2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from SH Jones Wines, Leamington. Clear fizzing copper with a persistent white foam. Lightly buttered raffia aroma with hints of nuttiness. Watery with faint toffee, aniseed and toffee streaks. Just another middling, middle of the road mid-brown bitter from the middle of England I’m afraid.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, shared by fonefan. A clear, dark golden beer topped by a small, off-white head. Malty, meaty nose with some oxidation hints and a hint of piney hops. Sweet, malty flavor with some hops giving a little bitterness. Medium body. Some metal hints in the otherwise mostly bitter and fruity finish. Not my favorite indeed. 100814
