2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Well...I like the smell. Smell is of sweet malts and caramel. Pours a light amber (like murky water). The lacing is soapy in appearance. Medium high carbonation. That with a bit of bitterness masks any attempts at complexity. There is malt that tries to come through. Overall not a complex beer, and not really that enjoyable.

0,5l bottle as a gift. Aroma: bit malty. Amber appearance with nice soft foam. Nice crisp taste with light sweet hints. There’s a very little bitterness. Rather light body, nice soft carbonation. Allright refreshing beer. I finished it in 5 minutes.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear medium amber. Outstanding head volume, lacing and retention.
Light nose of classic British pale malt complete with the grainy aspect. Hop influence is slight, but does impart a very subtle note of spice.
Heavy light body with a light smooth texture. Above normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice burst in the finish.
Compared to outstanding English bitters, this one falls short in intensity. Complexity is also weak and balance is less than normal. It delivers a substandard light bitterness, but the flavor never pops. Caramel and biscuit attempt to come to the forefront in the middle, but never get passed just noticeable. The finish is a bit crisp and a slightly off flavored bitterness lingers.

16.9oz tall boy can from Xroads. Poured a clear orangey-amber with a smaller white head. Aroma is malts and grains, rather boring, sweet caramel malts. Flavor is like the aroma with sweeter malts, caramel, English yeast, tea leaves and a hint of nut shell. Boring enough to forgret but interesting enough to sip on.
