3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Canned sample. Pale orange in colour with medium (and soft) carbonation. Aromas are of tangerine, pale malt, and toasted nuts. More mild sweet citrus and toasted grain in the mouth along with a hint of caramel. Soft bitterness, but clean finishing. Not bad overall.

Can from the LCBO. Clear deep amber with a one finger rocky off-white head that lingers. Nose is brown sugar and bread with just a hint of grass. Medium light caramel with only the lightest of bitter notes. Mouth is medium light and a tad thin with soft carbonation.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
473 ml can from LCBO, served cool in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear deep amber with a fair light tan head.
Aroma: Earthy, British toffee/caramel, bready, some DMS (I think), maybe lightly floral.
Palate: Medium body, medium+ carbonation.
Flav.: Quite malty with some sweet caramel/toffee notes, bread crust, still has some DMS (pretty sure), a bit floral and earthy; off-dry with moderate bitterness and a decidedly malty finish.
Not for me.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught (can’t bring myself to write ’draft...’). Mid-amber with a tobacco aroma which also continues through to the taste profile. Adequately hopped and not unlike an English bitter. Certainly, whenever I drank it, it tended to have too much carbonation for the style so a spare glass was de rigeur. Not bad but struggles some way down the second division.

Bottle. Generally clear amber pour with a small tan head. Mostly malt aroma, same in the taste. Only mild hopping throughout. Still a good drinkable beer.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice looking amber, rocky white head. Good lacing. Usual British pale ale aromas: little hop, nice malt. Nothing too big. Taste is not that good. Malty bitterness at the end. Kind of dead in the middle. Fairly light overall. Oh well.

341 ml bottle. Pours a hazy, golden amber with a large, long lasting, off-white head that laces. Light fruit aroma with grain and caramel. Sweet malty flavour with fruit and caramel, ending on a mildly dry, bitter note. Light to medium body with a watery texture and soft carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slight hop and malt taste. Very smooth and easy to drink. Not a bad choice if you are serving beer to people who prefer a more neutral experience.
