3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle. Pours clear dark golden with small fine head. Sweet aroma of dough and caramel with a hint of banana. Taste starts sweet and a bit wheaty, after that caramel kicks in and the finish is slightly bitter. No sourness at all. Easy to drink, medium body, enjoyable but nothing special.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Middle Farm. It pours clear amber with a medium, foamy white head. The nose is toasty, wheat, brown bread, cereal and earth. The taste is bitter, earthy, toasty, mouldy bread, must, weetabix, earth and grassy hops with a drying finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Can’t say I love the style. Smells decent, but lacks some punch in the flavour department.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
50cl bottle picked up in Hastings. Amber-gold in colour with a fast fading cream head; the aroma has German hops, some light coriander spice and some musty grains; unfortunately the taste is a bit of a let down - stewed, slightly lactic, malts; then a rather sticky caramel finish. Probably a lot better as a cask ale!
