3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. I had a sample of this when it first came out and was suprised how good it was (and the dark as well). My summer holiday beer and now one of the best íregularí beers in the supermarket although not readily available. Attractive amber hue, slowly diminishing medium sized creamy beige head, good lacing. Very nice aromas; malty caramel base, toffee, fruity especially marmalade, smokey, rocky shore/kelp, fresh leather, manuka wood shavings. Well balanced flavour profile; medium to medium strong bitterness, medium sweetness with a long duration. Medium body, creamy oily texture, soft carbonation, long velvety smooth finish. Pretty good Iíd say.

330ml bottle into pint glass. Subdued sweet malt nose. Copper coloured with sudsy white head. Many tiny bubbles. Full body, smooth and bitter in the mouth. The bitterness carries through to the finish. Late malt balances everything beautifully. Nice beer.

Acceptable for a cab off the rank Amber but nothing to write home about when compared with the likes of Sassy Red.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From bottle in shaker. Pours amber (no surprise) with aroma of toffee/caramel that carries through to the taste. Finish is smokey and spicy, unique amongst the ambers Iíve tried.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark amber colour with a micro-head and very little lacing. The major flavour is toasted malt with dark fruit and maybe some pine resin in the aftertaste.
No, but really what is Paleo water other than a catch phrase?

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle pours amber in color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and light fruits with some fresh hops. Taste is a fresh floral and citrus hop bitterness with a light fruity and malty sweetness. Light bodied with good carbonation that leaves a pleasant sensation on the palate. A well crafted amber ale that is both tasty and well balanced.
