3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light brown body with a massive 3” crown that’s stupidly long lasting. Aroma has slight soap, nice leather, with an abundance of yummy hop, even getting the odd hint of chocolate. Very nice so far. Great bitter flavor, nice earthy malts, awesome leather. What ells do you need in an English bitter?? Is that peach I’m tasting, because if it is…………………….At room temp beer got watery, but still good. I like this beer a lot, it is good.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at Craft Beer Co. on 2nd July 2011. Reddish copper with thin white head and initial lacing. Fruity, spicy and pungent aroma. Delightful combination of hop and smoke in-mouth; smoky bitterness continues into a long and enjoyable finish, on a zingy mouthfeel. Excellent.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle. Pours a dark amber with a red hue in places. There are steady bubbles and ther is a generous head. The nose is of pine against a background of coffee - it’s kinda cedary. The taste is more cedar and coffee. The structure is medium, there is a fairly creamy texture and a long fresh finish.
