2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Butterscotch, denatured alcohol, and honney hints in the crisp aroma. Butterscotch and ruccola flavour. Good bitterness in the aftertaste. Strange "bridge" though between the sweet taste and the bitter aftertaste.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Boozy, with quite a lot of banana esters atypical in British beers. Hops come through as floral and spicy. Sweet and syrupy. ok.

I used to adore the "old Triple" but something happened to it about a year ago , I do not think it is anything to do with the drop in strength , but I do not know why it was dropped , government poking their nose maybe , but it is not the same beer I absolutely adored for many years from Henley and from Witney,PLEASE SORT IT OUT! My life has changed for the worst without it.Best regards Stan.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I love this beer - but not it’s 6.7% contemporary!
The 7.2% version is everything I want from a dark, malty ale - with fruity notes.
Get rid of the 6.7% version - it’s crap, in comparison..

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from B&M. Rich copper colour with a quickly fading cream frothy head. Plenty of flavour to this - Spicy with apple, cinamon, pear drop, liquorice. Feels quite boozy, but in a way that is warming and enjoyable and it remains quite quaffable. A decent beer.
