2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can 440ml 3.5%. Poured golden orange with an averaged sized, creamy, yellowed head which lasted very well. Aroma was of sweet bread with honey oat cereal, sweet caramel malts, nuts and hints of peaches. Flavor was of sweet bread with an almost non existent earthy bitterness, caramel malts, honey, some wet straw, hints of pear and a dry nutty finish. Light bodied with soft carbonation, a dry mouthfeel, watery texture and a short length finish. Reasonably sessionable bitter IMO – I wish Australia could brew mid strengths even half this tasty.

Lovely caramel aroma and a golden honey amber colour. What an ale should look like. Mild hoppy and bitter tasting with caramel undertones. Lingers.

Out of date bottle from B&M but still fine. Copper-golden and not much head. It has a very small sweetness and a medium bitterness at best.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Amber colour, thin white head. Very little on the nose, sweetish malt flavours, little in the way of hops. Thin and watery, not up to much at all!

Bottled 05/10/13. An amber coloured beer with a whitish head. A malty old fashioned bitter. A bit of a tinny aroma with some fruit in the mouth. Dry raisin. Obvious pasteurisation, It’s OK.

Bottle from B&M. Pale amber ale with good foamy white head. Slight floral citrus aroma. Refreshing and easy drinking, but lacking any complexity. To be expected for the strength.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From B&M Hinckley. Clear bronze slicked with white.
Decent aroma with caramel-draped fig and raisin. Similar chewy dried fruit, watery toffee and cereal flavour. Specks of aniseed/Allsorts as from so many brown regional bitters. Humdrum but perfectly pleasant.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml Bottle:BBD 31 Oct 2013, poured into a UK pint sleeve on 7 Sep 2013.
Looked good, nice golden amber hue to the beer, on top a full and lasting off-white crown.
The nose seemed more malty than hoppy, as did the taste: a good blend and well balanced in both aroma and flavour. Semi-sweet lead with a mild hop bitterness at the finish. Easy drinking brew with enough taste to interest.
