2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
coppery brown color with almost no head. very low carbonation as well.
it smells like metal/tin, british spiciness, a little toasty and mild caramel.
surprisingly alcoholic flavor... along with dried herbs and the aroma’s notes. dry spicy finish tries to help the flat mouth feel to no avail. 4/3/4/2/10

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle. Pours a reddish-brown with a decent head, some of which stays. The nose has toffee and pecan nuts. The taste has chocolate, toffee and malt. The palate has a medium to big body and structure, but my problem is that it doesn’t clean on the end - there’s a malt note that hangs about rather than a fresh hop finish.Overall, a great smelling and tasting beer which could do with a bit more balance.

Medium amber, small long-lasting head, good lacing. Clean malt with light spices, big finish with the taste of what I suppose is cloves. Good session beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Woodlands Garden Centre, Leicestershire. Pours a ruby brown. Very little/neutral aroma. Dry, woody, earthy flavours. Not as strong or deep as I was hoping from the description. Malts and toffees but disappointingly thin.

Bottle 500ml. Nice beer. Aromas of grass, and pine. Taste has a sweet start, with bitterness taking over. Palate is oily, and highly carbonated. Amber, with a frothy head.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hmm, half liter bottle pours rutty red amber with light tan head. The aroma emits almost nothing at all. Early on this beer’s aroma has no aroma. The taste however is pretty yummy with roasted malts, some earthiness, dark fruity esters as well as modest levels of spicy, earthy and floral hops. It has a nice smooth quaffable body. As it warmed I picked up just noticeable levels of dark fruity esters and malts.
