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.
