3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. A golden coloured beer with a short lived whitish head. The aroma is bizarrely sweet and slightly sickly. There are hints of grass also. It’s better in the mouth with better sweetness and a hint of toffee. Fruit and stingy hops. Presentable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale bronze with a white sheet of head. Copper penny aroma warming into vague toffee, nuts and musty hop oil as the head collapses; dab of strawberry and apricot, hay and tea. Not as complex beyond. Slick and almondy with some astringent bitterness in the finish slanting towards creamy malt, toffee popcorn and cake in the aftertaste. Some decent raisiny notes and tacky hop there, badly treated. Bog standard caramelly pasteurised bitter with a sprinkle of dull English hops. Totally resistable.

Bottle. Amber with an off-White head. Aromas are biscuit malts with earthy autumn fruit and burnt brown sugar. Flavours are sweet toffee with chewy orange sweets and tea. Dry with light grapefruit bitterness and zest on the finish. Decent.

50cl bottle from Sainsburys. Amber with a thin white head; fresh English hop aroma; biscuity malt flavours; pleasantly bitter finish with some citrus. Pleasant, drinkable, but rather forgetable.
