3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2003 Rerate - Nitro can; frothy creamy head, dark copper appearance, creamy mouthfeel. Decent bitter flavor - bit of a medicinal taste to it though - better on draft. Original Rating 9/18/02 - 3.3 Had on tap at the local pub. Thick, rolling active pour. No real discernible aroma. Nothing really jumped out flavor wise - just your typical bitter - nothing to ding it for either.

creamy head on this one, light brown appearance. Pretty full flavored, very smooth with no carbonation. I wouldn’t get it again.

Nice bitter. Good overall stnad in glass, nice deep colour, interesting scent. Good hoppiness, although could have had more of a tart hoppiness.

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Rerate: London Heathrow Terminal. Rating suffers from being served in too smokey a bar. Probably because of this I could not detect any aroma - last time it at least cracked a 3/10. All other factors are more or less the same as the previous rate.
First Rated 8/5/02: Bathampton UK, 1.7 Dark honey gold colour with creamy off-white head longish lived head. Faint hops, musty, metallic, green sap aromas.Soft to medium body with what tastes like a touch of corn syrup in the rather bland bitter flavour. Weak, soapy, bitter aftertaste.

Excellent smooth creamy tasting bitter, enjoyed this immensely. Excellent throaty head, excellent pour. Taste was lighter then expected. However, will continue top buy in the near future.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smooth is the key word here. A thick creamy head bursting with flavor. But there isn’t much bitterness. I first tried this on a really hot summers day and was a little disappointed, buy it works much better in front of the fire a dark winter evening.
