3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. Rich honey and cake fruit aroma, including cherry maybe some red apple skin in there too, and some wet stone I seem to associate when sniffing many English-style ales. Brite; lovely deep colour, topped with a thin but persistent off-white head. A beaut to look at. Has a fruity punch, but it is the nice long clean bitterness that stands out flavourwise for me. A very moreish brown.

Dark amber in colour, almost white head. Floral aroma and very slightly citrusy. Toasted, roasty taste. Dark caramel sweetness from the crystal malts but balanced with a nice bitterness.

Pours dark amber orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of caramely malts, toasty notes, hints of nuts and butter. Taste is smooth, malty and bitter with some caramel, nuts and sweetness. Finish is sweetish and bitter with some maltiness. Okay amber ale.

malty aromas with yeast and toast. Tastes bitter and not really sweet. It has a nice amber colour but not head al all. Too much bitter Taste for me. It has to be improved!
