2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from local offy. A solid bitter, got some toffee tangs. I kinda like the old time bottle and label, too. One of those beers that’s great with dry-roasted peanuts.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl bottle from Krafty Pint in Darlington.
Appearance - golden amber with a decent head.
Nose - soggy cereal with a little citrus in there too. A bit metallic too, truth be told.
Taste - more metallic and citrus notes over sweet malt.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a dry bitter finish.
Overall - spoilt slightly by the metallic note. Apart from that quite balanced.
