3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly cloudy golden beer with a decent white head. Metallic, hoppy aroma, quite sharp and paint-like. A little sweetness in the taste, but the hop was dominant. Good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle condtioned. Poured with a massive head, can just see some gold/brown beer. Aromas are sweet buttery malts with green pine and melon and spices. Flavours are sweet, yet dry biscuit and toffee malts followed by gentle pine and spices. Soft on the palate with a pleasant carbonation. A good beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle conditioned, from Beer Cellar in Lincoln. Deep orange bronze, thin but lasting white head and intrusive condition. Excellent blend of chalky, piney hops and sweet chocolate malt notes in the nose. Quite thin and slightly tart in the mouth, although that could just be a slight carbonation issue. Some dry chocolate powder notes shine through and a low flowery hop note, which also lingers a while in the finish. A vague nuttiness and slightly soapy yeast note emerges right at the end.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. Murky amber with decent sized white head. Fairly messed up aroma, cinnamon and rusty nails. Flavour is rough as well bitter as like with sharp sting on the gums. I must confess it says use by Oct 2003, but for a bottled conditioned beer I would have expected more.
