2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2014 [31/3/13, 500ml bottle rebadged for National Trust "A La Ronde Best" that my Dad shared with me - cheers!] A slightly hazy effervescent amber bitter with a large cream head. Good mouthfeel - a bottle conditioned ale that actually achieves the mouthfeel of cask ale. Orange and lots of bread yeast up front, with some herbs. Rather astringent in the finish, with a spicy, earthy bitterness afterwards. I liked it initially but swiftly went off it and struggled to finish it. 7/3/4/4/9. [Re-rate, 1/8/14, cask at the Cherub Inn, Dartmouth rebadged as "Tolchards Devon Coast"> Stupid, stupid cheating fecky rebadges. Though this was a new brewery. Bastards. Itís not even like it was a decent beer that I particularly wanted to re-rate. This time itís dull amber with a thin white head. Very bland - just a slight floral and citrus hint as if someone wavd a hop pellet vaguely in the brewery once upon a time. That said, thereís no off notes, and the beer has a reasonable enough body and is quite thirst quenching; itís just completely dull, as if a competent brewer was asked to make a beer on such a low budget that he couldnít afford enough hops. 5/3/5/3/10

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Feb 2010: known as Red Rock Traditional Bitter back then! 500ml brown bottle, the beer is bottle conditioned so it was poured slowly and carefully into my vase shaped pint glass (Old Speckled Hen badged).
The beer had a slight haze to its appearance, even though I thought Iíd managed to keep all of the sediment in the bottle. The beer was a lovelly copper colour, a fine foaming off-white head sat on top. The head left some heavy lacing as the beer sank in the glass, I like to see that, shows good conditioning in my opinion.
Hops aromas hit the nose and they certainly give the beer a typical English Bitter flavour, meaning a bitterness to the ale.
Simple and pleasant, the 4.2%ABV suits it, a good session bitter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Out the bottle, cool not cold. There is a subtle haze to it on a careful pour, yeast pack is loose. Solid, compact white crown holds on and laces well. Complex malt and hop nose, quite pronounced, with hints of toffee, wood, Anzac biscuits, tangerines and apricots, rose petals, dusty earth and Bee pollen. Good body, soft rounded mouthfeel with a smooth full finish. Quite nutty and weedy with a lot of bitter, underripe fruit coming through. Long malt, pine, wood and herbal swallow. Quite raw in flavour with biscuity toasted grains keeping it level. Some tangy citrus builds. Extremely quaffable and give off more than its modest ABV. Great stuff, another outstanding beer from this brewer. (50cL, BBE 06/12, Bridge House Cellars, Exmouth, Devon)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottled) The most carbonated beer Iíve ever come across (either that or it was dropped in the warehouse!) Fizzed out on opening. Cloudy with a very big head and copper colour. Lots of malt in the scent and roasted nuts also in the nose. Thereís also some winter fruit and burnt sugar. In the mouth, quite thin with a silky mouthfeel. Lots of bitterness but also quite a bit of sugar. Tastes stronger than it is. The mouth doesnít last long but includes berries and some earth. Slightly acidic note, possibly from the CO2.
