3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured murky copper with a small and relatively short lived head. Sweet oak and marmalade in the aroma, and a nicely balanced flavour with touch of bitterness to spice it up. A bit of a bite on the tongue from the carbonation, but the medium bodied palate is quite pleasing. I enjoyed this beer more towards the end, which isn’t always the case with the 1/2 litre bottles.

A quite hoppy beer that lends it a rather bitter feel. A strong taste that lasts pretty long. Has a slight yeasty flavour as well.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted this one at a beer festival in Leederville, Perth, and I am sure it may have been the first festival of its kind here so I thank the people who attended. Poured a clear, copperish gold with a short soapy white head that left some legs. Floral, noble hop nose, quite grassy with a balance of toasted malt and toffee. Quite delicate in the mouth; medium in body and very soft in carbonation that bordered on being soapy. The palate was a simple balance of lightly toasted and medium sweet grainy malts with a good whack of grassy, flowery hops in the back before a lightly bitter swallow. Overall, I didn’t mind this one, I have a soft spot for Daleside and this seemed like a well crafted, easy going thirst quencher so it started the day off nicely. Cheers!!!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange-brown amber with more of a soapy film than any kind of head. Really nice nose of grassy hops and sweet smelling lightly roasted malt. Perfectly carbonated palate with rich malt flavour, fresh hop character a nd a crisp bitter finish. Just the kind of ale I like!

I thought Daleside’s Ripon Jewel was outstanding. This is also pretty good. Bottle. Amber colour with a small head. Aroma of toast and marmalade malt. Slightly too much fizz, but a pleasant sweet maltiness in the taste gave way to a medium bitter finish.

(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a hazy amber with a tiny, off-white head. Malty, lightly caramelish aroma. The body is medium with plenty of malt and a caramelish sweetness. Discreet hoppiness in the finish. Smooth and quite pleasant drinking. 210406
