2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
440ml can. Dark copper colour with a large evenly spread thick beige head. Smelt almost like whisky when poured, strong alcohol aroma despite fairly low ABV content. Sharp acrid taste that wasn’t unpleasant, with a medium level of bitterness.

500 ml bottle. Amber color, white head. Slightly nutty aroma with some hops and caramel. Slightly skunky flavor with fruity notes and more nuttiness. Medium-light body, medium carbonation. Not really my thing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can (thanx to Quack-Duck!) Amber coloured, smaller, but quite stable beige head; caramelly-sweet nose with a fruity-hoppy background; mild sweetish-bitter flavour, relatively light bodied; slightly lingering fruity-malty finish with a light hoppiness. Not bad, but only a shadow of the cask version.........

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, dark amber body with a good white head that nearly lasted. Slight nutty aroma with a hint of spice. Pick up crystal malt in the taste, pleasant medium bitterness, touch of astringency leaving it dry on the finish. Should be a good session beer

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle - 500 ml) Part of a four pack my mom brought back from Wales. Clear copper color with a thin white head. Aroma is dry and slightly hoppy with a light malt note underneath. Flavor is sweet and light at the beginning with a malty and sweet middle and a very clean finish. Goes down easy. Very good session beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled) Clear, deep amber with a smallish, firm and lacy head. Moderately strong nutty-citric hops in the aroma, with caramely malt and dried fruitiness. Nutty-hoppy, somewhat bitter flavor with mellow fruitiness, and citric hops drying the finish. Medium body with high, but quite soft carbonation. A quite enjoyable, clean and balanced, true-to-the-style bitter with enough flavor to go down as a session beer.
