3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Savory aroma, forest mushrooms, some fruitiness too. Mahogany, persistent head. Nice full malty body, a bit woolly. Improves and fill out as it warms. Fullish, but uninspiring.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle.
Pours a dark copper colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of biscuitymalts, perfume, pelargonium and nuts. Rich flavour of biscuity malts, nuts, grass, syrup and bitterness. Some floral notes too. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and a dry, malty, quite bitter finish. Good.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A not awe-inspiring English brown with a biscuity hop finish that at least delivers interest where this brew fails in delightfulness.
A rapidly disappearing head and a bit too rusty color for a brown, but pleasant and drinkable enough.

Bottle. Bel cappello di schiuma alto, mediamente fine, pannoso e che scende abbastanza velocemente con effetto sapone (lacing), aroma erbaceo, di pane biscottato, note di caramello, al palato corpo medio- leggero, discreta carbonazione, note maltate, seguite da un buon finale amaro con note citriche, agrumate, finale lungo e secco. Una discreta bitter con una buona luppolatura.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours golden amber with a slight creamy beige head. Aromas of floral and light caramel. Med body. Flavor is mildly roasty malt with some floral and mysterious hop. This is bitter, and not lightly so, but the hop is almost like nettles. You only have to bite them once to remember them. This is a very flavorful ale. More so than many "English" bitters.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the bottle marked 17.09.2013. The color is amber orange with a long holding foamy off-white head that clings to the glass. The nose is of mild spice, dough, and a muted caramel malt note. The body is light to medium with a little astringency. The taste has vague caramel malts, vanilla notes, and a low to moderate clean hop bitterness at the end. I think it is pretty decent Bitter.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Foco aged for months on their hot shelf. Pours a clear dark reddish orange appearance with a cream colored head. Bready, somewhat skunky, cardboard, caramel aroma. A bit spicy, toffee, chewy grainy, cardboard flavor. Not great but also mishandled by the seller.
