3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught) Sampled on November 23rd, 2006 at the brewpub. Thin white foamy head with a deep orange body. Great full aroma and a ctirus hoppy nose. More like an EPA? Same English malt base with a very smooth texture. Low pressure creamer tap pours a lovely head and texture. A VERY drinkable ale and due for higher ratings!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a 650 ml bottle, thanks BeerPrince. Dark amber-orange coloured with a thin yellow head. Light crystal malt and a touch of sweet aroma. Light woody hops and an overpowering celery salt aroma. Flavour is pretty bland and quite vegetal. Perhaps better at the brewery, but this bottle is quite poor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper colour. Fruity-hoppy aroma (blackberry, cherry) with a hint of toasty malt. Palate shows woody hop flavours and a moderate, appetizing bitterness. The woody finish is long rather than dry.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep amber in color with a nice cascade hop aroma. Bit of a malt flavour but mostly just straight up bitterness which is rather harsh even though it’s not overly bitter, was still pretty decent though.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice amber colour with little head. Little nose but the flavour was nice and hoppy. Probably the best beer I had from the taster pack.
