3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2008 (Bottle) Pours a clear light brown to dark red colour with a small off white head. The aroma is of typical English beer fruitiness, rather raw with an apple/orange like character. The malty notes are nutty, mild chocolaty and a bit caramelly. Some light resiny and mild grass like hop tones. Bit white wine vinous on the nose. The flavour is light raw with mild resiny/grassy/spicy hops, caramelly/toasted malt, light white wine tart-ish and an orange and apple-ish fruitiness. The mouthfeel have a soft carbonation and quite a silky profile to back it up. Medium bodied. Aftertaste of smooth toasted and light caramelly malt alongside hints of grassy/resiny hops. If you have a good UK beer, please send it to me, otherwise I will continue to drink great US beer instead.
