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.

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

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.

Bottle. Amber body with a thin white head. Hops, spice, strawberries. Bitter. Some tart sour notes, like fresh raspberries. Dry finish. Good quality, if a little boring.
