3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours copper amber colour, with out much head. Nice muddled hoppiness. I thought it was an English bitter at first, and it reminds me of one with a bit more malt to it. Pleasant.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orangy amber with beige head. Faint hoppy aroma. Metalic hop flavour and a weak body with mute bitters. I'd give the old leg over on this one and go to a different beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I dunno why I wrote this all confident and everything, but my note has "forgettable english session ale" like I even know. It's pretty nicely hoppy. Is that cascade? I dunno. What, fuggles? Anyway, they gotta darken the bottles, I dunno how well this stuff stands up to importation to the antipodes. Good malt thing going on otherwise. I'd have it again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
very yorkshire tasting toasty, nutty malt flavour, with herbal hop dryness and a creamy, juicy texture. not much in the way of esters. very similar to the greengrass but with a touch more roastiness. not bad at all.

Ambre Brown Ale, good colour and clarity, with toasted, nutty flavours. Easily drunk but you could do better from Yorkshire, try the Black Sheep.
