2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not much in the aroma, just a sweet maltiness. Pours a flat copper, quickly disappearing head. Watery and thin. Slightly metallic. Not a standout, and a bad omen since I havenít tried their lager or fruit beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
341mL bottle poured deep golden color with thin white head and virtually no lacing. Aroma of caramel and some hops. Taste is lightly sweet with moderate bitterness in the finish. Low carbonation and light body do not help the mouthfeel. Otherwise, this could be a great Pale Ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
341ml brown bottle. Pours deep gold, approaching orange. Small tight bubbled white head. Some fruity aromatics, a bit of apple. Fruity malt in the mouth, finish has some quick lemony notes. Medium body, average carbonation. Basic English pale ale.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a light amber / dark golden colour, thin white head... mildly hopped, full bodied maltiness, somewhat dry...
not bad, but with more hops, or some crystal malt, would be better...

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A 6-pack for the office. Dark amber tending to orange. A handful of tiny bubbles rise lazily to the surface. A very thin head cannot maintain complete coverage. Thin aroma, perhaps a hint of toffee or caramel. With four different hops I would have expected a stronger scent. Flavour is pedestrian maybe, but not bad. Probably a heavier body than many English versions and a noticeable light hop presence. Light caramel flavour with a bit of a hops in the finish.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear orange amber, surprisingly flat pour with low carbonation and a very low head that vanishes quickly. Looks like a cask brew! I thought maybe it was just the initial bottle, but Parksy and I had a few more and they were all like this. Anyway, aroma of caramel and cooked peaches. Same flavour profile, but really negatively impacted by the low carbonation. A bit thin/watery (again, not helped by the flatness here).
