3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle from Dan Murphy’s liquor store. A clear copper-brown beer with a medium off white head that stabilises to a firm collar. Caramel malts dominate the nose with soft floral hoppy notes. Palate is smooth and rather oily with sweet malt flavours and a decent hop bitterness. Medium-light bodied with a low carbonation making for easy sessionability. An enjoyable English style bitter that is currently quite cheap for an imported beer in Australia.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a clear dark amber with a big frothy, typically English bitter head. The aroma is of malt, but not particularly strong. The flavour is hugely malty with some smooth medium bitterness on the palate. A superb ESB and very drinkable for a session.

Clear copper pour with a light-brown head that disappears quickly. An aroma of hay and caramel. Medium bitterness with a bit of sweetness. Medium bodied, thin slightly slick texture with a soft carbonation what is fizzy on the tongue. Long finish with a good bitterness. A lovely ale.
