3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[500ml bottle, gift from Mum & Dad - cheers!] Pours very clear copper, swiftly diminishing off-white head. Malt and lemon aroma. Good, rich bready maltiness with some fruit in the background. Decent, well-balanced clean bitterness in finish. Alright, it’s not complex, but it’s a damn fine malty bitter, with a good depth of flavour considering the low ABV. Nice one!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A dark, amber brown beer with a frothy off white head. A very discreet, slightly sweet, malty nose with a hint of hops in the finish. The taste is dry and bitter hoppiness to begin with, then a mellow smooth maltiness with a hint of honey, The aftertaste is dry on the mouth. Nice, quirky story behind the name! Bottle Conditioned

Bottle (22/10/10). Burnt caramel in the nose then berries in the early taste. Nice, satisfying, above average beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
While the light-hearted brewery and beer name make you think these guys
have been getting into too much of their own product, the end result is surprisingly impressive. Standard orange/brown pale ale colour. Big caramel and vanilla aromas and a silky-smooth palate. Very nice balance between malt and hop. Well-designed woody character that especially shines through on the medium-length finish. Nice, nice stuff.

A Sim rate (bottle from Waitrose): Malty aroma like a horlicks or maltesers. Sweet, yet pungent. Biscuits. Bread. Yeast. Not much to the flavour. Slight bitterness in the finish. It’s not as beautiful as Daze. And not nearly as sweet.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Amber, brown with a small head. Aromas are sweet toffee malts and lemon with a light roast character. Flavours are lightly malty with citrus. Quite hoppy and dry towards the finish. Tasty for its strength. A good session beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. It pours a clear, golden body, with a nice, lasting, creamy, off-white head. Delicate nose of malt, caramel and hops. I wish for a more pronounced hoppiness though. The flavor is quite bitter, with caramel and pale malt to follow. Medium body. Nice finish with some hops. A nice session beer, but they could easily put more hops in it, bitterness that is. (070707)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, from Waitrose in Lincoln. Amber gold, thin white head and gentle condition. Pleasantly fruity hops and vaguely toasted nuts in the nose, some hints of melon, herbal hoppiness and low nuts in the mouth and a fruity finish tempered by a dry bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light malt aroma. Amber color with a major persistent head. Taste is light malt, with bitter. I don’t find it dry. Malt stays to the finish, but the hops end up dominant. A tasty and interesting beer with session level alcohol. Very nice. However, my bottle does not seem to be bottle conditioned. The words are not on my bottle, and there is no noticable sediment. Sadly, things do change.
