Bottle. Amber orangey beer with a strong head. The aroma is yeasty with some fruitiness, and the flavour is burntly bitter with a fortified spirit undertone. Overall an average strong beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Rehills of Jesmond. Pours hazy golden with a fothy cream head. Aroma of lemony cirus, caramel and bread. The taste is sharp citrus at first before spice with bready yeast notes. At first this felt pretty rough around the edge with a bit of a home brew vibe, but as it went down I enjoyed it more with some clove and banana notes coming through. OK

med amber color. Big earthy nose with crystal malts and pine sticking up. The mouth show tons of earthiness, woodiness some what austere and hops back up the big malt with orange, apples and apricots showing up. Full bodied. Definitely English. Very interesting. The more i drank the more i groved on this

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
A slightly astringent aftertaste, you can feel the alcohol on your tongue. No real aroma as such, and a nice clear golden colour, I’ll be revisiting this one, though at 8% probably not too often!
