This bitter ale poured from a hand pump with a thin off-white head. A typical bitter but with a full flavor and a nice hop bite at the finish.

Bottle 5ocl. Poured clear dark amber, with a foamy offwhite head. Rich flowery aroma with a hint of citrus. Fragrant flowery and hoppy tatse, and a pleasant bitter finsh with a further hint of citrus. Quite an oily mouth feel. Very pleasant though nothing special.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2006 Pasteurised bottle. Carbonation is artificial, but not aggressive. Pasteurised notes all over the place giving this beer an odd burned sugar sweetness, a stale hops flavour and a dead quality which is really quite unpleasant. That’s a shame because the malty and hop soaked ale that exists underneath the appalling final treatment is quite pleasant, and is fighting to come through. It’s certainly pulling above 3.8%.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2006 Was not bad, but the flavor was almost gone, very good foam for being an ale, but a little tiring before oyu end the bottle.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, from Somerfield. Copper bronze, thin white head and gentle condition. Buttery malt aromas with a hint of earthy hops. Soft and sweet initialy in the mouth but with a developing hop note that becomes quite metallic with time. Short malt and caramel in the finish with a late hint of flowery hoppiness.
