3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into a perfect pint.
3.0 A: Clear dark orange amber color. Two fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is about average and nothing is left in terms of lacing.
3.5 S: "Stale" toastiness, grainy malts, and an earthy mineral component. Fairly dry. Not a lot going on, but decent enough.
4.0 T: Lots of flavor hiding in the taste though. Toastiness, caramel, graininess, and mineral earth. Much more potent than the nose. Dry, but balanced.
3.5 M: Medium body. Slippery feel to it like nitro or something along those lines. Carbonation is on the lower end, giving a cask feel to it.
3.5 D: Decent beer. Worth a try if you like a lighter beer from time to time.
Serving type: can

440ml can pours amber in color with a small white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and grass. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with a grassy hop bitterness. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation leaving a slight prickle on the tongue. A typical English style bitter with nothing really notable about it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown color and a nice white head that lasts some time. Mild aroma of malt and yeast. Flavor is surprisingly sweet, some raisin, with a very smooth palate and a dry finish. I had low expectations from the scores but this is a good beer.

Can from Total Wine McLean. Pours brown with very little head. Slight caramel note on the nose. Not much on the tongue. Thin mouthfeel. Small hint of bitterness on the finish. Meh!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Reddish copper with creamy cream head with good retention and no real lacing. Smells like white bread. Not hugely flavorful- kind of neutral with a hint of sour. Faintly sweet finish, a little watery.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the can poured a nice, dark amber brew with a creamy, light tan head. Well balanced flavors and aromas of malt and hops. Full bodied and delicious.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2012 The aroma is papery and malty with a toasted quality. The appearance is deep amber with a nitro head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall it’s an average beer.

Gift from SJ. I enjoyed this bitter. Some interesting points. A good blend of nut, dry hop, bitterness, bread and smoke. Its finish was sweet, but not overly.
