2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Oct, 2012. JDW, Rochester. Fruity premium bitter with a dryish palate from caramel or crystal malt. Doesn’t sit together well for me - rather rough but drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
25th October 2012
Hamilton Hall Spoons. Clear gold beer, little off white head. Light dry palate - smooth. Sweetish dry malt. Floral notes with a subtle ester. Tasty and juicy hops - tangy tangerine, orange, lemon and lime. Dry finish with a minerally carbonated bite. Like the hops here and the way they contrast with the esters. Decent.

Another good looking brew from the local ’spoons beer fest! Mid brown in colour, good thickish white head that leaves nice lace down the glass. Smooth and malty, with just a touch of hoppy bitterness. A good beer that went down really well!

Hand pulled at Figure of Eight, Birmingham. Not very amber; quite like an English Pale Ale. Flypaper, pasting table, envelope etc. Not brilliant. An OK, sticky dry Bitter.
