3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Copper colour small head. Caramel aroma. Taste is caramel and dry hops. This is a dry sweet beer. Quite nice. A little too watery and carbonated on the palate though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Gold with a nice white top. Strong caramel nose. Citrus and more toffee in the taste. Nicely rounded erring on the slight sweet malty side. Really pleasant drinkers drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I really like this. Aroma is all caramel. Taste is deliciously balanced: bitter and yeast, more caramel. Rounded. Very very like the standard Black Sheep, but I think nicer. Will buy again. Nice surprise.

500ml bottle. Clear golden amber colour, white head and bready malt aroma. Initial fizzy sourish dry , slight hoppy bitterness, layered against a malty sweetish taste. OK bitter.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 To read the method that this is produced under is interesting enough, as for a beer itself it is golden with a strong bitter character in both nose and taste and relatively smooth in its finish.

This is the Sainsbury’s bottled version. Nice sharp, tangy bittereness in the flavor and lingering on the palate. Very tasty...

500ml bottle - looks good, exactly the same as the picture. Deep amber body with a decent sized head. Aroma is pretty average, nothing that strikes you, but not offensive. Mild hoppy taste, nothing afterwards. Very mediocre, but I’d not refuse it in the future.
