3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle round The Jenners limbering up for the Sweden game. Cocoa-dusted plum, Imperial Leather and fig aroma. Deep coppery bronze with a well-behaved lacing foam. Deep Scottish maltiness; raisins, milk chocolate, fig again.Touches of almond with Hobnob afters. Mouth-filling. Bit of a treat. Maybe I’ve been on the Baltic pale lagers too long.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml Bottle from Home Bargains:
Mild fruit notes and a hint of an almost metallic aroma mixed with some caramel and some sweet malts.
Reddish amber colour with a large, two-fingers tall head that is very creamy and thick looking as well as dome shaped.
Light caramel malts, some sweetness and a few earthy flavours along with a touch of fruit and a biscuit taste following this. This one taste much like I was expecting but is one that tastes pretty good.
Quite light bodied and fairly smooth with moderate bitterness and a crisp, sort of dry finish that goes down well and would make an excellent session beer.
Standard tasting bitter with nothing your not expecting but it is a nice one in spite of this. The body is a little light but it is very flavoursome, especially for the relatively moderate abv. and light body.
