2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber with a tight off white head which lasts quite well and clears from sides of glass. Malty Aroma with no trace of hops that I could detect. Flavour is quite bland with a mild biscuity taste and a very slight bitter finish. Not unpleasant but not memorable

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. An amber coloured beer with some small off-white bubbles for a head. The aroma is fruity and a little nutty, maybe even a hint of licquorice? Very dry taste, again hints of nuts. Earthy hops. Doesn’t taste pasteurized to death, but still only average.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle form Morrisons. Dark brown with ruby highlights. Almost no aroma, a hint of malt and no more. Flavour had red fruit, some caramel and a slightly sweet finish. Bottling appears to have done this beer few favours.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pretty average this - more malt than hops in taste, which isn’t a good thing and a little sweet for my liking. Quite biscuity - overall: OK.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2009 Raspberry jelly red with a beige slick. Aroma of toffee and marzipan, faint background jellied fruit with a rub of hopcone. Lingering biscuit, caramel, malted milk, marzipan, fizz and tedium. No hops, trace of dark fruit. Soporific, half-tasty bitter flash boiled and filtered to death.
