2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Russet coppery brown with a white head that seemed to take fright and run away. A little bit funky on the nose with aromas also of golden syrup, toffee and spent rum and coke. Flavours of golden biscuits, feels cool in the mouth with a slight mouthfeel prickliness. Sweet, malty and very little bitterness. A beer definitely designed for a palate sweeter than mine.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
I love this beer, it is definitely my go-to beer, which is saying quite a bit.
Appearance:Poured from the bottle, the lovely clear, deep red amber ale has a white-ish head, while it lasts (this is where it loses a point, for the lack of head retention).
Aroma: This has the aroma that is almost characteristic of Little Creatures, a mix of floral and cirtrus hop scents, which some sweetness coming through.
Taste: To me this amber ale is almost perfectly balanced, just slightly tipping toward the hop side. There is the caramel and mostly malty sweetness as well as the floral, citrus and tropical fruit flavours from the hops. The malt profile is somewhat less noticeable than the description would lead you to believe, but it still tastes amazing.
Palate:This is possibly the only area that Rogers falters in, the body is a tiny bit lacking, but that is expected from a beer of only 3.8& ABV. The finish is slightly bitter and short, but it still leaves you wanting for more. The carbonation, however, is right on the money, just right.
Overall: Like I said, I love this beer. Being a mid you can knock these back all afternoon and not feel any the worse for ware, while still drinking a truly great tasting beer. The only negative is the price, at $56.90 a carton (the same price as the full strength Pale Ale) it is a bit steep, but then again, it’s such a good beer it’s probably worth it. Love it!
