3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

A proper real ale. Tastes much better than it looks. Smells of banana & tastes very malty.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle courtesy of Mike & Martha. Amber with a cream head. A slightly odd taste. Malty with toasty notes, a little banana, some spice and quite a lot of metallic flavour. Different but not brilliant.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500mL bottle, pours a clear amber with a large white head.
Nose is subtle, with toasted bready malt and a very slight English hop profile. Flavour is identical, with notes bready caramel malt that dominate. Very dry body with moderate heaviness for the style and ABV. Decent but boring.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rated on 2-16-2011 (Bottle) This beer has a large frothy, very fizzy ivory head that mostly diminishes, transparent orange body, fizzy carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is malty, fruity, nutty, and musty. The taste is fruity, malty, bitter, and somewhat harsh tasting. The mouth feel is lively and this beer is light-medium bodied. I am not a fan of this beer as the flavor is harsh and this beer has a lingering bitter aftertaste. This is not a beer I will entertain drinking again.

Pours orangish/brown with a tan head. Smell is malty, nutty, fruity. Taste follows the nose - ends dry and woody. Body is light and the carbonation is slightly below average and fine in structure.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Classic one. Not really special but quite decent with its own advantages. Bit hoppy with some grass and leaves. Mild in the end and very drinkable, easy going ale.

Pours out in a clear amber colour with low head and medium body. Nose of ripe hops and caramel. Taste of medium bitter hops, light malt, nuts, caramel, light whiskey and leaves. Quite dry and bitter mouthfeel and finish. Easy and smooth to drink, really enjoyable.
