2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A generic bitter, not overdoing it either way, not a roller coaster ride. Looks good, rest average good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle, from Jungle Jimís in Eastgate. Clear orange color. Good thin off-white head. Little lace. Medium body. Smooth light - to - medium carbonation. More clean finish. Mostly clean malt-forward biscuity flavor, little metalic.. Saw "roast malts on the description. That is interesting. Kind of sweet, light bitter, with a light hop profile, but mostly just muted. Not bad, though. Itís English-style all around, and a solid example of that kind of pale ale.

Bottled 21/12/12. A brown beer which poured headless. Sweet and fruity. Earthy with a slight tang of tartness. Some chocolate malt notes but itís the sweetness which dominates.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A fairly mild beer. Taste and aroma almost too subtle for its own good. Some honey, some light fruit, and bread. Some pepper in the nose.
