3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Faint aromas of grains, amber malts and herbs. Brownish copper with a one finger size foam. Subtle bitter hops upfront with a pleasant brown sugar, maple, candied caramel and sweet honey malt base. Overall, pretty basic flavor but smooth and enjoyable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 500ml. A copper beer with a big creamy head that disappears after a couple of minutes. Aroma is of caramel, roasted malt and alcohol. Taste is bitter, but not very strong. Maybe somewhat watery. I have a problem with the temperature, but I was told I drank it at the correct temperature. I have tasted serveral Premium Bitters and there is something off with this beer. Nevertheless, I think is very drinkable, as most Premium Bitters are.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 500ml. Clear orange/copper with a fluffy offwhite head thatís gone in a minute. Strong grainy aroma: cereal, straw and dought yeast, with hints of caramel and spices. Creamy, but a bit thin bodied. Pleasant cereal and roasted character, but maybe a touch watery. Nice, bitter finish and extremely drinkable, all that I ask from a bitter.

Bottle 500 ml at home, poured into a big Guinness glass, ABV 5.1%

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Darkcopper with a thick light tan head. Nose is tea, caramel and syrup. Taste is heady, giving a slight alcohol (this could be because the bottle has aged a little), some dark berries, caramel, biscuits, banana and some light chocolate. Delicious! Not sure if this is because itís over a year after itís sell-by-date or if itís always this tasty. Needs retesting :)

Little aroma, decent taste for type of beer, but not my favourite style. Pleasant enough.

I really like this one. Nice, dark caramel color. Not much to the aroma although what's there is good. The taste has a very crisp feel and a very calm hop finish on the palate. If the price would allow it, I'd drink it all night.
