2.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Cheap in a special offer and I was hoping to find a gem but didn’t drink more than a few mouthfuls. Just not my cup of tea - thin and watery, overly bitter given its little complexity, doesn’t sit well in the stomach. Nice amber colour and acceptable nose. Processed and artifical aftertaste. Glad to have tried any beer but won’t buy again.

Pours deep amber/brown classic bitter colour nice think head, aroma is quite sweet toffee and slight orange fruity. Taste to follow with a lovely balance of bitter sweet flavour that lingers and finishes quite dry and bitter. Very nice and strong flavour for a low strength beer

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a bark brown/copper colour with a foamy head. Aromas of malty sweetness, dried fruits, raisin. Taste is quite complex for the abv- bitterness, with a bready, malty backbone, plenty of raisin and fruits. Very good example of the style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A coppery beer with an almost medium and blond head. The nose of strong toffee and sweetness, red berries, also some dry wood. Taste of nuts and toffee, dryer than aroma, some fruits and wood. Almost medium bodied with medium carbonation, nicely smooth to drink. Quite dry end. Nice beer, traditional bitter but fluent to drink and not musty.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Christmas. It's a really decent traditional bitter with nice busy orangy aroma and palate. Lighter and fizzier than it appears, and perhaps more than would be ideal. I've had loads of dodgy cask pints of this, and the bottle is far more reliable, if a little misleading.
