2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: The smell is sweet, nuts and almonds, some sour fruit notes, and a hint of old pea soup.
Appearance: The beer is deep amber and slightly hazy, a very small, quickly evaporating and uneven off-white head. No lacing.
Taste: When it comes to the taste this sample was quite stale and a bit sour. Don’t know if something had went astray. Anyway; Some toffee nutty sweetness, slightly sour fruits and a presence of glue.
Palate: No carbonation, flat but soft, slightly dry finish.
Overall: As said, this was probably not in the best conditions.
Note: Cask at DeKlomp. Reviewed 2011-01-25.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It pours a hazy brownish amber with some reddish hues. The head is foamy but soapy and slightly off-white.
The smell is mild. English hops, doughy malt, subtle fruit tones. Earthiness, toffee.
The flavor is pleasant. Breadcrust, some cocoa, dark fruits, almost a tawny wine flavor. Hops come in with some mild herbal notes and a slight bitterness in the finish.
This is a pretty good above-average brew.

500 mL bottle from Tesco into a pint glass. Dark red with little head. Smells of hops and chocolate, nice. Chocolatey, sweet and light. Its nice, but not a world beater.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 ml bottle cellar cool served in a chalice. Beautiful deep chestnut brown body with a white head which rapidly disappeared. citrus and resin in the aroma. I really wanted to enjoy this, and admittedly, it had more going for it in texture than the same brewery’s Golden Seahawk which I didn’t enjoy at all, but I got the same woody wet carboard and paracetmol flavour, albeit with some toffeeish malt. This, for me is not a great signature taste. Overall, drinkable, but not enjoyable.
