3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy dark amber color with a small head that fades to traces of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel and nutty with some fruit and bit of spice in the background. Tatse of roasted malt, some caramel sweetness, bit of nuts and fruit. Mild bitterness and a quite dry finish. Moderate body and quite smooth. Decent drinker, fairly average for the style.

1/2 at the Tilly Stone Gateshead Brown beer with a white head A bit fruity, a bit bitter, like an English bitter from Central Casting. In no way offensive or unpleasant, but I was bored halfway down, even with a half, hence the just above half mark scoring.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
[Cash at The Christopher Creeke (JDW), Bournemouth] Amber with a moderate cream head and a light sparkle. Caramel and cream are the main flavours in this unassuming bitter, with a light woody note and a mild bitterness. Thereís not really a lot to it; nothing offensive, but nothing memorable either. Itís your archetypal boring brown bitter, but the creamy mouthfeel makes it less refreshing than some of itís compatriots.

(Bottle) Clear coppery brown with thin tawny head. Aroma is sot caramel with a hint of spice. Medium body and fairly fizzy. Flavour is gentle, mainly caramel lay malt with some nuttiness and a tiny hint of bitterness in finish. Overall itís a pleasant easy drinking beer, but nothing special.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looks good with thin beige head atop a copper-brown body with red highlights. Mild aromas of malt and a little spice. Taste is driven by smooth malt, with sweet caramel coming through. Light bitterness kicks in toward the end, leaving a fruity aftertaste. Well rounded and easy to drink. Pretty good really.
