2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle picked up at The Ship in a Bottle, Liverpool and shared with rating friends back home. Creamy white head to a clear amber coloured body. Dotted spots to the glassware. Earthy malt to the nose. Lightly roasted, semi-sweet malty taste, notes of caramel and grain. Malt bitter ending. A straightforward, all malty brew (Tromsø, 16.04.2013).

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Bronze with a small head. Low carbonation and quite malty with a bitter finnish. Pleasant but nothing exceptional. Did not meet the expectations that I had of it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle courtesy of deanso. Golden brown pour, broken white head. Hint of malt in the weak aroma and a malty spicy bitter, slightly metallic flavour that really doesn’t do a lot for me. One to avoid it must be said.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle - Golden in colour. Malty; sweet malts. Hoppy; slight hop bitterness. Very bland. Boring. Very disappointing!

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Asda, Manchester. Amber-brown with next to no head. Much better than I remember the cask version being, although still without any wow factor. Not much of the expected bitterness with a very light sweetness.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle - amber pour with a ridiculously sized "ice-cream float" style head. The aroma of the malt comes through straight away, but not much else. Despite this, a neat crisp taste with a little yeasty after bite. Much better than I expected.

50cl bottle shared with JmGreenUk.
Thin white head. Clear amber pour. Inoffensive beer, nothing special.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber with a light thin white head. Smells of toasted malt, yeast, light fruit and caramel. Medium oily body. Tastes of toadted malt, biscuit and caramel that is stronger than the bitter leaf finish. Enjoyed it watching a film. Nothing noticed but not much special. I like it.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dull brown colour - almost like rusty water. Small head that disappeared completely. No lacing. No stand out flavours or aroma. Pierre White is highly respected for his food - unfortunately his beer will do his standing no good at all. Very poor.
