2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I liked this even with it,s wartery taste, very mild with little after taste, this is something I would drink cold to quench a thirst. Got a few bottles from B&M and would get some more if in stock. Clear body but again head didnít last very long bit to fizzy for an ale in my mind.

Bottle from local offie. Golden amber beer with small head. Aroma is a little hoppy. Taste is mild bittering hops, malts and caramel with a hint of fruit. Watery. Below average bitter, but good enough to drink a few on a night.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 ml brown bottle, nice label, 4.7% abv, bought at Eurospar.
Scents of hops, and then sweet malts.
Persistent off-white tight head on the amber golden body.
Taste; hops, bitter, roasted malts, grapefruit.
Grainy to palate, a bit soapy. Ending with bitter malts, smoked wood.
Overall this is a more bitter bitter than the less bitter bitters Iíve tasted before. Goes down slowly, and better with food, dinner, barbecue a.s.o.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml Bottle. Its aroma is almost vinegary to start with and thereís very little else present: maybe a slight hint of malt but to find it you have to almost snort the thin white laced head.. if it doesnít disappear 1st. It tastes slightly better with biscuit malts to the fore but it has a watery and again vinegary acid finish. I donít think Iíll be picking this to make up a multibuy saving again.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Too watery, unpleasant color, fizzy and thin. Thereís better beer around in Cumberland, thank God. The artwork is acceptable, though lacking any originality.
