3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Amber-orange color. Steady soapy off-white head. Clean English Ale aroma, light hops. Mellow and creamy, soft carbonation. Very balanced, with a biscuity malt body and a steady, but never overly intense, hop flavor. I get some deep caramel malt notes, not unlike a nut brown, in the finish. A nice session beer, well done.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 25 ounce bottle into an imperial.
Pours a honey color with a moderate head that leaves decent lace. Moderate cloud.
Aroma is of tannins and mineral rich water. Tea like aroma with a bit of bready malt backing.
Flavor is bright malt with a slight caramel flavor. Mineral content of the water gives the typical English ale iced tea flavor. Mild hop bitterness is slightly floral and somewhat fruity with a touch of honey and pineapple.
Mouthfeel is medium with a nicely structured carbonation.
Good session bitter for the price.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweet malt aroma. Nice light floral hop aroma. Poured a hazy amber color with medium, but long lasting head. Gentle hop bitterness mixes nicely with the malt flavor. After the initial malty sweetness goes away, a very strong hop flavor comes through. The sharp hop flavor lingers a long time. Medium body with with a lot of hops that masks the low carbonation. Good beer. More hop bitterness than I expected.

Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy medium amber with a foamy white head. Aroma is very floral. Medium body with sharp but foamy carbonation. Flavor is light stone fruit, light citrus, mild roast malt, and a lot of florality. Smooth. Sensuous. Could drink this forever.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle on 1/5/10.
pours cinnamon-y iced tea colored and clear with a barely off white head.
the aroma is a touch catty at first... it opens up to show caramel, fruit (peaches maybe), florals, grain, herbaceous-ness and earthy spice.
the flavor is the same as the aroma but with a spiced dry finish and a touch of malty sweetness.
the medium body feels like it is missing something in the middle but it is certainly easy to put away. 6/3/6/3/13/3.1
