3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fruity, malty aroma, yes, some apple and pear, with some light, toffeeish sweetness, faint buttery notes and noble hop character. Medium amber color with a light, creamy head. Pervasively fruity and cidery, with caramel and light brown sugar sweetness, lightly spicy, herbal hop flavors and with a faintly woody, bitter close. As it warms, gains a bit too much in the way of sweetness, so this seems best at a rather cool temperature. Other than that, enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Red amber colored, small white head totally drops except a thin white ring round the edge of the glass. Mild caramel malt aroma. Malt front, mild, that marges into a mild hop finish with increasing bitterness. Coffee-ground aftertaste. Perfect carbonation balance throughout. Very Bock like.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft: copper to bronze in color with a minimal white head. I much prefer American Pales to British and this is a very British style Pale. Nicely malty with the classic British "tang". Not bad, but I do prefer the American style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange with a white head. mildly smoky, toasty aroma. Some smoke in the flavor, as well, and dirty, earthy flavor. Seems to be some vegetable (green pepper) towards the finish. Resiny, piney hop finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Medium chestnut brown, pretty white head, left a good ring. Faintly malty aroma, distant but pleasantly beery. A nicely balanced bitter, good session brew, focused on malts over hops.
