3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
440 ml can purchased at Rimann Liquors in Prairie Village, Kansas. The pour is a slightly hazed copper, with brown and golden, along with a well formed 1 1/2 inch off white head. This beer fills my Samuel Smith nonic pint glass perfectly. The aroma is gentle caramel malt sweetness, toasty malt and a nice earthy mineral. The taste is quite soft, cracker and caramel malt, followed by floral bitterness that bites nicely through the introductory sweetness. There is an interesting milky fruitiness to the finish which is (far) more pleasant than it sounds. The palate is medium bodied, very creamy mouth feel, low soft carbonation and the dry, slightly mineral bitter finish. Nothing about this beer really wowed me, but in total, I really enjoyed it. Nice beer to have around the house.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Personally, I think itís whatís wrong with too many British beers. This is a thin beer without much flavor. A bit of breadiness, slight hop bite at the end, but overall itís too flat (I know, I know, itís the "style" but itís too often an excuse for bad brit beers) without enough bitter.

Very watery bitter. Thin light caramel and metal. Raisin and paper. Pretty lightweight fare even for a bitter.
