Bottle -- Clear yellowy amber with large dense head with good retention and good lacing. Prominant aroma of malt and hops. Next to no carbonation (although my bottle is past its use-by date) and medium palate. The flavour is oh so English, with hops and malt again. Very nice beer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
oxidised, slight woody hop aroma, slight caramel tone on the nose.
Rich toffee and slight caramel taste, full medium bitterness, earthy tones.
Not all that exciting. There are better examples of bitter out there.
