2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A spicy and lightly vinegary nose. In the mouth come big savoury wood flavours. I think this could be off actaully cidery and full of mulling spice flavours.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
[500ml bottle-conditioned from Larners, Holt, Norfolk] Pours pale amber-orange with a large, frothy white head. Overly fizzy. Sweet, fresh fruity aroma. Taste is strangely different to the aroma - a biscuitty malt with a slightly spicy, bitter finish. Quite bland actually, and the fizziness was annoying.

Cask at Luton BF ’09. Gold with a small white head. Strong fruit aroma: mandarin orange and blackcurrant. Rather lovely effect as sweet maltiness developed. Grainy malt taste and a mid bitter finish. While there are a lot of good things here, the final result didn’t quite work for me. Not sure why.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I also tried this at Peterbrough and found it to be a light amber colour, malty character and a, very dry, resinous spicy note.

Tried this at Peterborough. Very impressive for a first beer, good colour, lovely hoppy aroma (lots of fuggles I think?) and a genuine bitter taste. Well-rounded overall
