Big supprise here. Aroma is fruity and fresh slightly sweet. Taste is not as complex but similar, very easy to drink though im not a big fan of carbonmation in beers and normally swirl beers till they are flat. Good to know u can get a bottle for £2:50 just down the road!

Mostly lasting head, wonderfull amber colour, average aroma, and finish a bit bitter. A little disapointment, but an OK beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Asda. Clear amber brown with dissipating head. No yeast. Rough, malty, diacetyl aroma. Acidic, metallic finish. I didn’t enjoy this very much at all, I’m afraid.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - corked and caged. Amber body with a small tanned head. Nose is rich with fruits, wood, light grass, sweet malts, and almost brown sugar. Taste is sweet ripe fruits, light wood and grass, creamy malts, light brown sugar, some caramel and light toasty notes. Body is light and bubbly but not overdone carbonation. Finishes with more wood, light grass, fresh fruit, caramel, light brown sugar and sweet malts. Based on other ratings I’ve seen, this should ahve been a terrible beer. Either I got a fresh one or I’m just not picking up on the stuff that made it unpleasant to others. There was no sourness to my bottle at all, rather it was fresh, pleasantly sweet and very drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium amber, head fades quickly. Aroma is woody and sour. Flavor has a faint note of fresh cut oak, followed by a clear taste of Granny Smith apples. Abrupt, faintly bitter finish. Should also note that the beer had definite sour component that melded with the apple flavors. I should have liked this beer, but frankly, I didn’t. Not certain why.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a deep amber/copper color with a modest fizzy head that departs soon after the pour. It’s got a strong candy-caramel aroma along with crabapples, hay, and a hit of sourness. The flavor is mainly caramel with the apples and a hop bitterness hitting the back of the throat in the finish. The tongue is left feeling soiled and sour. Interesting.

Bottled 25cl (BB 11/2005)
Nut brown, a bit hazy, small tanned creamy head. Strong rye-malty nose. Rye and malt also dominate the flavor. A bit sour. Märzen-like brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer is lightly hazy and has a copper color. The head is a light tan color. I get an aroma of cider, and as I go deeper into the aroma I get lots of fruity apple scents as well as a background of graininess, and a light herbal character. The beer produces a large head, but the carbonation is relatively light. This is mainly a light refreshing beer. Up front it has a bit of sweetness, which, carries throughout the taste profile. Tastes of caramel, cider, a bit of astringency, and a bit of plum. Quite clean overall, basically this is quite simplistic and straight forward. A nice, refreshing beer.

Bottle, at Benny.
Coppercoloured with light brown head, almost lasting. Nice lacings. Aroma of malt (raisin, brown sugar, sweet fruit) and hops. Flavor very sweet and moderate bitter, good balance. Medium to full body, creamy, soft carbonated.
