3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml Bottle: best before Sep 2013. Poured at home into a UK pint sleeve glass.
Reddy amber body, bright almost: off-white head of thin foam on top.
Malts rule this brew: roasted, toasted malts to be exact. Fairly sweet tasting beer with a fuity feel to the malt molasses, toffee notes can clearly be found within the malty flavour.
Crisp and well carbonated, easy to drink and interesting.

500ml bottle. Pours a brownish red. Smells choppy with no fruit but just malts. Tastes bitter with nothing very exciting. Extremely drinkable though as it has just the right amount of carbonation and not too strong for a session beer.

Hazy amber beer. Light semi dry palate. Soft creamy malt gives way to fairly bitter hops. Unfortunately all too English in as much as the hops impart bitterness but no real flavour. Still quite a drinkable beer. Finishes semi soft.

Bottle poured chestnut brown with small off white head, smells of toffee and spice with a little sweet smell, the taste starts quite quite bland and the aftertaste although better is still very weak not great

A very simple and ordinary beer, but that doesn’t make it bad. Everything is mild from the hop , floral, and citrus aroma, to the caramel malt and citrus taste.
