Aroma is a bit bland, grassy hops and caramel are the main attractions. Taste is similar with a bit more going on however alround a bit unintresting.

50cl bottle from Tesco’s, Wokingham. Bottle-conditioned, so a slightly hazy chestnut pour with a billowing, creamy head; rich, complex malty aroma, with some floral notes; buttery, caramel malt taste, with some berry fruit; and an elegant spritzy finish. A well-made, farmhouse-style bitter.

Bitter and dry but very malty flavour. Not so much a floral aroma, in fact tastes like most if not all of its complexity must originate from the choice of grains and fermentables, not a variety of hops. Takes a while to unfold in its full complexity. Due to the high bitterness it takes some effort to get through all if the layers.

Bottle. Hazy mid-tan. Thought it might have been called a steam beer because of the steaming head it created, thick and frothy. Aroma is biscuit and farmyard. Flavour is malted milk biscuits and resinous bitter finish. I liked it.

500 ml bottle sampled in 2009 as On the Tiles. Golden body with a big, dense off-whiter head. A bit weak aroma of malt, caramel and toast. Flavor is light malty, caramel and moderate bitter. A bit watery body and short aftertaste, Drinkable, but rather boring and uninspired.

Pleasantly flowery aroma with a little bit of malt sweetness, Flavour is gently bitter with a mild biscuity maltiness. Over all a pleasant but not remarkable beer.
