3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Does what it says on the tin, or bottle in this instance. Malty, bit of fruit, hoppy finish. Chestnut coloured with hint of orange. Thin head and pretty decent lacing. Nothing particularly unique about this but very enjoyable. I will buy again. 500ml bottle poured into straight glass.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask at Paisley Beer Festival. A great name, but sadly the ale doesnít live up to itís namesake. Toffee taste. Definitely not a session ale - one more of them and Iíll vomit. Great with crisps or nuts, Iíd imagine.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a hazy medium brown with a frothy white head and some broken white lace, The aroma is dry, crisp, yeasty and malty. The flavour is medium bitter, slightly metallic on the palate with lots of bitterness and malt in the aftertate. Very drinkble & refreshing too. Deserves a slightly better rating IMO.

Bottled, 500ml fro Stirchley Wines & Spirits, Birmingham. Amber with slight head. This appeared to be really flat to me. Thin malts, a touch piney, a touch metallic. Toffee with some liquorice note, sweet and fairly dull. Not great.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle from Arden Wines. Wildly fizzing copper with a slim cream top. Yeasty, autumnal fruit on snout including plum, pear and strawberry, topped with custard. Eye-wateringly fizzy with Fruit Salad and overripe English apple notes; pear, strawberry. Some chaff and wholemeal in the finish. A touch of Belgian fruitiness, maybe. Narrowly the pick of a trio of almost interchangeable yeasty bitters from Mull.
