3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(on bottle)On the bottle are hops printed into the glass and I understande why. The dark, orangepeelcolored brew has a big twing in the aftertaste of hops. The aroma is kind of fruity(aple and grass) and the beer is, overall, a kind thirstkiller.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottled) Amber color with a big, foamy head. Very faint, slightly smoky and malty aroma. The flavor is sweetish and malty at first, but soon turns to bitter and slightly metallic, while quickly fading away. Syrupy and sticky, light to medium-bodied palate. A typical British ale without much character.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rocky white head towers above the rim of the glass. Orangy chestnut body. Fruity flavor with tea-like notes. Well rounded finish hides hop character that sneaks up on you. Good but slightly lacking in malt character.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sparkling orange/gold, creamy thin quick dissipating white head. Very pretty ale. Light roasty malt nose. Hints of scotch with wood and earth. Bitter medicinal anise. Tones of Toffee and sugar. Chewy bread crust flavours. Complex enough and consistant. Finish duller than expected.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of hops and tea leaves. Thin head over a clear orange colored ale. Malts and plum in the flavor....bitter finish, boring and uninventive. Average, at best.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark amber body with off white head. Aroma is malty and bitter, almost unpleasant. Commercial description says fruit, but I am not getting that at all. Taste is bitter, still, and slightly sweet. nice tongue tingle and mouth feel. A little disappointing overall though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange-copper body and big foamy white head. Nutty aroma of toasted English malts. Starts with some fresh maltiness and leads to a woody/herbal hop flavor in the finish. Also has a metal phenolic quality, but not overly detracting. A decent bitter.

Good session brew. Nice copper color, nice nutty malt character, bit of butterscotch as well. Finishes with a crisp bitterness. Is a bit metallic, but still good stuff.
