3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is very faint, with a bread malt, minor floral hops, a faint doughy yeast. The appearance is a very clean light copper with a small collar of white head. The taste has a nice light bitterness, with some pleasant dough and caramel malt flavors. The finish is thin bodied, with a very lean texture, a small amount of carbonation, and an abrupt finish. A very nice session brew, would definitely buy again.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
09/03 0.5 l bottle courtesy of Doggythedog, thanks for sharing. It poured slightly murky orange body with tiny head that disappeared soon. Caramel malty and strange orange hops in aroma. Bitterish, quite strange flavor, citrus hops that are totally unfamiliar to me, biscuit malty. Really bitter for a "bitter", like some milder IPA. Still, shows some metallicity and it’s medium to thinner in body so didn’t impress me at all. Metal shows itself in the finish, too, otherwise its citrus bitter and slightly sweet at the very end. Don’t know...had high expectations of this one, it turned out to be one of the worst Broughtons. Label is still great!

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from beershop.hr, shared with heavy
Hazy orange-golden body, white head. Light sweetish cardboardy nose. Eggy, bitter taste, some hops, somewhat agrumey-piney. Ok beer, light and not all that exciting but decent.... could use a better malt backbone and a stronger hopiness.... buuut then it wouldn’t be what it is.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
3rd January 2009. Hazy pale amber beer, Not much head and low carbonation. Caraway aromatic malt with a sour edge and a little bit of watery hops. Slightly unusual flavour but goes down easy enough.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Last of the Xmas selection pack. Dusty orange-gold with a tall uneven head tufting the glass. Honey, wholemeal bread and pine aroma; plenty more pleasantly coniferous hop in the mouth, joined by cream, honey, pastry and lemon. A little bit metallic, but it doesn’t really detract from the freshness of the hop and malt notes. Something very nuanced, plain and English going on here, and I like it. Splash of Black Country, maybe? Slick and harmonious, and actually tastier than the cask version.
