3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home. Lightly hazy orange amber color, small off-white head. Aroma is malts, sweetish, dried fruits. Taste lightly malts, dried fruits, light to moderately bitter and I get a touch of oatmeal. Or at least it reminds me of oatmeal. And biscuits. Low to average body, average carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Quite lively on opening. Bronze appearance and slightly bitter. A bit thin and lacks body. Should a beer this week be bottled? Great label though pity about the contents.

Bottle. Amber with a thin foam. Aromas are toffee and caramel with raisins. Light stewed apple with woody notes and fudge. Flavours are sweet caramel and toffee with dry tea and light woodiness. Some sharpish lemon. A bit of cardboard. It’s OK.

500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Lightly hazy amber pour, good lasting head. Some butterscotch on the nose, stewed apples and red fruit, toffee. Taste has more apple-sweetness. Good texture and body for the strength. OK.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear amber color, small off-white head. Diacetylic, sticky nose. Light-body. Less diacetyl in the flavor, some in the aftertaste. Toffee, wort, hoppy notes. Light hoppy notes in the finish. This one was pretty lame.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This one pours a remarkably murky, very light brown. The aroma is quite toasty and a little bit biscuity. Light body, a bit acidic, and has a hollow chocolate malt character. This beer is a real miss.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
@ The Lamb, Frome. Poured with a ton of sediment but the red-orange hue is nice. Too bad about the murkiness, it’s quite off-putting. Aroma is clear but shy. Bready malts and some fruit juice. Flavors start similarly with fruitness before taking a welcome turn towards a bread crust finish. Quite nice overall.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask (Kitty’s, Helsinki)
Rich nutty grainy and even dry barky hoppy aroma. Big for a 3.6% beer. Some spices and even ginger, Soft carbonation. Deep amber, small loose head. Unsurprisingly watery palate. Some fruity restronasal esters. Taste is a bit dishwatery. Finiah pleasantly bitter and a little barky and herby. Simple, but OK.
