3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Batch No. 4-OCT/2002. Aromas of dark fruit and caramel. Translucent ripe apricot color, and the white head evaporated immediately. Medium mouthfeel. Fairly low carbonation. The start is malty sweetness, quickly followed by stone fruit notes. The finish is well balanced between fruit and hop. However, the finish is not strongly bitter. It’s really interesting. Something like a high alcohol British ale.

355ml bottle - thanks Marduk!
Lovely dry woody nutty aroma. This is English, right? Nottingham yeast? Anna gets apples, I don’t. Lovely woody body, slight nuttiness. Even more nuts in the finish. Soft palate, smooth, pleasant soft carbonation. Damn, this is so English, I love it. Nuttiness, dryness. I want more of this beer. The other fuckers drank it, and they like it less than me. Bastards.

Bottled, 375ml, from Beers of Europe, Norfolk. Reddy chestnut with slight white head. Sweet, toffee, butterscotch flavours with a heavy alcohol presence right from the off, quite cloying and palate filling. Quite malty, little on the hop front. A big bruiser and not very refined.
