3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. An amber coloured beer with a hoppy aroma with fruity notes of tangerines and oranges, but also a bit of a stale sulphuric backdrop. The taste has good hop character but also some maltiness at the end. A good effort but really doesn’t taste particularly fresh.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2011 Burns Night, 2005 Bottle. Caramel, orange and fragrant hops. Marmalade. Quite nice. Some boiled sweets in the after-taste. Not over-fizzed. Flaws start to creep in, but certainly pleasantly drinkable. The upfront sweetness masks most of the stale flavours. [2.8]
Burns Night, 2006 Bottle. Plenty of hops in this Export (the Scottish name for a Best Bitter). Clean and bitter. Wakes the appetite. [2.8]

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, from Sainsburys. Amber, good thin but lasting white head and good condition. Low caramel and pleasant hop aromas in the nose, slightly fruity in the mouth with a hint of roastiness and good developing hop flavour. More fruit and caramel sweetness in the finish with a pleasant hop bitterness.
