2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. It pours a hazy, dark golden body and a two-finger, off-white head leaving lacings. The aroma has a distinct touch of cooked vegetables, with some pine cones and caramel. Medium body, softly carbonated. The flavor is more on the fruity side, with caramel maltyness notes and some notes of orange and bitterness. An ordinary beer, but sure drinkable, even though I can’t see myself drinking it again. 130430

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle (Snow@CrisO)
Dry woody aroma. Some sweetness to that wood - a bit aged. Alas a bit farty in places. Quite English in style. Better than a typical Amber Ale, a style I dislike as they’re normally too sweet; but this is more highly attenuated. Easy and drinkable.
