3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light brown body, mostly headless. Biscuity, oats, simple malt bill, some woody herbal hops. Clean yeast, not much to it. Okay drinkability but not quite as smooth as the better English bitters. Simple but okay taste. (50cl bottle from Beer City)

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. It’s a clear, dark amber colored beer topped by a finger-thick off-white head. It’s pretty toffee-ish and bready on the nose, with some caramel and grass notes. Pine cones. It’s full to medium bodied and quite dry, with dried fruits and toffee in the flavor. Lasting roasted finish with toffee. Well, it’s actually quite nice this one, but I find it too dry and one dimensional. 140301
