3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Half pint poured at the Greenwich Union in Greenwich (London), a clear dark amber with a light tan bubby head. Too cold to note any aromas, maybe some light caramal. Chocolately flavours abound, combining with a hoppy bitterness, followed by a clean finish. Nice.

Copper clear, thin head. Smells of hay, malts and burned. Taste is medium malty, some sweetness, dry feel. Good bitter finish. Just a little boring that’s all

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[330ml bottle, The Bottle, York] Pours highly carbonated, swiftly dispersing head with a regular rising carbonation. Clear caramel brown copper colour, little hop aroma. Gentle, subdued flavour - very dry, little hops but some malt to balance out. A smooth easy drinker. The prime character is malt, with a caramel flavour that peters out very quickly indeed and finishes quite thin. It’s a good approximation of a style, but not a great style. Interesting Ray Richardson label.
