3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Morrisons. Pale amber. Fruity resinous hop aroma, with biscuity malt. Loses a little in the mouth, doesnít finish with the long hoppy smack the aroma would lead you to expect. Fair.

Bottle in Manchester.
Pleasant malty body, nice citrus hoppiness - a refreshing beer. Enjoyable, but not overly complex. A cask version would be nice. Sweet fruit in the finish.

A Mes rate: Bottle at the Three Crowns, Macclesfield.
Dark gold with a thin white rim. Tobacco hoppage, caramel malty notes. Plenty of bread. Characteristic Holts maple syrup. Intense hoppy flavour? I donít think so. Iíve had worse though.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cheap in my new local, prefer some of the other Holts beers though. It smells like an ashtray with a load of liquorice rizla spliffs dimped out in it, fortunately it doesnít taste like it. £1.95 in a pub, not bad that. Got a toffee, caramel, syrupy kind of thing going on, not too much sweetness. Nice enough and I did enjoy it when I didnít get the smell. Just let down by the smell of an old peoples home though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Golden amber with a dense white head;slightly stewed caramel aroma with a hint of citrus; initially dry and hoppy, then developing a chewy, jammy, sweetness, some citrus flavours, kumquat perhaps, leaving a sticky finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Warm golden with a huge and nice head. The aroma has notes of fruit, caramel and the flavour is fruity with notes of caramel, roasted malt, nuts and a refreshing citrus bitterness. Itís both very light and refreshing - but it also has a nice and full body, just like the others I tasted from the brewer. A clear recommendation!
