2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very nice colour of dark copper with a very thick almost white head. Thick enough almost to stand a pretzel in. A slight caramel aroma complemented with grainy notes. the taste starts out less than bold and dissappears fast to its bitter end. Very smooth and a slight bit watery. Very easy drinking.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This beer poured more of a dark golden color with a hint of ruby to it. Nothing much to say except the head stayed along the edge of the glass all the way down.

On Tap: Hard Rock Cafe, London. Light amber colored with a thin head. Has no flavor and no aroma. Like bitter water. Okay, maybe a little hops and malt. Finish sour and bitter.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very mellow, malty ale with a smoth hops flavor. Nice deep golden color with a small white, quickly disappearing head. Has a nice mouthfeel but leaves your mouth disappointed. Tastes and smells light and has a weak finish. I had this on draught and was okay with it but I won't order this one again any time soon. Not what I want in an ale.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2003 Amber color, nice creamy head. Aroma is sweet, maybe with some licorice? Flavor is from cocoa, a little thin, but leaves beutiful traces on the glass. Some bitterness in the finish.

Draught version tasted: amber color, medium head, and average taste. One of the most commonly found bitters in English pubs.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can. Big creamy billowy white head. Amber colour, little aroma, little flavour... Something in the aftertaste. Microscopic bitterness. At least I got an airmile for buying a can.

It's certainly smooth. Think if Guinness made a bitter. Not much on the taste, very creamy. Far better than your average swill, but that's about it.
