Bottle from the brewery via Adam, thanks! Pours light copper in colour, moderate white head. Aroma and taste are nice sweet malt, a modest hopping. Not bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
355ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a small white head and a few spots of lace. Aroma is mild hops and a hint of grain. Taste is light malty sweetness with a mild hoppy bitter finish. A decent brew but not a great example of this style.

Bottle. Pours a reddish-amber colour with an off white head which dissipates quickly. Smells smoky, almost "meaty". Tastes very interesting, again almost "meaty", yet very tasty. Not too much carbonation. I really like this beer, would buy again.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Beer pours a decent red-amber, with nice head that lasts OK and has some lace. Nice smelling beer here, with some good malt. Nice cereal smell with just some toastiness. Underneath there’s a bit of resiny turpentine smell, but that’s not too bad actually. Taste follows up a bit more of the resin than the malt, although the malt does come through in the aftertaste. Palate is kind of weak and thin. Overall, OK beer.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber pour with minimal head which quickly dissipates. Malty sweetness with strong citrus notes of oranges and even grapefruit on the nose. Taste is similar with the citrus becoming more prominent. Mouthfeel is fairly thin. Overall a decent enough and readily available local ale which pairs well with pub fair. This should be drank chilled as it tends to become rather sickly tasting when it hits room temperature.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
It pours an amber color with a small 1 finger white head that settles to a cap, it has some small lacing.
The aroma has a carmel sweetness and some biscuit, I even get a little fruit.
The flavor is dominated by a sweet malt, I also pick up carmel, floral notes. It has some hints of metallic.
It finishes with a lingering sweetness and some real strong malts. Amber’s can be actually decent if they are done correctly. I find that rarely ever happens though. It is ok but nothing to write home about.

Great beer with a nice fruity aroma from the hops. Went well with the local fish and chips.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Really nice looking dark orange pour with a short lived thick off-white head. Aroma is bread and malt. A little caramel and toast. Some light toffee. Flavor is a little sweet, malty, bready, a bit of biscuit. Perfectly drinkable but really unmemorable. I’d drink this by the pitcher and not think about it.
