UPDATED: DEC 5, 2013 Bottle at the White Lady, but something I have drunk many times before. Pours clear gold, thin white head. Aromas of butterscotch and biscuits. taste and mouthfeel is buttery too. A waste of good ingredients to my mind.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml Bottle: shared with a mate on 15 Feb 2013 during a random beer tasting evening.
Nice looking brew: bright copper body with a full if not deep biege head on top.
Malts rule the flavours both aromaticly and taste wise. This is almost a smooth, gentle beer: however the hop undertones prevent it becoming too sweet and malty. Iím sweet toothed and prefer maltier brews, this sat nicely within that ípigeon-holeí. The hops play there part but if youíre a Hop head this isnít for you unless you fancy something diferent for a change.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
5th January 2011
Clear deep amber beer, no real head. Crisp palate. Toffee malt with a good balance of grapefruit hops. The malt turns creamy before the finish which is fairly bitter. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2012 Pours a lovely copper colour, with light, foamy head. Nose of hops, with hints of metal. Taste of malty hops - slightly toffee favoured, but again, with hints of metal. Bitter metallic after-taste, though not in a bad way. Quite enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle, thanks to Bret. Pours amber with steady bubbles and a gentle head. The nose has toffee but more particularly biscuits. The taste is more of the same biscuit, even going into ginger nut biscuits. The palate is medium-bodied with a tangy medium weighted texture in the mid-section and the finish is fresh. Maybe itís just because Iím extremely thirsty but I think theyíve nailed the bitter style definitely.
