3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle- Pours a dark amber color with a decent tan head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, nuts and a hint of caramel sweetness. Taste of roasted malt with some caramel sweetness and a bit of nut flavor in the background. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Medium body, smooth with a decent balance. Fairly average brown ale but still good for a couple.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 330ml bottle on 14/8/2011.Pours a very cloudly dark amber with almost no head. Has quite a distinct caramel toffee malt aroma. More caramel and toffee sweetness is evident in the flavour, but the most prominent feature is a strong almost burnt, roasty bitterness. Reading the other reviews on here makes me wonder whether I’m drinking the same beer. A good ale with quite a bit of character.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Warners at the Bay. Pours a clear copper/brown with a small beige head. Aroma was a light roasted caramel and toffee. Taste was a slightly hop and nut combo, with a light roasted flavour. Not very impressive, but drinkable i suppose.

Thick brown colour, with a small beige head that dissapears quickly. Roasted toffee elements to the aroma, which follow through to the flavour. Roasted flavour lasts to the after taste. Plesant beer.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours copper with a large fluffy beige head that settles to an inch. High bead. Very modest aroma of a little cereal and caramel. Taste has some crystal malt sweetness and a fair bit of spicy hop bitterness. Spicy finish. The malt’s a little simple and subdued and there’s too much carbonation, but it’s OK.

Lovely mahogony color. Huge head. Filled the whole glass very quickly. Not much on the aroma front. Perhaps a little malt but not much else. Tasted of a little malt and a little yeast though overall very bland. Good mouthfell. A little fizzy and some malt sweetness. OK . A bit lacking with not much happening at all.

2.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Little aroma at all. Minimal head that dissipated almost immediately. Strong malty flavours which are balanced well by the bitterness. A decent session beer.
