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.

Bottle from Sainsburys in Folkestone. Pours out in a deep golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of mild hops, barley and malt. Taste of medium bitter hops, grass, citrus, light malt and light barley. Good balanced bitterness - makes it refreshing. Solid Bitter.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle via Fred consumed Sun 26th January 2014 A rather average bitter, you could almost guess it was from the Marstons stable. Muddling bittersweet flavours but lacking in all departments, though some caramel and a little fruit twang distinguish it ever so slightly. Boring beer I’m afraid. A6 A4 T5 P3 Ov11 2.9

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. A nice bitterness, well balanced beer. But on the whole a bit average.

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.
