3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled Small frothy off-white head that fell to thin layer after 5 minutes; hazy medium amber color. Aroma was of caramel malt with some fruitiness and a bit of diacetyl. Flavor started nicely with a very present off-dry caramel malt character. Woodiness emerged mid-palate layered with some fruitiness and a hint of butterscotch (diacetyl). Finished with a yeasty-breadiness that lasted into the aftertaste. An interesting, pleasant wine-like astringency was evident throughout. Medium bodied with spritzy carbonation and a drying astringency. A most interesting special bitter. Along with the typical caramel malt aroma and flavor was a pleasant vinous character: a fine acidity with a drying astringency. This wine-like character combined with the nice bitter/sweet balance made for a good session ale that held my palate’s attention. It would be nice to try this on handpump.

Overall a very easy drinking bitter, proper session ale, but nothing very interesting. High marks for drinkability, but rather middle of the road beer nonetheless.

Uklar rødbrun med tynt hvitt skum. Lukter veldig malt...Sitter igjen med masse malt i smaken også. Noe tam og tynn. Ikke en innertier for å si det sånn...

Mørk gyllen gul, klar med tynt hvitt skum som forsvinner raskt. Aroma av humle og litt karamell. Litt metallisk i smaken, men det er søtlig med honning, urter og malt. Medium kullsyre, god bittersøt ettersmak.

Souer cider(?) aroma and also taste is bit fizzy cider notes what is strange. Pale bitterness and watery aftertaste. Long lasting head as a suprise.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma - the malts have a caramel quality about them and the light amount of hops have a floral nature.
Appearance - clean amber body, with a 1 1/2" frothy white head that eventually simmers out into a nice white ring with a little foam residue on top of the body. Really great lacing all the way down the glass.
Taste - caramel dominates, with mild hops that give the taste a peppery spice - a little watery on the body
Palate - the body is light; the texture is thin; the carbonation is average on the palate; the finish is somewhere between sweet - light bitterness - and a malty tanginess.

Pours a light brown with a small off-white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of English malt which has slightly sour earthy notes. Taste is equally sweet and bitter with balance throughout. The Southfield is light and the bitterness is mild. Excellent
