Pours a nice brown copper with a small white ring. Aroma is earthy malts, sweet caramel and slight metallic. Taste starts out earthy and sweet caramel malts, small bitterness but ends with a weird grassy and another off flavour that just turns me.

Amber pour with a finger of head. Bready malty aroma, slight spices and a touch bitter. Taste... Bread, caramel, english hops in the background. Best of the brit pack so far. Medium body and easy drinking.

Deep amber coloured pour with a thick white head. The nose is slightly spicy and a little bit fruity. Nice Maris Otter base if a little bit light in intensity. A touch of orange peel and some nice earthy spiciness. There is a little bit of toffee as well. Has a decent balance. It’s pretty good really.

500 ml bottle in a mixed pack from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear deep copper with a decent light tan head. Aroma: Black tea, a little Bergamot-like floral note, very earthy, British malts, woodsy and a touch herbal. Palate: Medium body, moderate+ carbonation. Flav.: Very stern/British malt with some black tea-like flavour, a bit of wet cardboard, a little peppery; dry with fairly good bitterness and a long, stern, British malt finish.

Not for me.

Fľaša. Tmavo zlatá farba, biela pena. Vôňa sladu, medu a chleba. V chuti sladkosť, kvetiny, bylinky, jemne horkosť. Piteľné.

Not that classy as it was in tap, but it still allows some moments of pleasure. Malty start with a decent touch of nuts followed by hops, some spruce and barley. Crispy finish and high drinkability, balanced, semi-bitter end. Fine one.
