3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Again, this beer is one of the 26 bottles of my thirsty five b(eer)-day present. The aroma is of malt and pleasent alcohol, not aggressive. The head vanished quickly, as usual for hook norton beers. The color is of copper, brown and gold. The taste bitter and refreshing! I like that. A nice and medium lasting bitter finish. Full body. Definitely one of the better hook norton beers. I would drink this beer again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Brewdog Slovensko. Aroma is medium grassy hoppy, caramel, sugary, lemon. Clear golden to amber colour. Taste is light heavy hoppy, earthy, grassy, quite refreshing. Finish is zesty, grapefruit, earthy. Overall bitter. Drinkability is higher, body medium. Maybe a little bit overcarbonated for my taste, but not too much.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
0.5l bottle. This is a crystal clear one, deep champagne golden in color and it has a medium sized somewhat good looking foamy head. The aroma is more average, but itís really fresh. Some fruity nectar sweetness like juices from the silver birch. Some honey perhaps and traces of wet grass. Actually not that bad. It falls completely through in the taste unfortunately. Massively grainy, lots of boiled sweet corn and a sun-damaged flavor Iím not really found of. It has a medium oily mouthfeel and a soft to average carbonation level. A shame that little factor (the taste) was not so good. Other than that this was a nice beer. Nah, not for me. Strange this, a genre Iím actually enjoying less and less. 27.03.2013

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared with ClubGonzo. Pours a golden light amber colour with a small light beige head. Aroma of some caramel, hay and leather. Feels sweet at first and then a little dry. The flavour is still sweet and malty with grassy hops and something herbal. A bit dry aftertaste. Slick mouth feel, and has a light to medium bitterness. An okay premium bitter, but maybe too one dimensional.

It is a good ale. You can taste a bit bitterness but it soon balances with a light fruity end. Medium body.
