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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, bought @ Tesco’s, Earls Court, London.
Clear brownish red with a small creamy off-white head. Nice duration for such a small head. Aroma is sweet, lots of toffee, caramel, light liqourice with some viniousness. Rather highly carbonated, but still rather oily. Flavour is high on sweetish caramel, light dark fruits with a fine hoppy bitterness. Long, lingering and slightly alcoholic aftertaste.
