3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle from the Black Bull.
Appearance - amber with a decent head which hangs around.
Nose - cake mixture and a hint of spice.
Taste - tangy dried orange and generally fruit cake.
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a balanced dry finish.
Overall - very enjoyable. Extra complexity seems to develop down the glass.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Copper amber ale with a decently thick off-white head. Nose is ginger biscuits, light lemon, salty toffee and sweet malt. Toffee and a hint of ginger & spices. It feels like Iím drinking this one at the wrong time of year. Quite "full" and itís not a quaffer. A full "cakey" finish and I can definitely see the appeal here, but itís a bit sickly for me.

bottled. Sweet malty amber coloured beer. Barnyard & yeasty aromas, full flavoured chewy palate, with plenty of body. Lingering aftertaste with some mid dryness in the finish and very faint sulphur. A very English beer!
