3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hand-pulled cask pint in my local Wetherspoon pub on 8th Aug 2014. Chestnut reddy brown body with an off-white head of creamy textured foam, some good lacing as the beer level fell. Malts rule this fairly heavy brew. Caramel with light toffee esters in both the nose and taste. Calming hop presence mid-sip helps to keep a balanced feel. Good body depth and enough about the beer to keep you interested for the whole pint.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cooper caramel colour. Off white head. Some coast malt aromas. Flavour is sugary sweet and effervescent. Like a sparkling wine with some malt flavour sprinklers in. A bit acidic in the finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ the Ship Inn on Anglesey, of course. The beer is a dark toffee colour with a nicely proportioned head. The nose has toffee, small amounts of biscuit and apple. The taste is more in the toffee and caramel zone with a decent amount of bitterness to make it refreshing. Overall, a good ale.

One-third pint glass, cask at Ship & Mitre. Tiny beige head to an almost mahogany coloured body. Good amount a lacing to the glass. Earthy, mid-sweet, malty nose. Taste of caramel malts mixed with spiced fruits. Bitter roast malts to the finish. Fine bodied. Decent brown bitter (Liverpool, 08.04.2013).

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From 500 ml bottle. Nice malty aroma. Hazy amber in colour despite careful poor pouring. Slightly spicy taste with a muted citrus. Utterly forgettable beer,inoffensive and pointless

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Well carbonated, with thick marshmallow head. Hazy. An interesting mix of flavours, some pine. A worthwhile effort.
