3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask (Mitre, Cambridge)
Branny aroma. Lovely deep coppery red, brief head. Sweet as well as branny. Some almost solventy estery retronasals. Soft palate, carbonation low. Full malts in the taste, a little sweet and caramelly. Finish again a little sweet, and some honeyish pale grains. Too sweet for my tastes, but decent and no flaws. It is sessionable, and does endear itself to me eventually (i.e. I even bumped its score up on finishing it with a satisfied swallow).

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.568 tap. Clear, light crimson color and a small, white head. Aroma of caramel, dried fruits, butter - not bad for a standard bitter. Taste of caramel, delicately sour, mildly sweet, soft and balanced. Light body, thin texture, and flat carbonation. Finish is sourer, a tad out of balance. Overall not bad for a bitter, but still just a bitter.
