500ml bottle. Clear copper amber colour, bubbly white head with sour mash type aroma. Fizzy on the tongue with malt followed by tangy bitterness, the fizzy sensation and bitterness lingers alittle. Nice bitter but quite light bodied.

Not a bad beer, but not great. Light and crisp though a bit watery. Some grass and earthy flavors. Tried with Dave Bell in Durham in 2012.

Taste is of bitter malts, a very traditional beer, very northern tasting, dry on the palate

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear medium amber body with an average, frothy off-white head of decent lifetime, good lacing. A bit faint aroma with few recognisable elements, I get mainly light caramel, fruits and some faint floral notes. Moderate to light bitter finish and quite faint flavours. A bit thin and watery. Not very exciting, but there’s nothing wrong with this beer, so a fair session ale, I suppose.

UPDATED: FEB 29, 2012 Bottle and rated while drinking it. Deep golden colour, with a quick vanishing off white head. Light caramel and a bit fruity nose. Bitter hoppy flavour with some caramel and fruity background. Medium carbonation even from a bottle, a fresh and nice mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle. Clear, deep golden body with a nice off-white had that sadly disappears quite fast. Medium aroma of malt, caramel and varnished wood. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel and nuts. Medium bitterness that becomes a bit more obvious in the aftertaste. Decent bitter, but not to exiting.
