3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Super Saver. Coppery pour with little head. Aroma of slight hopcit, heavy caramel malt and tannins. Tastes caramel malty, dry, tannic, with some finishing hops. Finishes liquid caramelly without much sugar. Not bad.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the bottle.
Pours dark amber with a veritable jellyfish storm of floaty bits and a scant head. The aroma offers some cracker malts; the flavor is mild, with a bit of floral hops, hints of smoke and whiskey, an endearing cracker malt, and a gentle dry finish.
From a bottle this is neither a standout nor even worth repeating, though it might be good to try on cask if in the mood for a mild bitter.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Bronze color with a small lid of beige bubbles. Earthy malt and light grass with a touch of toffee in the background. Seems to have a lightly peat flavor mixing with a wild honey flavor. An interesting ale, yet nothing beyond ordinary.

Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. Light malty, fruity aroma and a sweet very dry malty, hoppy taste. Medium body and a sweet very dry finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Easy going hoppy well balanced aroma. Taste is similar with the bittering hops having a wee play. An easy goign session ale.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Copper Coloring with White Skin. Many Particles Afloat. Some Fruit on the Nose, but Absent From the Taste. Pretty Watery Overall...But for a Light Hop Aftertaste. Not Much Here to Enjoy.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gold color with no head. Grains, grains, grains... and more grains. No hop, no malt, just a grain silo of dust.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
well, mine must be a fairly old bottle since this is much more about the malt than the hops, but was good. rich malty taste. perhaps a bit thin, but still good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
My undated bottle poured with a very high degree of sediment which leads me to believe it may have been a the shelf a bit long. All the same, this was an enjoyable quaff ... big-bodied sweet malty beer with a distinct tone of peat, light smoke and raisins. Different.
