330ml bottle. Copper-brown pour with a small off white head. Malty toasty aromas with dark chocolate and nutty notes. Taste is straightforward sweet caramel malts with a mild floral hop finish. Medium bodied with a spritely mouthfeel and the ABV well hidden. Goes down easily.

A good strong ale, tastes fantastic off the tap at Lord Nelson’s pub. My favorite beer there.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber in colour. Some slight roasty notes with a nice crystal malt character. Definately a malt driven style, very easy drinking. This is my first beer from the Lord Nelson, one I’ve wanted to try for quite a while and I enjoyed it, well brewed, good beer.

Pleasantly suprised with how smooth and drinkable the beer was. Poured Amber brown with a creamy tan head, a slight creamy sweet aroma, sweet taste with little bit of a bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark copper with ruby tints and a small head.
Nose shows faint malt with caramel and dark confectionery notes but unfortunately there’s a metallic hint. Later on some darker toasty notes become apparent.
Flavours are more focussed towards dark malt than the aroma with plenty of nutty chocolate malt but are still very sweet. Some spicy hops are noticeable and are followed by a gentle bitterness with some roasted character.
Carbonation is too high for the flavours in my opinion.
