3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle BBE: Mar ’16. Well-chilled. Pours a clear amber body, with small-medium, loose off-white head. Sweet, biscuity malt nose, very much akin to an English Bitter. Some grassy hop aromas, but fairly low intensity. A medium, honeyed sweetness and a light bitterness develop. The ale is light-bodied, with a thin, slightly foamy texture. Carbonation is medium-high and the finish gently sweet and fruity, but fairly short. Very much a traditional, English style pale ale. Well-made, with no off-flavours, but fairly bland and lacking anything noteworthy.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear copper colored, medium strong white head with good lacing. Aroma is malt, cardboard and some cooked veggies. Taste is low to moderate sweet malt, some biscuit, again cardboard, some lemon-grassy notes, and cooked veggies to top it off, low bitterness. Low+ bodied, moderate carbonation. Not very good, maybe a defunct bottle...
