2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Asda. Deep amber with no head and slight carbonation. Bready malts, a hint of fruit and lightly bitter finish. Nothing to praise, nothing to criticise either, a totally neutral beer.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle at home. Has been a long time since I last had one. A supermarket purchase. BB Feb 2016, 4.8%. Dark orange, pretty clear, the odd bubble, after the initial foam a small scummy beige head forms, no lacing. Aroma is toffee, copper pipe, coins and neoprene. Maybe some ginger biscuit in the back. Body is medium, soft carbonation, quite smooth. Taste is damp bread, coins, soft bitterness. A plain, malt-forward beer. Not awful, but I probably won’t revisit this one.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle into pint glass. Sweet malt nose, a little smoky, a touch of spice. Shiny bronze beer with frothy white head. A couple of bubbles. Slight zing in the mouth. Medium body with traces of malt. Finish has just enough hops to make you want another. Dark fruits make an appearance late on. Excellent bitter, well balanced.

500ml. in a pint glass. I bought this @ Morrisons as I have been buying up boring beers that I have scrolled past b4. Nose of dusty books , butterscotch , caramel malt , salty nuts . It is a good looking orange beer with a good foamy white head . very malty , chewy and tepid . thought it would suck more .

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Tesco; clear dark amber pour with a massive bubbly beige head, aroma has dark fruits and brown sugar sweet malts, taste has caramel, autumn leaves, some vegetation, a hint of fruit, wasn’t expecting much, and you know what it didn’t deliver, probably better in cask.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Canned version not the bottle. Head is short lived and leaves minimal lacing. But the colour is true British bitter. Nose is malt, chocolate and plastic. Taste is surprisingly light. On first inspection I really thought it would be heavier. Light carbonation on the tongue leads to a balanced malt and dry finish. It is the ale equivalent of Super Dry. Moreish yet not overly full over flavours. The flavors I do get are super light caramel, toffee and malt.....but very faint. It is a decent ale but if I was to drink a Wells ale I would go for Bombardier. The cask version is much better.

Pours a clean Amber colour with a moderate off white head that doesn't hold. Malty aroma with a slight hint of hops. Caramel malt into mild coffee bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear, amber. Not much head. Aroma is treacle, bubble gum, banana. Quick finish, not a lot of flavor. Medium body. Rather odd.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear dark reddish brown. Not much aroma, but it smells slightly off. Not much flavor: a bit brown and watery. Quickly disappears from the mouth. A rather strange beer.
