3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
15th June 2011
Clear amber beer, tidy white head. Light palate, crispy and fairly dry. Minerally and fresh. Well balanced. A little toffee in the malt. The hops, not surprisingly, are more bitter than fruity. Finishes crisp with a carbonated sting and a touch of bitter marmalade. All very English. An English bitter with the volume turned up!

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A: The beer pours a dark amber color, almost copper with a finger of slightly off-white head.
S: Smells like puke. Just bad. Cheesy and stale hops with a mild citrus note and some floral notes. Sweet bread and caramel with a slight brown sugar note.
T: Floral and grassy hop notes with a little bit of bitterness. The sweetness is definitely there. Sugary and a bit of toffee and caramel. At least it doesn’t taste like puke.
M: Medium in body with a moderate carbonation.
O: Maybe the worst of the series. Just awful.
