2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle: pours a hazed amber in the glass with a smallish white cap. Modest carbonation. Aroma is understated – light sweet boiled cereals, light grassiness – clean. Weak mouth feel fluid body. Flavour is mild in both malt and hop presence, has a decent smoothness and ease of drinking, Bitter clean finish. Seems like a standard Brit pub mild to me, 2 dimensional, not really distinctive, but I presume this is far better fresh on cask – I have to wonder about the freshness of my sample seeing how it had virtually no ale fruitiness to it. Not that I’m overly thrilled by these mild Brit ales, but the idea of bottling cask style ale never works out well as it stales out so quickly in small containers like bottles.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mahogany amber colour with a covering of white head. Notes of nectarine, candied orange peel and some faint woodiness. That woodiness comes through in the flavour along with gentle spice and orange peel again. There’s tangy bitterness and tingly carbonation. A bit of a treat down here.
