3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 500ml. A clear copper colour with a small head. Aroma is slightly musty with hops, banana and a touch of malt. Taste is raisin and cherry with plenty of roasted, slightly biscuity, malt and a touch of hoppiness. A somewhat bitter, citric, slightly herbal finish which isn’t entirely pleasant. Moderate carbonation. Much better than I thought it would be.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled in clear glass. reddish coloured with a decent white head. Slightly malty aroma. Decent malt and hops in the flavour but overwhelmed by an unpleasant, lingering aftertaste, which ruined this beer for me. The Bury St Edmunds version of Old Bob is significantly worse than I remember, and I won’t be drinking it again.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Great spicy aroma, sweet smooth malt balanced by a smokiness and moderate bitter hop flavours. Lingering finish, plenty of body, warm spicy afterglow. Really rather good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Clear, reddish-amber coloured, no head to speak of; fruity (citrus ?) and (toasted-)malty nose with a big touch of herbal hops; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied; lingering aromatic herbal-hoppy and delicate sweet-malty finish. A pleasant brew......

From bottle. Malty aroma. Deep copper appearance with a good white head. Medium carb. Taste of charcoal and wood. Leaves a rich slightly odd after taste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) Clear, ruby amber colour with a medium-sized off-white foamy head. Aromatic, slightly floral hoppy aroma with fruity malt and liquorice spice. Moderately bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with pleasantly carbonated, silky mouthfeel. Solid malty base with notes of toffee and a delicate fruitiness; dry, bitter and floral hoppy finish. Still pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is an early rating, and very short. Amber with a nice head. The aroma has notes of malt and fruit. The flavour has floral, malty notes of fruit and it’s mild and mellow.
