2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Deep golden, nesrly clear, small lacy off-white foam, sweetish bready-fruity nose, some lazy hops underneath; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied and a bit sticky; sweet bready-malty finish, accompanied by only a very subdued hoppiness. Not too bad, but way too much on the sweet side…

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. I bought this under the impression (judging by name and label) it’d be a (India) pale ale or of similar ilk so was mildly disappointed to find it not the case. Poured a clear copper-amber with a modest one-finger off-white to light beige head and a slow fade. Caramel, OK malt and mid fruits in there but a fair grassy, subtly resinous bitterness presides. Light to medium body, medium-ish carbonation and a decent endurance to the finish. So, it’s not quite a (I)PA or similar, but it is a competent bitter. Bottled 25/06/13 so pretty fresh.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Beautiful bottle pours out clear dark brown / dark amber coloured beer with low steady head and medium body. Nose of bitter hops. Taste of spicy hops, dark bread, malt, nuts, whiskey, torf and vanilla. Hints of woods and basement aromas, but very fresh and light. Really easy and nice to drink with a nice balanced bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear dark gold, fluffy head. Decent faximile of an English bitter. Malty, but the hops do not feel 100%. Flowers, peaches, dust, dry tail. A fresh bottle is probably much better.
