3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Quite a heady, chewy dark fruit nose with an inviting malt nuttiness. Stillish and unlacy. Apple-fruity with lots of nutty caramelised malt sugar, and a hint of choc. Decent.

Foggy, red-brownish body under a frothy, beige cap. Fresh hop-floral aroma. Moderate hop resin in flavour alongside a sweety touch. Well balanced bitter finish. Worth repeating (500ml bottle from Centra, Colosseum, Oslo - at home 28.02.2008).

Bottle. Beer poured a real chestnut colour with a good head. Plenty of caramel and toffee in the nose with plenty of hops. The beer is malty with a hint of toffee in the mouth with a good hop bitterness, and a malty sweet finish laced with hop flavour. Not a bad beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle. Amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma is clean – malt, caramel and hop. The flavor is nice and well balanced, even impressive consideration the low alcohol. It’s not very complex, it’s rather straightforward British bitter with malt, traces of caramel and some degree of sweetens with an emphasizing bitterness. Well done.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rich, full tasting bitter, bittersweet. Some dried fruit, some summer flowers. A few pints of this on cask in the back garden of a pub would be just the thing.
