2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle - Pretty standard flavours and a hoppy taste. No hints of toffee or caramel and its amber ale is deceiving. It would be better described as a bitter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml Bottle: BBD 30 Nov 2013, poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 4 Sep 2013. As mentioned on another beer website: the front label on the bottle reminds me of those old British Rail Posters.
Orange hue to the amber body, on top a full white head of tight foam.
The nose was both floral and malty, biscuity malts with spicy flowers.
Taste wise it leads with a light malt flavour and finishes with a hop mini-bitter feel.
Fairly crisp body and well carbonated, all in all, not a bad supermarket beer.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
50ml brown glass bottle from Sainsbury - part of a 3 for £5 deal. Toffee, thin malt leading into a tannic finish. A dusting of hops. Drinkable, and without significant flaws, but not interesting or particularly tasty. OK.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 14/07/12. A copper to amber coloured beer which poured pretty much headless. Very very husky grainy throughout. Ashy and with dry wheatabix notes. It tastes like the aroma in Northampton on days where Carlsberg is particularly smelly. So much barley husk. It is very low on hop flavours. Although reading the above it doesn’t look like I enjoyed it, I actually found it pretty tasty. I’d like to try it again to see if it’s always this husky.
