced hops. It is also rather thin, for a watery quality.
Palate - the body is light; the texture thin and watery; the carbonation is below average; the finish is really wet and just slightly bitter, the spiced bitterness does hang on for a lengthy period
