3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A mid to dark, copper orange coloured beer with a thick off-white head. A predominantly malty nose, slight hint of caramel, toffee, then a well hidden hop aroma comes through with a touch of citrus. The taste is follows the pattern of the aroma, mainly malty elements, caramel, toffee, a touch of chocolate maybe, then a mildly zesty hop flavour comes through to give the finish a plesant dryness. (Cask - 2007 Cambridge Beer Festival).

Cask at The Anchor Inn, Oakerthorpe, Derbyshire. Amber in colour with a white head; fruity taste and a clean bitter finish. A fairly basic bitter, not as interesting as some of the other Cropton brews.

Bottle. This bitter has a nice copper color and no head at all, and the mouthfeel is completely flat. The aroma has notes of fruit just like the flavour, where I also find notes of caramel. It has a nice, citrussy bitterness.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Foggy copper orange body with a large white frothy head. The aroma is fresh - piney hops and sweet biscuit. Dry palate with an adequate hop profile and live carbonation. A bit too sour overall for what this is supposed to be.

Nice malt/hops aroma,light copper, pours a large off-white head. Subtle malt taste, sweet, almost cloying. A little less than hoped for. Thank You Michael @ Chesters in Hamilton!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange with a large white head. Sweet head with a hint of marmalade fruit. Malty flavour but a lot of sourness before the long lasting bitter finish. Drinkable but didn’t completely work for me.
