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.

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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber with gentle bubbles and a good head. The nose closely resembles malt loaf. The taste is of cake mixture, initially, then creaminess and finishing with biscuits. The palate is at least medium bodied with a nice creamy texture and a clean but long finish. Overall, a really balanced and tasty ale.
