3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber-coloured beer with a frothy head and aroma of caramel and floral hop. It’s lively on the tongue with a hit of spicy sweetness up front and the finish is bitter but a touch flat. Has a nice body to it though.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rusty pour with a very thin head. Aroma: all very faint. Hops, lemon, malt, grass and a small musty smell. Taste: initially pretty good but it turns almost stale. You get the hops, citrus and malt but it turns a bit sour, particulary when it warms.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Appearance: Dark orange. Little to no head. Aroma: Grassy, lemon, a little hoppy, quite grassy, caramel. Flavour: Caramel, spice, a little flat, some weird sweetness going on, sickly, grassy finish. I’m wondering was there something wrong with this bottle.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Half pint from cask at the Great British Beer Festival 2012. Clear dark copper colour, almost no head. ’Strange’ pine taste, with a hint of fruit. Dry and a little bitter. An alright drop, but seems previously to have been overrated. A bit watery.
