3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very malt aromas, some meanoidins, sweet. Dark copper with thin off white head. Taste is malty with strong diacetyl, quite slick mouth feel with low carbonation. Still enjoyable and quite easy drinking.

Boiled sweets nose, good balanced bitterness leaving a drying pallet. Buttery mouth feel, but not out of context for an English type ale.
