1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
How this won a beer award is beyond my understanding. Perhaps it was because it was different and appealed to jaded taste buds as it is not like other English bitters - good or bad. Aroma is mild with hints of florals and malts, but hardly noticeable. The appearance is nothing special with a thin head that fades quickly. Taste is weird with the most memorable flavour being of Tang. Watery, served too cold and just off in general. And all this at the brewery cafe itself - so this should be the beer at it’s best.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Redoak Boutique Beer Cafe, pours a hazy copper with a small white head. Aroma is quite pronouncedly hoppy, with lots of English hops. Flavour is very earthy, with a metallic tinge to it, along with subdued English hops and floral soapiness. Not a big fan - needs tweaking.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught (at the Redoak). Clear golden amber with a dense, frothy, white head that lasts well. Floral grassy hop aroma with zesty English Marmalade, passionfruit, apricots and light notes of caramel and cereal. Flavour is a light floral/grassy hop bitterness with light piney notes, nectarines, grapefruit, biscuits/cereal (dry) and caramel (light). Light bodied with medium carbonation, a watery texture and a short dry finish. Decent ‘all-day’ session ale!

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Redoak - not my preferred style so points reflect that - malt palate - kinda 2 dimensional - pleasant enough.
