1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Yikes. Pretty run of the mill, tastes similar to American adjunct lager with a heftier price tag. If you’re going to spend a couple more bucks , just buck up and get something actually decent.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Kris Wines, London. Heard a lot about the Bass brewery through historical recollections of the pale ale lineage, and this is their premier English pale ale/bitter, so this is kinda exciting for me actually! :-) Pours a clear amber body with a small white head. Nose is biscuits, vanilla, mild grainy notes and hints of red fruits and caramel. Taste is caramel, vanilla pudding, mild raisins and hints of grains, nuts and spicy bread-ish malts in the back. Medium body and carbonation. Quite pleasant, but the flavor profile is very "run-of-the-mill-bitter" in its composition and ultimately rather boring.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Sainsbury’s.
Pours Amber almost. Aroma of Caramel, biscuit malt. Taste of initial malty bitterness, then caramel sweetness. A touch of grass, maybe hay. Somehow crisp yet bitter. A touch of copper coin.

A good beer. Some caramel notes, sweet. Honest and old skool, in a good way. Will buy again. Nicer than I?d expected. Malt and toffee tastes sit in mouth after. Yes!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Aroma of fruit and pepper, and toffee too. Light toffee taste, minerals, slightly metallic dry bitter finish. Decent English ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Asda. Got this in for Father. Clear amber. Decent, lasting, white head. Lots of caramel malt. Light grassiness. A bit nutty. Taste is more of that. Smooth palate, albeit a bit papery, and thin. Finishes soft sweet. Some dry. Far removed from drinking this straight from the cask at the Keys, many moons ago...

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 0,5 l, ASDA, Bournemouth, England, UK.
Bursztynowe, klarownie piwo z grubą i sztywna pianą oraz słodowym, karmelowym aromatem. W smaku gęste, słodowe z lekką goryczką i słabym posmakiem alkoholu na finiszu.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 4.4%. From ASDA. Clear orange, high carbonation - lots of bubbles. White head endures and expands over time. Smell is a bit yeasty. Taste starts with mild caramel, syrup from canned peaches. There is a slight yeasty sharpness to start but it dies down quickly to leave a beer that is caramel forward. Nice enough, but not very interesting.
