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 canít find a thing, but...at least itís 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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2004 Amber colour. Hoppy aroma. Fruity palate with some bitterness. Sweetish notes. Quite full bodied. Finishes sweetish. handpump, The Speaker, London SW1, April 2003. (7/3/6/3/13)
RE-RATE. Bottle conditioned as On The Tiles. I was rather surprised to find that this was the same beer as PG Steam as I found the bottled version much more assertive with a big resinous hop aroma, grapefruit flavour and a bitter, tart finish. I preferred this to the PG Steam, which I found a much softer beer. The only downside was that it was very lively in the bottle - a bit of a gusher. Scores updated to the bottled version.
