2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark amber with moderately tall tan head. Aroma is a bit musty/funky, but otherwise not strong. Quite bitter and weedy tasting, with a hint of malt in the middle and a hint of pepper on the end. Lively palate. A bit too bitter for my taste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Waitrose and drunk at home. Clear mid brown lasting beige head. Slight toasty malt aroma with some earthy English malts. Toasty malts are rather good as is the balancing English hops. Rather good I thought. Good balance good brown bitter. I liked it. Good balance. Good malt good hop. Very drinkable. I’d have a second bottle easy.
