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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from morrisons. Aroma is spicey, slightly peppery good balance of pale biscuity malts and fruits. Taste is again a great balance of slightly richer malts than expected and floural hops. Nice one.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2009 Oct, 2007 500ml bottle from Morrisons. Thin barley sugar water and fizz. Hint of Dandelion & Burdock. Tastes more like pop than beer. Metallic notes. Why do brewers continue to pasteurise? Drinkable, but entirely unremarkable. [1.7]
July 2009 500ml bottle from Morrisons. Dark notes in a barley sugar infused standard British bottled pasteurised ale. Hop soaked, but not elegantly so. This is a typical old fashioned and dreary British bottled beer. This is the sort of thing that turns people to pale lager. They should stop producing it right now. [1.9]

Not bad - quite balanced, fruity, some earthy maltiness. Fizzy mouthfeel, lingering fruity, hoppy finish. not bad, just not very inspiring.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Amber brown with a large off-white head. Aromas are malty with some chocolate and weetabix. Also has raisin and citrus fruitiness. Flavours are sweeet toffee malts with chocolate. Very fruity - lemon and berrys. Flavours are intially good but fall away towards the finish. Still, its quite decent.
