3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml can (4.7% ABV). Dark amber, pretty clear, with a big, fluffy and persistent dirty white head. Not much on the nose to be honest, it’s fairly malty, slightlly toasted, a quite subtle fruit reminiscence and a small wet grass presence in the background. Nothing offensive, but not too exciting either. Much, much better taste wise. Semi sweet upfront, and mildly bitter through the whole sip. Again malty and slightly caramel forward, herbal and bready aftertaste. Doesn’t linger very long but it’s clean and tasty enough. Refreshing and easy drinking but not too watery. Soft to average carbonation, light to medium body, creamy texture. A very decent beer considering the price. It reminds of many relatively cheap, easily available beers I would buy in my local off-licence when I was living in the UK.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark and slightly hazy copper with a very small head. Sweet and fruity aroma with malty notes too. Taste is sweetish at first with notes of malts, caramel and even some fruits. Finishes with a moderate touch of bitterness. Sweetish, but decent brew. (0,5 l can, best before 12 Feb 2015)

Bottle from morrisons. Drank on my last night in our old house whilst packing. Dark copper beer with small head and patchy lacing. Aroma of malts, caramel and some light treacle. Taste is treacle, malts, caramel and a little spice. Wasnt expecting this, better than cask. Good stuff.

Nice rich golden color, with a fine white head. Good lacing. Fresh fruity and herbal/mild citric hoppy aroma. Well balanced hoppy, fruity and malty taste. Lovely thirst quencher. Good session ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle in a Phnom Penh club, waiting for the rockabilly band to take the stage. Deep copper off white head lasts. Nose is Christmas pudding, flavour has some nice toffee and raisin, a bit sticky, like English ales of 2 abv points higher. Slightly oxidized but that kind of fits for this type of beer. Metallic aftertaste secures its rating as good rather than excellent.
