3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A gift from Button. I’m beginning to think he doesn’t think too much of me. Clear, copper colour. Filmy, white head. Sweet, fruity hop. Hint of biscuit malt. Taste is sugary, then dry. Thin palate. Dry on the finish.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Waitrose in East Cowes. Pours out in a light amber colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of barley and light malt. Taste of old malt, light barley, mild hops, old bread and sour berries. Just a very unpleasant and untasty mixture. Unbalanced. Not that bad, but quite awful stuff.

Botle shared with McTapps. Highly drinkable piwo with a nice viena nose of nuts, caramel, bit of sugar and bread. Quaffy and mild with a bit of herbs in the aftertaste. Syrup finishing it off. Good and classic brew without being rocket science.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Drank from a twelve ounce bottle. I was excited to try this one from Stevens Point Brewery, wasn’t very good. All of their beers have well-balanced and had the proper care, this just wasn’t very good.
