3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance - deep amber with a generous head.
Nose - as soon as there was a slight hiss of carbon dioxide, I immediately smelt butterscotch. Maybe it’s just toffee and a little cloying rather than being a particular fault.
Taste - caramel with a hint of biscuit at the back. A kind of liquid Fudge bar.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a finish that is a little sweet to be honest.
Overall - it’s nothing special but there’s nothing particularly wrong with it.

Disinteresting is a little too kind. Nothing terrible in any way but you’re not going to make friends by serving this to anyone.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle at home, 4.5% BB May 2016. Dark orange or brown, clear, sparkling, big cratered foamy head, sparse lacing. Aroma is rye bread, treacle, and something imperial-pils like. Body is rounded, smooth, slightly foamy. Taste is rye bread, dense breads, very dark sugars, tangy drying hop spice. It’s OK.

Pours clear, copper colored. Pillowy off-white head. Grainy aroma. Flavor is medium sweet with a spicy kick on the finish and a bit of honey in the aftertaste. Medium body. Pleasant.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Looks good, very good in deed: Rich copper body with an overflowing head of tanned bubbley foam.
The nose was malty molasses and dark fruits: not overly strong but easy to pick out.
The taste simular to the aroma, malty and fruity, almost a fruity malt loaf sort of flavour, but not as thick or rich.
Medium body feel, would have prefered a deeper depth of flavours and a slicker/thicker feel to the beer: still OK but could easily be a lot better.

500ml dark bottle, filtered, from Tesco. £6 for four. 4.5%. A malty best bitter (or Old Ale). Good malt character. Some bubblegum and boiled sweets. An easy drinking and very pleasant beer, though perhaps lacks genuine character. I’ll be happy to explore further though.

Copper in colour and quite heavy on the sweet malt in the aroma. Quite a smooth beer that is quite sweet, nothing particularly special but drinkable
