3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, Dodgy Deli, Oxford. Attractive mahogany pour, light tan head. Husky walnut aroma, pleasant touch of butter. Light caramel malt sweetness, pears, soft earthy hops. Very drinkable and easy going. Odd to see it listed as a strong. This would feel much more at home in Premium Bitter.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, poured a light brown/dark amber with a light tan bubbly head. What an aroma - there is definitely an apple tartness there, but also smokey and sappy as well, not to mention some caramal. Just makes you want to drink it. A pretty smooth palate that gets stronger and sharper through the swallow. The flavour is a little understated though, just some sweetish malt really - which lets it down.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark amber with no carbonation whatsoever. The aroma has notes of greene apples. Peel of green apples is the first note in the flavour and then roasted malt and a hint of licorice. The bitterness in the finish is adequate. This beer could have been a bit more interesting if it had had just a bit of carbonation.
