3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Poured a clear amber with a frothy head. A very rich and spicy aroma. The flavour is packed with fruity and yeasty flavours - a taste explosion - and the palate is left with a enjoyable tingly feeling. Not as good as the original beer.

Old Bob Boys....where shall I start. Me and ’MJW’ cracked a few of these bad boys open a few weeks back, in between a bbq and a night out with the boys. Looked nice, smelt fruity, so we thought we were in for a treat. But, suprisingly, the after taste really did knock down our overall expectations. Had worse though, but had many, many better.

Leafy hops,some malt and unfortunately skunk. copper, small off-white head. Taste of the leafy hops and candied malt almost beats the skunk away but not quite. A little thin, sweet. Good, in spite of the striped visitor. Thanks Jon Walker.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a copper colour with a huge white head that fades totally. Nose slightly oaky with some dull winter fruit and some artificial cinnamon. Mouth is again slightly oak-aged and slightly bitter, but with a lot of sweetness from malt shining through. Palate is sweet and slightly (sour) fruity, but it all tastes disappointingly artificial and a bit crap. I had expected more (like not artificial oak taste), I did not find it.

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.
