2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear Copper Color, Good Head, No Lacing. First sip has some bitterness and hoppy finish, faint pine. After first sip it does not last and blends. Easy to drink and is ok. Otherwise average and forgettable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the 2014 GBBF. Clear golden orange coloured pour with a halo of white head. Aroma is subdued, nutty malt, mineral. Flavour is sweet nutty, vanilla, caramel, mineral. Clean us fermented. Palate is chalky sweet raisin. Decent. Too clean on the yeast front.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a dark golden color with a small head no real lacing. Aroma is on the mild side with some malt and caramel. Taste of malt and some caramel sweetness. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Medium body, smooth but a bit short on character. Decent beer but seems a wee bit bland.

Bottle at a kid’s bday party. Stale toffee, toast, copper. Lightly sweet, medium bitter finish. A perfect beer to ignore with friends.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2014 Pour is amber with a spongy looking fast vanishing head. Aroma is almost absent with some caramel notes but nothing too spectacular. Mouthfeel is low to medium carb, seriously lacks something, is not right in my opinion.
Taste is caramel and sweet malts and not so much bitter, not complex at all and not very balanced. A major meh.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. 5.8%. Bottled on 16.08.13. Pours a cloudy light amber with an off-white/yellowish head. Okay lacing. Sweet, hoppy aroma with malt in the background. Feels a bit dusty. Light candy-like fruity note as it warms. Flavour is sweet and hoppy. Light rock candy note as it warms, along with a dusty/cardboard note. Bitter hop finish with a grainy alcohol note. Overall okay, but could do without the dusty/cardboard notes as well as the grainy/alcohol note. 01.08.14.

Good clean taste. Not exactly the hop character of an English bitter, but very drinkable. I visited the brewery and pub a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it.
