3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden, Amber colour, small white head, quite carbonated, tastes different from the first one that I had and remember. That was the distinctive tastes but this one tastes more like Stella to me? Have my taste buds changed that much? Anyway the lacing quickly recedes and there is a nice mouth feel. Bottle from waitrose.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden amber with white head, which dissipates quickly . Scent is faint, of caramel and vanilla. Taste offers a blend of sweet caramel, vanilla, and oak. On the palate, only the taste of caramel and toffee remain. Average carbonation, and mouth feel is relatively light without becoming watery. Overall, better than your average beer and highly drinkable, but not anything exceptional.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
As clear as the bottles it comes in. Caramelized malt, toffee. Spicy hops with a touch of citrus. Cloying sweet finish. Not super skunky, but the skunk is lurking. I don’t know why brewers let the marketing guys take control of packaging in ways that hurt the product.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle in a bar at Edinburgh. Pours dark copper with a little head. Aroma is definitely affected by aging; it has both vanilla and toffee in abundance. The taste is sweet and full of notes of oak and vanilla, also some pale malts in the background. Medium bodied, averagely carbonated palate. This is indeed original, interesting take on the English Strong style.
