2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour from a bomber. Dark brown, clear, low carbonation. Little to no head. Oxidized nose and taste. Metallic copper nose somehow, which is not very appealing. The taste is slightly better. This beer is skewed a step or two sour - not sure if this is on purpose or not, but it is my understanding that old British styles were basically all soured. Fig, apple, sour raisin.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bomber pours with a mahogany colored body that supports a dark tan head. The aroma is very mild with malts, some fruity esters and a can of mineral metal like old pennies. The taste offers up sweetness, apples and apricot sweet fruity esters and then it moves into some roasted malts and an off-putting tart sort of metallic note. This isn’t working all that well.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Brown color, tan head. No aroma to speak of. Flavor? Pennies, rust and pool water. Awful. Just awful.
