2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured into a perfect pint.
2.75 A: Clear orange amber color. Two fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is below average and very little lacing is left.
2.75 S: Quite bland this one is. The other Stevens beers Iíve had havenít been spectacular, but they all had more going on than this one. Grainy maltiness with a touch of caramel sweetness.
2.75 T: Taste is like the nose. Itís a pretty standard amber except that itís much weaker than the standard amber. Grainy malts with caramel sweetness.
3.75 M: The mouthfeel is the best part of the brew. Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Very pleasant creaminess.
3.0 D: Pretty unimpressive amber ale.

Darker than ínormalí lager. Small white head. Pure malt flavoured. There is a flavour at back of tongue that I canít quite place but which adds plenty to this beer. Very nice with a slight and unexpected bitter finish.

Clear copper with a large slightly off-white head that dissipates quickly. Very sweet and slightly floral aroma. Plenty of malt flavours, quite sweet, a little floral, slightly earthy. Decent, not outstanding.

Bottle from a B&M Bargains. Pale amber in colour with a short-lived, off-white, head. Slightly tired cereal malts, grassy, bittering, hops and a yeasty finish. Ok.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A gift from Button. Iím beginning to think he doesnít 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.
