2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A dark, amber brown beer with a weak white head. The nose is slightly sweet, with toffee and caramel, and also it has a hint of malt. The taste is again, malty, slightly nutty with the toffee and caramel elements coming through in the taste. (Bottle).

Can on the train to Penzance. Pours dark copper with a creamy beige head. Aroma is floral. Medium body. Flavor is floral over slightly roasted caramel. Maybe that’s the nut. Finishes definitely dry and bitter.

Bottle 330ml. Amber colour with aslim white head. Aroma has malt and that pasteurised smell. Flavour has nuts, malts, caramel and a hoppy bitterness. Not bad considering.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Canned. Amber with an off-white head. Aromas are sweet toffee malts with lots of hazel nut character. Flavours are even nuttier, you want to chew it. Dry on the finish. In summary - its nuttier than squirrel shit.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Canned. This is a beer with something of a reputation for being a decent brew. Unfortunately it doesn't behave well in the can. It smells rancid and old. It tastes rancid and old. There is certainly a nutty quality to it, like a Brown Ale or Irish Red, but the canning process kills off all elements of quality.
