3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Cloudy brown beer with a strong head. The aroma is fairly dry with a toffee finish and the flavour is refreshing, slightly watery but with a long bitter and toffee/caramel finish. Overall an average beer, nice though.

Bottle conditioned as ’On the Tiles’, 500ml. Orange amber beer with slight head. Thin dull flavour, little richness to the body nor finishing notes, just a basic pale ale really. Sharp acidity on the tongue.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Cask at Volunteers Arms, GBBF, 2004] A dark amber beer with a beutiful beige head. The aroma is of roasted malt - very nice. The flavor is primarily roasted, but also with a tone of sweet malt. The end is quite dry.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden color, enormous fluffy white head, softly, slowly shifting down.
Nose is nothing much. I can’t find a thing, but...at least it’s not bad.
Bitter citric taste up front,freshly hoppy. Lemon zest and yeast, rides long on the tongue and in the mouth. Taste...well...there it is...not very "rebellious", just a decent bitter, smooth, slightly fruity, with that lightly lingering hoppiness, easy drinking all the way, creamy and quaffable. Yadda, yadda.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Cask conditioned) Clear amber color with small head. Oaky, hoppy aroma. Very bitter flavor with oak barrel - and hops completely stealing the show. A decent, but slightly watery bitter that is very close to RCH Pitchfork.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 4, 2004 Crown & Thistle Amber with bubble head. Softly dry palate. Initial orange sweetness gradually fades into a tight bitterness. Spanking balance. An exciting, delicate, fresh and fragrant session bitter. Very good! [3.6]
Bottle Conditioned as On The Tiles. Surprisingly good for a low abv bottled session bitter. The colour of cat's pee, but a pleasantly fragrant aroma. Crisp and clean and very refreshing. [3.1}

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale orange in colour. The aromas are, er, cardboard with some citrus notes. Flavours are equally thin. Buttery malts with citrus tang and a dulling mellowness. Not the best of RCH.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Foggy orange body, very little head. Mixed fruity flavour with a flat, nondescript bitter finish. Unfocused and lacking purpose.
