3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2012-11-15. Fairly crisp dark amber orange, small beige head fades. 3+ Pleasant malty aroma has an English quality, mild caramel biscuity notes. Flavour is malty up front but surprisingly dry, with a mineral water like quality to it. The Caramel and biscuity malts of the aroma are secondary here, mild bitterness. Muted tea like notes in the finish and aftertaste. Average to light bodied palate. Just okay. Bottle from England via Mabel’s brother

Bottle from Waitrose in Witney. Pours amber with a fading off white head. Musty fruit aroma. The taste is musty metal, pepper and stewed fruit. Quite a dry finish. Slighty unpleasant dry finish. Pretty bad.

500mL bottle, pours a hazy golden copper with a medium white head. Nose is mushroomy and fairly bland overall. Flavour is fairly fruity, with light bready notes, restrained English hops, and some light caramel. Light, balanced and refreshing. Decent beer.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2013 Clear copper colour. Muted aroma but there is some floral hops and slightly roasted malts. Medium to light bodied brew with a hint of bitterness and some roasted malts.Boring beer. I could only drink one of these before i get bloated/ bored.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle served in a Samuel Smith nonic. Pours a nearly clear amber hue with a decent sized head that soon reduces to a partial coat. Leaves good lacing.
Soft aroma of lightly toasted malt with hints of caramel and hops. Both the caramel malts and the hops come through stronger in tasting, with most of the hop note in the finish.
Medium body with very soft carbonation.
O: designed as a tasty sessionable brew, this hits the mark. Good balance in both aroma and flavor. Not much complexity or distinctiveness, however.
