2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2012 Draught, 2012. Murky amber colour. Sweet with a figgy character. Too sweet and the phenols are too strong. Still not into this one.
Bottle, Brewery Creek, 2008
Gold-tinged amber-brown colour. It’s a really nice colour, actually. Weak head. Toasty, earthy nose with some brown sugar and tobaccoey hop notes. Heavily toasty palate with caramel & cheesy oxidized hop accents. Sweetish finish. Rather boring.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at the Sussex Arms, Twickenhamd Green - Jan ’12. Poured to a mahogany brown colour, red tinges when held to the light and a small white/beige head.
A malty aroma greets the nose along with caramel and light hopping.
In the taste, malts, a little dried fruit, caramel/toffee and a little warming alcohol especially in the finish.
Mouthfeel is of a medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation and fairly drinkable and smooth.
