2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Used to drink a lot of this. Looks the part, being a nice copper brown, yellowy foam head with lots of lacing. Aroma - not much. Taste is a lovely rich bitterness which fades to watery. Nice feel in the mouth. Pretty good aftertaste. It’s not amazing - just a good solid bitter. Like all Midlands beers, it has a hint of factory floor - but in a nice way.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Finally bought a bottle only to find out the beer has been retired since 2013... well then! No bottling date, so that wouldn’t have tipped me off, either. Aroma: Biscuit and moderate caramel with light honey and spicy wood. Appearance: Rich, translucent copper pour with a foamy tan head that fades into a sticky skin. Flavor: Nice melding of caramel biscuit and woody spice throughout, leading to a fairly dry, lightly bitter finish. Palate: Light body, slick texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: Probably somewhat removed from what the brewer intended at this point, but still a solid ale. Wish I could have tried this fresh.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma has hints of the draught version, but this seems over carbonated and thinner than the pints of it I have enjoyed in the past.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Intriguing aroma - woody and grassy. Reminiscent of carbonated piss in appearance but not too offensive. The pleasant aroma is drawing me in as I take a taster sip. Immediately I get cereal, apple, wood and grass tones balanced with tangy lemon. Moderate fizz. Sharp texture then smooth and comforting. Enjoyable experience.

Color bronce claro con generosa cabeza de espuma que desaparece rápidamente dejando una fina capa, aromas a caramelo, galleta, lúpulo y hierbas; en boca entrada media y maltosa con amargor equilibrado; cuerpo y carbónico ligeros, cerveza fácil de beber y bien balanceada con pos gusto un tanto amargo, seco y herbal.

Pours a clear dark amber color, topped with a small white head. A very mildy aroma, some caramel can be noted. The taste is slightly watery and sweet, tiny bittery feel and some nice caramel in the aftertaste. Smooth and easily drinkable.
