3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This reddish amber beer poured with a decent beige head and a toffee aroma. The fluffy head subsided, leaving a sweet tasty caramel malt brew with a little carbonation and a nutty hop finish.

Can that I picked up from Bellingers, Jet Garage, Grove Nr Wantage, Oxon, consumed 15-10-09 pours orange with a slight orange tinge, off white head which is a bit filmy, also touch of haze and medium carbonation. Some toffee in the bite, touch of stickiness and sweet malts but these are more than balanced out by the crisp refreshing nature of this beer. Soft in the mouth, a little flush of fresh hops, very pleasant. A7 A4 F7 P4 Ov15 3.7

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Uto. Pours a clear, surprise...amber, with a lasting off white head. Sweet biscuity malts and sherbety hops in the nose. Taste is much the same, sweet and malty with a floral, almost citrus hop presence without being bitter. Basically, does what it says on the can and it’s not all that bad really.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Lightly hazed dark amber color with a taller beige head. Toasted fresh bread scent. A bit of wet herbal hops that for me nearly always distract and reminds me why I do not really like ambers. Somewhat watery feel. Toasted malt, hint of alcohol and some roasted nuts in the flavors. A little bit of licorice puts me over the edge. Bleck!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle; poured a darkish amber color with a medium, off white head. Aroma of fruit, caramel, citrus (hop), and yeast. Palate was a highlight; soft with a bit of creaminess to it. Flavor didn’t mesh in a great way, but it did have some really nice flavor components. Caramel, sweet malt, earthy and citrus hops. Flavor lingered quite a long time. For the style, quite good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tin, 355ml, pasteurised from Bellingers Garage, Grove. Red amber with white head, some carbonation. Smooth, sweet, fruity beer with a sweet toffee character, touches of redcurrant, but overall a little soft and flabby. Consumed whilst watching England qualify for the World Cup Finals though, so I upped the score a little.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice amber orange color. This is pretty good. Quite a bit of hops for an amber. Malts are fairly consistent throughout. Proof that canned beer can be good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can picked up at the Bier Stein and snuck into an Emeralds game and poured into one of their cups. Poured a nice copper hue with a moderate tan head. Aroma was caramel, some roast and a light earthy hop note. Flavor was much the same, but with a real buttery aspect to the mouthfeel until the very end when it became a little more crisp. Decent amber, though of course nowhere near the quality of their uncanned Dry Hop Red.
