Bottle shared by ippopotamo36 (thanks Alberto!). Pours amber with a minimal off-white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, butter, biscuits, burnt sugar. Flavour is sweet, unbalanced, unpleasing. Light body, medium carbonation. Almost undrinkable.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
At the multi-national tasting held in Rome-Italy on 29/08/2015 (Jow, Mortlach, ippopotamo36 and Marco). Bottle courtesy of Sylvan, thank you. Pours caramel clear color, some small head. Nose: burnt brown sugar, caramel far away. Mouth: too frizzy in my opinion, not a real taste but a confusing caos of caramel flaws.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Stable creamy foam. The aroma is caramel malt and light fruit. Tastes slightly burned malt and caramel. The hops are soft and gentle. Lovely mild ale with a clear idea to the UK breweries. Mouthwatering and delicate.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
1) Tap, Mdina, Malta. Bright bronze streaming steadily with a dispersing white cap. Aroma of not much, raffia table mat again, pine cone. Better flavour with appreciable flecks of boiled sugar citrus, dunked English biscuit, almost pecan afters, toffee popcorn, red berry boiled sweets. Pleasant enough drab bronze bitter with suspicions of flavour.
2) Can. Mad fizzing copper moussed with white. Rusty nail and butter biscuit aroma with glue and dried grass as it warms. Again boiled sweet caramel, Werthers, rust, hint of Tunes, a suspicion of citrus. Maybe it was Blue Label in Mdina after all. Actually not bad if anachronistic, drably old school English and ill suited to quaffing in these climes.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can share at Leighton’s. Many thanks to Paul and Lorna for this Maltese pale mild - it’s not every day you try one of those. Hazy dark orange, still, small dense foamy off-white head, full lacing. Aroma is toffee, burnt sugars, some mint and background orange. Body is light, spritzy carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is light cardboard malts, pale grains, sodawater with a light finish. A great one to try, but not a great one to drink ... if that makes sense.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2015 Can shared in London - many thanks to Paul and Lorna. Pours clear gold with a frothy white head. The nose has nips of cardboard, light caramel. Light sweet flavor with definite oxidation, more cardboard, faint dry caramel, leathery berries. Light bodied with average carbonation. Papery finish, some dry bread, some wood. So so.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear amber color, topped with a rather small white head. Mild malty aroma with some fruity, citrusy notes. Taste starts mildly sweet, some caramel perhaps, with moderate bitterness later on. Not bad, nothing special either.
