3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear deep amber color. Smells bitter and nutty. There is a walnut bitterness to the taste that fades quick. The palate is left with a slight coating of the flavor of the sip.

A nice foamy head that release lots of malty aromas. A reddish brown ale with a creamy mouth feel. Hints of chocolate and honey, a very smooth drinking beer.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A little rough. Smells like nothing, pours amber without head or lacing and tastes like tin with some malt that ends in a sour way. Nothing to see here folks - keep on walking. On tap at The Beagle.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Solid looking beer. Full flavour beer...elements of coffee, metallics, some kind of fruit, roasted peanuts. Aroma is mild, dull, non-offensive. Light lingering bitterness that I did not expect. Daaaaaa what is this fruit in the taste? Some shorter uglier reviewers say apricot.... I can’t disagree. Fizzy feel. Caramel like sweetness arrives when room temp. Completely drinkable beer but it’s from a style that just doesn’t do it for me.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Part of the Pity 6 pack given to me by someone much less beautiful than I. Solid amber with a small fizzy off white cap and a bit of lacing. Bit of deep caramel, toasty almonds, faint apricot, hint of metallic notes. Decent flavour, almost too fizzy but not quite. Caramel, light fruit, mellow bitterness that hangs briefly, actually the dull bitterness hold up on the last half. Dry. If I actually enjoyed this style I’d probably like this. But that ain’t the case today.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
White head settles to a ring, nice dark amber colour. Aroma gets the caramel/crystal malts, bread/biscuit. Mouth-feel medium-full, perfect carbonation very flavourful bread/malt and surprising chocolate notes. Not a heavy beer but has heavy characteristics like lasting finish. Very tasty, balanced beer. I can see how this is their top-seller.

Deep amber pour. Aroma is caramel and toasted malts. Taste is the same. Medium bodied, decent amount of flavour and a light bitterness on the finish. Easy drinking.

Reddish Brown with a frothy head. Very aggressive carbonation. Can’t miss the toasted malt on the nose. Heavy on the palate, bitter finish.
