4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bacchanalia, Cambridge. Lot Number 218. My bottle gives ABV as 4.9%. And very good it was too. Dark brown. Complex and evocative aroma of apples, ash and composted leaf mould. Taste is very gentle and autumnal, full of apples a little past their best, bonfire smoke and gradually developing sweet malt. Only a little carbonation. More bottled beers should be like this.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark brown to black body with a fluffy head that lasts through the first few sips. The aroma has a bread and caramel quality. The taste is light, faintly bitter, with a slight metallic bit toward the middle. There is some cereal and a bit of roast in the finish. It’s easy to drink and refreshing.

Bottle from Bacchanalia, Cambridge, purchased & consumed 27-03-10 I seem to be following Hughie at the moment I think about 3-4 recent ratings including this have been after Bedford’s finest. Pours dark brown with a slight haze and a light beige head. Thre is a good aroma, its like that just being brewed smell, some yeast also noted. Malty, rustic and earthy with just a little smokiness popping up. A8 A4 F6 P3 Ov14 3.5

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A descent English ale. Poured into pint glass. Lovely bubbly head. Dark red colour. Wild berries; barnyard aroma. Earthy texture which is also warming, grass, smoke, herbs and a touch of cranberry. An interesting beer. This was what I forgot to bring to Chris O’s night so apologies to Jan. I bought the wrong beer. D’oh!
