Mid-dark amber with a gentle aroma of English hops. Flavour is largely of toffee and is actually quite sweet. Medium bitter finish. Probably not a beer you could drink huge quantities of but fine in ones and twos.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From bottle (BBE:FEB16). Hopped malt aroma very attractive when first poured. Fine off white head with moderate retention and lots of lacing over clear deep copper beer. Low carbonated mouthfeel and quite dry with a solid balanced flavour of lightly sweet malt, herbal hoppyness. Liquid version of a leafy salad brown bread sandwich sprinkled with brown sugar. Long slightly astringent sweet malty finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. A deep copper, almost ruby, colour. Decent cream-coloured head of fine bubbles. Hints of caramel, english hops, and bread on the nose - all subtle but well balanced. Smooth with good body in the mouth. Slightly sweet toffee start, then a drier, slightly astringent finish. Not bad.
