3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle at the Greenwich Union, 24th July 2010. Russet colour with a fast vanishing white head. Light, with the weight of a lager, but malty and fruity on the tongue. Some hints of red fruits on the nose. Dry finish with even a hint of tobacco. Goes down surprisingly well.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught, at the Greenwich Union, London.
Amber, nectar coloured body with a fine, almost creamy head, that faded away before really appreciating it. Good malty notes on the nose. Well round flavour, that covers all the bases. Good, medium and well balance palate. Despite SilkT's comments this was the best on the day for me (a different session mind).

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

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Complex Vienna style lager. Have to be honest that this style is not one I’ve generally been keen on. Colour is an inviting copper light brown. Aroma is toasty malt. Taste is sweet malt and grassy hops and finish has nuttiness to it. A flavoursome lager but probably not to everyone’s taste.

Draught, Brew Wharf. Amber beer with a fine carbonation and a tan head. Malty, fruity aroma. Malty taste with some caramel, background fruit and little bitterness. OK.

Tap @ Greenwich Union: Ruby in colour with a short beige head. Sweetish clean malty notes. Dry biscuits. Ok, but nothing special.
