2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear deep amber with a porous medium sized yellowed head that leaves a lot of lacings.
Fruity and malty sweet aroma with some toffee, apricots, oranges, marmalade, earthy hops, soap and cream.
Taste is slight sweet and fruity but still a bit dry with a soft dry bitterness. Nutty with orange & apricot marmalade.
Medium bodied with soft light carbonation.
Decent but boring.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2011 500ml bottle, drunk on 28 July 2011. A surprise "how had I missed that one before" rating. Actually hadn’t missed much. Looks fine enough - bright coppery amber with a thin white head. Mainly nutty malt aroma with a touch of paper. Not that much happening on the palate. Touch of sweetness in the malts here. A smattering of earthy hop. Nothing particularly unpleasant here but hardly inspiring. Had plenty of worse pasteurised, botled ordinary bitters though.

Bottled (Beers Of Europe). Amber colour, medium white head. Aroma is fruits, mild vegetables, some slight toasted notes as well as earth. Flavour is being quite similar. Rather watery and thin, though the elements are there.

Very pale brown. Nice clean crisp bitter with a biscuity malt and and well balanced slightly lemon-meringue short lived hop. I was really surprised quite how much I enjoyed it.

Bottled. A copper to gold coloured beer with an off-white head. Some grassy hops throughout with some fruits. A reasonable bittersweet balance and really easy to quaff. Plays very safe but hey ho.
