2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. Light caramelly, light toasted maltiness, balanced by spicy hop notes but not bitter enough to balance the unexpectedly robust body and the light sweetness. Disappointingly spineless.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from Coppers, Newcastle. Copper-Amber coloured with a very thin white head of foam. It has a malty, earthy and nutty flavour followed by a red fruity and creamy caramel finish. Not bad, but too little flavour for the high ABV.
