3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: BB somewhere in 2009, oh oh... Served in a Palm snifter:
Small white foamy head on top of a cloudy orange colored beer.
Wow, I smell a teeny tiny bit if citrus, amazing. Some herbs, some malts, some cream, slight tint of apricot and some wood ish malts.
Flavour is very well kept those 4 a 5 years; bitters, herbs, malts, some lemon to light tart ish tone, some plant ish tones, hay and a light woody flowery touch.
Aftertaste is bitter, malty, herbal, light dry, hay and nutty.
Low carbo, watery mouthfeel, medium bodied and a light creamy texture.
Very nice, after all those years!

Copper amber coloured, next to no head but has a lovely smooth texture in the palate. Has a slightly grainy character but its bitterness is also evident.

Not a stunning beer, but on a really hot afternoon, very refreshing. A little sweetish in taste, but I was surprised at how nice it was. I wouldnt go out of my way to find it, but Im glad I got to taste it.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown 500ml bottle, best before 2nd Nov 2010, drank and reviewed on a bright, sunny but chilli Sunday afternoon, 24th Oct 2010.
Poured into an ’abbot Ale’ tankard: light orange/golden amber in colour with a good solid head od foaming bubbles on top. The beer showed a slight haze and bubbles ambled up through the beer to the head all through the tasting.
Fuggles are used, but although I could taste them, their presence in the aroma was minimal. There wasn’t much malt content in the smell either, in fact there was very little smell to talk about.
The taste was a pleasant blend of hops and malts, evenly distributed in a well balanced way. Sweetish upfront with a refreshing hop bite in each sip.
The 4.7% ABV is evident as the beer warms in the glass, but doesn’t effect the flavours too much, just adds an extra dimension to them.
