2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light amber colour. The aroma is soft, malty bitter. Light body, soft, very English with a malty character, touch of diacetyl and a creamy cask finish. Underhopped, though.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Strong on the nose, weak on the tongue. A fine drinking Ale, with enough hops to make it easy and, Belgian (?) style yeast.

This is a strong aroma beer. But very smooth and not as heavy. No heart burn or hang over

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draft at brewpub. Amber with scattered lace
Bland nutty malt aroma with late plastic. The palate is oily and laden with butter but yields to a toffee and lightly toasted malt finish

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(On tap) Beautiful clear amber colour with a small, off-white head. Sweetish aroma of caramel, fruit and nuts. Medium body, a little low in carbonation with sweetish - almost exotic - fruit accents. Smooth and lightly hoppy finish. 040508

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Amber with fluffy, but white, minimal head. Yeasty, fruit aroma. Biscuit and subtle fruit tastes with a good, dry finish. Somewhat "thin", could do with more body.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Pours copper in color with a brief head. Fruity aroma. Sweet dates, mild citrus, accompanied by a toasted barley subtlety. Has a toffee-ish malt character, light prune suggestions, and a rounded mouth feel. Toasty with a mild bitterness, yet it’s lacking hop character in my own opinion.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy amber with a minimal head. Initial aroma smells a bit of Belgian-type yeast, but subsides to fruity orange and some chewy malt. The flavour is a bit meek, showing some light bitterness. Light bodied and a bit metallic, but lasting and well carbonated.
