3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ THT May, courtesy of deanso. Pours a headless amber beer with the aroma of old bittering hops and some fruit in the background. Flavor is basically only bitter, not much else really. Why is this beer called an amber ale, while almost any other beer from England is called a bitter, but is not bitter at all? Curious..

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Honey amber poured clear initially with a tight persistent head. Outrageous neat blackcurrant cordial aroma with sprinkles of pine needles and fresh pressed coffee. Intense blackcurrant and berry-hinting coffee flavour up top; lush biscuit and cashew linger follows with a retronasal snort of seawater. Cask condition. Beautiful.

Keg at Lyric. It pours lightly hazy amber with a small white head. The nose is juicy orange, peach, marmalade and sherbet. The taste is bitter pine, toast, earth, light pepper, orange peel, kumquat, grapefruit and a metallic twang with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate, prickly carbonation. A bit heavy on the carbonation, but otherwise a solid offering.
