2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Its been the hottest day of the year so far, the cars thermometer hit 31 on the way home, thereís no breeze no air...ITíS TOO F@CKINí HOT!!! Then I remembered I had this in the fridge...and itís so.o.o cold. Cracked it open and poured.....average colour and head, nice malty nose, smooth and malty on the palate (not smooth as in widget smooth, but rounded and well balanced smooth) Overall, I admit itís not a class act, but at the moment itís goin down a treat, good for a canned beer. 89p from VW Kelso.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Having recently moved to liverpool from staffordshire (where marstonís beers rule) i was inclined to try the local brew. In the case of cainís i was very pleased. Rather mild but fruity flavour. A good pint poured from a pump (not a silly tap). I shall be sampling the other cainís beers.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap: Clear dark amber/orange coloured. Huge white head. Not much going on in the nose. A little hoppy. Flavour has a fine bitterness and is a little fruity. Ends with a pleasant bitterness. Good beer, which is still served at SmÝrum Golfcenter. Drunk april 2003 and was wrongfully placed under the cask-version.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
canned, labeled Finest Bitter; from the FÍte de la BiŤre 2005, Lausanne - dark and bright amber colour, very shy foam, the nose shows a pleasant aromatic hoppiness with deep flowery notes and a touch of red fruits and honey in the background, low carbonation and a good malt backbone, a moderate but long lasting bitterness while the hops show themselves a last time in a quite malty aftertaste

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Deep chestnut, thin shortlived white head and low condition. Typical English aromas of toffee, caramel and hops in the nose. Toffee more prominent in the mouth although the hops start to kick in later on and contribute a touch of delicate bitterness in the finish. There is a faint suggestion of sweet smokiness throughout, although that may have just been wishful thinking on my part.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A dark amber beer with a fine head. It has a sweet aroma of malt with hints of fruitiness. The flavor is a nice flat english bitterness. It contains notes of smoked malt in a good malt blend, that gives it a nice slight sweetness before it ends on a great dry hoppy bitterness. Definatly a great beer, I wish I knew where I could buy it (I got mine from the brewmaster at Ceres when Ceres still owned Cains)
