Pale golden pour with a thin white head. The aroma is quite light. A bit metallic with a touch of sweet toasted malt. Pretty bland bitter really. A touch of fruit and some soft spiciness.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Caramel, fruits, grass and a hint of honey in the aroma. Golden with a white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Light to medium body with a average carbonation. Overall an OK bitter, but quite boring.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear pale amber with a one finger of light beige head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, moderate lacing. (4/5) Nose is biscuity pale malt, faint citrus, earthy hops. (5/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter. (5/10) Medium body tending to the watery, low carbonation, off-dry building bitter finish. (3/5)
Pretty much a standard Marston’s bitter - think their EPA, except two shades darker in colour and flavour. The hops are a little more earthy than grassy, and the fruit is maybe a little more citrus than stone. Not a lot to really distinguish it beyond that, though - perhaps a marginally better drinker. (10/20)

Not a bad bitter, copper color, pours with a medium head, caramel like hints, smooth little bitter after taste, overall not too bad, part of sampler from LCBO, others to come.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours light copper with a small off white top. Aroma is earthy biscuity malt with a small earthy hop. Taste is much the same, a nice balance of malt and hop. Nice drinker.
