2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
33cl bottle from Morrisons. Attractive golden amber colour with a loose cream head; malty aroma with some wishy-washy hops; rich malty flavour with lots of caramel, and short burst of rather indistinct hops; and then perhaps a hint of whisky at the finish. At least they are trying to do something exciting down at Brains.

Bottle at Chriso Easter "Flags of many nations" Tasting, 31/03/13 thanks to Leighton.
Clear mid amber with a thin off white head that departs edgeward.
Nose is malt, bready dough, light spice, wheres the hops and not really getting the whisky either?
Taste comprises caramel, sugars, malt, light hops.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation.
Drinkable but mediocrity screams from this one!

Bottle. Dark copper beer, residual head. Aroma of vanilla oak. Taste is slightly bitter and astringent. A touch of whisky, but minor amount. Vanilla and oak again and a little dry. caramel. Chewy. Its not bad a different type of IPA to most.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Bottle Shop. Intriguing nose with some vanilla cookie notes threaded with a little sharpness from the whisky and a slightly worrying hint of soapiness. Pours a nice deep copper with a strong fluffy head and lace. The flavour starts quite well - a strong bitterness on the front of the tongue at first sip with some peppery spice, a little treacle and some woodsmoke. As it develops, though, it lose something - the mouthfeel is a little thin, the finish a little cloying. It leaves a caramel biscuit aftertaste and a slight astringency at the back of the throat. Probably the best Iíve had from these Brains ícraftí brews, but that doesnít by any means make it a great beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask @ The Union Tavern. The pourís medium amber with a small head. The aromaís of caramel, vanilla wood, some light roasted grain. The taste is weird vanilla treacle, some heavy caramel and jam. Brown bread body. Light grassiness on the finish. The flavors feel flabby and cumbersome. Medium body, sullen palate. Overall, this isnít good.
