2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Tesco Winchester. Poured a hazy dark amber with a frothy white head and some broken lace. The aroma is resin hop, citrus. The flavour is medium bitter with a fruity resin light metallic hop palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. I’m feeling a little sorry for Gardeners right now. Hardly inspiring.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle form Beers of Europe. Amber gold pour with a short-lived white head. Aromas are caramel and grassy hops. Taste is a bit thin, more sweetness, but with a creeping slow bitterness at the back. Thin, light bodied, soft carbonation, short finish. Not very interesting, but definitely a thirst quencher.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
50cl bottle from the Hogs Back Brewery shop. Golden amber with a fast fading cream head; unfortunately the aroma is dominated by overstewed caramel malts; rather thin in the mouth with a sweet caramel malt body, and a hint of burnt sugar; and an incipid finish. Not great.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle: BBD Mar 2013, poured into a UK pint sleeve at home on 2 Apr 2013, so two days out of date!
Lovely looking beer for 30 seconds: bright amber/reddy brown/light mahogany body with a good but fast fading head. It then doesn’t look so great, just a collar and wisp sits on the fine body.
Fruity malt loaf sort of aroma with a taste to match: there is a drying bitterness towards the end of each sip but this is mostly a malt based fairly sweet beer and to my liking.
The body is almost rich in its depth and for a 4%ABV beer is impressive, a well made beer for sure.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Oddbins. Colour is chestnut brown, clear, white head and very carbonated. Nose is sugary and citrousy like the smell of R. Whites lemonade, then some barley boiled sweet. Taste is caramel, lemon, boiled sweet sugar, grainy, husky. There’s a million filtered brown bitters like this in England.
