3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml Bottle. It pours a dark golden body topped with what is at first quite a dense head but it soon goes leaving thin lacing. Its aroma is not exactly "bursting" but there is malts and a hint of grapefruit. Its taste is full of malts and the hop inspired grapefruit but theres is also a spiciness and subtle hints of dark chocolate ending in a dry bitter finish. One of Greene Kings better beers but not a top 10 beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5 l bottle from local supermarket. Colour is light amber. Taste has bitterness from the rye and the usual English maltiness from the rest. Hops add some bitterness if this is slightly cool and some American hoppy flavours when this is cold. Very nice, but English bitters are just not my style. Or, maybe, I should go England and try this from the cask.

Bottle. Pours a clear pale amber colour with a fizzy but none lasting white head. Aroma of barley, orange, soapy lemon and some tea. Taste of orange, grapefruit, fruity malt, boiled barley sweets and herbal hops. Light bodied, soft carbonation but an oily texture. A soft herbal bitterness in the finish. A very average bitter with a artificial hop taste.

500ml bottle BB Nov 2015. Amber orange, clear, sparkling, big foamy white head, some light lacing. Aroma is rubbery, dry hops, light mango and apple skin. Body is medium, foamy, low carbonation. Taste is rounded traditional bitter hops, peppery spice, burnt toffee, also has a thin fruit salad vibe, medium bitterness. It’s alright, just a bit of a confused flavour.
