2015-09-24. Crisp mahogany brown body with a nice foamy beige head. Aroma is mild, dusty malt, English malt character that I still lack a better deScriptor for, lightly fruity. Flavour is pleasant, nice malty core, good balancing bitterness light citrusy hops in the finish longer with hoppy bitterness. Smooth average bodied palate, soft carbonation. 3+ Nice stuff. On cask at Holborn Whippet, London, UK.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle from Turners Abbeydale Road - Dark nut brown body with a small light beige lacing head. The nose has a mild dark malty aroma. A little bit of coffee grunt and some herbal toffee stuff going on. Dark malty taste and a little bit of bitterness that dries the mouth on the finish. Got a bit boring towards the end.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle drank at Les Vignerons. (No proper tasting notes, overall impression only) Dark ruby red with a small light beige head. Mesmerizing and complex nose: hazelnuts, cocoa powder, watered down coffee. Very clean and inviting. Great drinkability, just enough taste to keep you interested. Mildly bitter, not too watery, a true session ale. Thumps up!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is very reminiscent of my own attempts at home brew, especially in colour, which I finished the last bottle of last week and I’m missing already. I think might’ve been that colour from caramelising the malt extract in the boil pot though. The colour is dark reddish brown with a light brown head. The aroma is warm and honeyish. The taste turns into bitter hoppy with a late slight malt flavour.
