1.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 1/20
A citrusy kinda tarty aromawith hints of sweet and bitterness. Its a hazy amber ale with a small offwhite head. A sweet bitter taste reminds me of a brew ive had before. Its a dry taste and the bitterness lingers. Not much for this taste but i have to say it is a bitter brew. Its not a hoppy bitter really. I get no hop aromas. Its a light/medium body that is surprizingly crisp. Overall not a bad brew for a bitter but not a beer for me

Bottle. Hazy dark amber in colour, residue head. Aroma is very bready malt. The taste has a lot of dark ripe fruits, malts and caramel. A little too carbonated for my taste. This is a strong tasting beer. OK for a change.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma has a malty core and firm notes of caramel and horehound. Pours a clear, dark copper with a fairly thick pale copper-tan head. Firm flavor has malty, caramel and horehound tones with just a whisper of honey. Smooth texture has average body and fizz, but leaves a satisfying finish. Overall, decent if not outstanding.

Bottle. Nutty malt, oaky vinous, raisin aroma. Reminded me a bit of sherry. Brown with a ring of small bubbles. Malty, oaky vinous flavor just like the aroma, and a very mild bitterness in the finish. Smooth medium body, flat carbonation. Very nice beer.

Lovely fruity nose with malty ovetones. Nice golden brown colour. I was pleasantly surprised with this one, I was decorating and needed a rest and a drink with my lunch and this hit the spot. really nice tasting bitter with slight fruity tones and pleasant bitter aftertaste.
I shall try this again

500 mL bottle from Tesco poured into a pint glass at home. Short-lived bubby head on a fizzy orange/brown ale. Nicely hopped aroma. Lightly bitter, with some sweetness and subtle flavours. Reminds a little of Fullers 1845 though with a little less depth. Pretty good but a bit 1D.
