3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2006 On draught at the brewpub in Borough. Clear, chestnut brown with a small, but stable off-white head. Very hoppy nose with notes of citrus. Flavours start with caramel sweetness, but is balanced by citrussy hoppiness, ending quite dry. Rather soft. Another highly enjoyable beer from this microbrewery.
Rerated Sep 2006: On draught at Brew Wharf as Meantime Union. Sweet caramel flavours with some nuttiness. Less impressed. (4-3-6-3-10)

Tap @ Greenwich Union Pub. Has a little bit of red body in this drop but more tawny brown. Malt characters in the taste that last but little else. Ok.

Draught at Brew Wharf, Southwark, London. Bright. mid brown colour. Some debate about what style this was. Seems our gbest guess of Vienna was right. Plenty of dry malt on the nose and palate. Straightforward but pleasant enough.

Beautiful amber color; creamy head. Nice malty aroma, almost fruity. Medium body (less malty than expected), lacking any complexity, very simple final as well.

Tap@Brew Wharf, Borough, London. Quite decent. Served a bit too cold. Nice nutty caramel, slightly toasty flavours come through as it warms, touches of berry fruit. Slightly stale, dead mouthfeel, otherwise OK.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg at Brew Wharf, Borough. Always happy to go against the grain and so I find myself doing so on this one. Dark brown, chestnut colour, lasting light beige head. Really nice malty aroma with red fruits and toffee. These flavours carry on to the finish which is very drying and gives good balance to the toffee.
