3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Modest, slightly beige head with tenacious lacing and a nice warm, copper-red colour. Subtle aroma of caramel and dried fruit (red currant and raisin?). Light-medium bodied with sweet notes again and a slightly malty, balanced finish. Not outstanding by any means but I think this is worthy of a higher average score.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A Mes rate:
Bottle from Peckhams and consumed on the train on the 6 hour journey back to London. Heavy mid brown with a pretty solid and creamy off white head. Very strong but not overly pleasant nose with heavy tobacco in a dusty old pub way with some very sweet malt and slight medicinal notes. Flavour is similar, nasty sweet malt, orange, raisins and a bit of chocolate. Rather nasty tobacco finish. Not great.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice head, dark brown color with a red hue. The aroma is malty and sweet, almost like a "hvidtøl". The flavour also is malty, sweet and the finish has a light bitterness. IMO this one lacks complexity - it’s too one-dimensional.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours dark amber with an off-white bubbly head, fades quickly. Nose of hops, soap suds, some malt and some oakwood smoke. Flavour is slightly malty sweet, floral, then some hoppiness, touch of sour fruit and then some smoky peat. Sweetness continues in the mouth for a long time. Peat taste and smokiness lasts right through to the finish. Finish is slightly too hoppy, but good, little heavy for a bitter. Straightfoward.
