3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottles from Sainsburys. Light copper colour with an off-white head. Decent carbonation, with mid range head retention, but good lacing.
Slight metallic twang, certainly not unpalatable. Well rounded bitterness and a dry aftertaste. Would quite like to find a cask example for comparison. Reasonably nice beer, could easilly drink more than one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pin bright dark coppery colour. Aroma is malty. I was expecting lots of crystal malt ie caramel but the beer is so refreshing, rather dry but still malty without being cloying at all. Good mouthfeel and body to it too. At Morrison’s for £1.65 so will be buying this many more.
