3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A pleasant ambour color with nice creamy white head. Proves that pale means traditionally, an ale that is not dark but ratehr clarified. Astringent, bitter taste but modified by food.

This is about the best English pale I've ever had. Fruity, malty, smooth as silk with a slightly bitter finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Great copper colour, not much head retention. Biscuity aroma with some diacetyl and some stale sherry.
Light on for malt, flavour-wise, but pretty hoppy. Slight acidity and mild roastiness in the back ground.
Kinda complex I guess but not that drinkable really. Bit of a disappointment.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Chestnut with dissapearing head. Lots of malt and fruit in the nose. Flavour has a big burst of caramel sweetness, then some hops and lots of woody bitterness in the finish. Very good indeed.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
An old standby from the dark ages when there were no micros. Copper color (look at the bottle in the picture!), good creamy head. Aroma is faint, a bit of that apple note that you really only get in Brit beers. Flavor is of mild toffee, a touch of apple, and bit of earthiness, with the signature Samuel Smith's buttery finish. Nicely restrained. "No sex please, we're British."
