3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Live Rating. Pint bottle cool at home, served in an English pint. Amber brew, with a negligible off-white head, leaving lacing around the glass: bitter orange, toffee, and rust aroma. Floral hop flavour, digestive biscuit and a bitter orange astringency. Thin texture soft carbonation nice bitter finish. Just enough charm to avoid the dread "dull" label. An unspectacular but satisfying example of brown English bitter.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Home Bargains. Pours a golden colour with a thin soapy head. Very basic but drinkable session bitter. Mostly sweetish biscuit malt with mild hop backbone. Nothing special but drinkable and tasty enough for it’s strength.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On cask at the Wheatsheaf in Wetheral.
Appearance - amber with a lovely creamy head.
Nose - butterscotch I’m afraid but maybetit’s fudge.
Taste - more butterscotch and malt.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a slightly astringent finish.
Overall - not worth getting another.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml Bottle from Beers of Europe: drank at home on 2nd July 2014. Poured into a Bateman’s pint sleeve.
Clear amber to copper body with a full but fading off-white head. Nice blend of aromas and flavours, malts lead the way in both the nose and taste, lightly roasted, bread like in fact. The hops are there but in the background somewhat. Good depth of body for a 3.8% ABV brew.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: bread malts, not much else. Appearance: clear gold, small white creamy head. Taste: light sweet and bitter. Palate: bitters intensify, pushing the grainy malts into the background. Overall: sub-standard Bitter, just not liking the palate too much. Pint at William Rufus, Carlisle.
