This one to me is a drink and forget beer. Scores a little bit under par. Bottle looks classy though.

500ml bottle. Poured a deep coppery amber with effectively no head. I was surprised to find out this was supposed to be a bitter as the bitterness was rather mild. Good maltiness with a certain je ne sais quoi I couldn’t quite put my finger on. Overall it was a decent beer but nothing memorable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle from Waitrose. Clear brown colour, no head. Malty aroma, bit thin in mouth, not great carbonation. Some maltyness throughout. Touch of dryness. But its overall a touch dull and the mouthfeel leaves a bit to be desired.

I bought this thinking a smaller English brewery might make a better pint than the poor stuff from their larger breweries. I was wrong. Typical weak, tasteless, watery English beer. Not unpleasant but merely drinkable and bland.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle from LCBO. D’akujem môjmu otcovi!) Kvapalina má medenú farbu. Pena je malá a stealth. Nos je ovplyvnený veľmi mierne sladov, ktoré vrhajú tieň s anglickým chmeľom. Chute sú rovnaké, zle vyvinuté s sladká sladu a chmeľu len hryzenie. V ústach, telo je nízka, s normálnym vzrušenie a textúry pomerne tenké. Povrchová úprava je mierne horký, a pripomína všetkým ESB som pil až doteraz.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Waitrose. Pours copper with a creamy light beige head. Moderate ripe fruit aroma - sort of plum/cherry mix. Flavor is fruity/malty sweet at the beginning, and it does not develop a great deal of bitter. But there’s enough bitter to balance eventually. It seemed to start rather heavy, but it didn’t turn out that way. Sort of a different beer, but it drinks right well.

New beer found at the LCBO in a pint size bottle. Poured into pint glass sort of reddish amber color, got a decent head from it. Not much floral notes, hint of some spice. This is an acceptable drinkable beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Not ruby at all. Amber in fact with whitish bubbles. A malty beer with earthyand leafy notes as well. A bittersweet, old fashioned taste. Drinkable enough and has a long finish, but it’s a bit dull.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle. Pours a red amber, large white head with huge carbonation - quickly turns a to a light white lacing. Aroma of cereal, mild yeast (more like a lager but maybe its because its an organic beer) and sugars - not offensive but not pleasant either. Very light, metallic taste, nothing stands out in the flavours but finish is somewhat dry. My stretch of poor organic beers continues - maybe one day I will try one I like. So far though...nope.
