3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
440 ml can from Binnyís, Plainfield. This is a bin for 50Ę, and itís dated May 04. í12, so Iíll try to take age into consideration, since Iíve seen this beer before, and besides, I can now tick Merseyside off my UK map.
Almost expected a can this size to have a Widget, but no. Foamy pour of a carbonated beer over a brown body. I smelt some over-sweetness when I poured, but once in the glass, could not pick it, or anything, up. Just a "watery" nose of a mild ale. Despite the foamy head, the actual carbonation of the beer is pretty low; not totally cask-like, but striving for it. So Iím left with a deliberately light beer: mild malts with a bit of toast. A slight tone of earthy hops, but mainly there to match the light sweetness of the malts. Itís a testament to canning beers that this light brew is still palatable. Although to the middle I start to catch some phenol. I íspect this is better enjoyed in a pub than in my cold basement.

Amber in color and tan foam. Lack of head may be due to age of beer. Taste of sweet malts and toffee. Very thin. Tastes likes cainís mild without the hops. I would like to taste a fresher beer.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Moderately foaming ale with distinct aroma of caramel malt. The taste is most influenced by caramel with a little water feeling to follow. Hop bitterness is very secluded and anonymous, but reveals a little flower in an aftertaste that is not too exciting. It is not a noticeable bitter ale, but it is roughly easy to drink and tasty.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Clear rich amber pour with a smaller soapy head. Light malt on the nose. Palate is decidedly thin. Mild toasty malts. Not a lot to this.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Serving: from can--purchased at The Beer Junction.
Aroma: light malt.
Appearance: average-sized, frothy, off-white initial head with good lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Hazy, dark-amber body.
Taste: lightly sweet initial flavor and finish with average duration.
Palate: light-to-medium body, watery texture and flat carbonation.
Overall: below average. The aroma and appearance were average, but the taste was boring and the palate was the worst Iíve ever experienced--really watery and flat.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cans. Nose sweet and fruity with light mineral and beautiful yeast esters, pours deep mahogany brown with a short tan head. Taste is very sweet, whooa nellie too sweet for a Bitter, and for bitterness itís lacking, too. sweet and fruity with light ashy caramel, mild and faint hop herbality but no malt complexity - just sugar. Light body, easy-drinking.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Brown with a white head. The aroma is full of toffee and bread. The flavor is toffee, bread, caramel and an earthy character I assume is from the hops. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Can): Pours a medium brown with small off-white head. Mild malty aroma, some faint caramel and a touch of grass. Similar in the taste with a surprisingly big roasted malt flavour. Distinctly average.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Maple in color with a lingering froth. Mild aromatics of bitter with a touch of baked malt sugar like cake bread. Soft on the tongue, bitterness up front with a malty character on the brink. The finish is bitter and lingers.

Can @ Gregís house picked up in the Midwest. Pours a bit hazy reddish brown appearance with a tan head. Somewhat buttery, toffee, slightly burnt, earthy aroma. Light, a bit thin, burnt sugar, a touch fruity flavor. Doesnít taste incredibly fresh.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light to mid brown with some head. Smells of green grapes, caramel, booze, roast malt. Tastes like a watery malt drink. Bitterness is moderate at most. Salty on the tongue which is cool. Cainís mild was much more enjoyable though.
