Bottle from Bier Huis.
Pours Chesnut, clear with a singe finger just off white head. Aroma of malts, caramel and breadiness. Taste of initial malts, then a bit of carbonation then caramel, toffee, dark fruits, with a lightly hoppy bitter finish. Very nice!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.55 bottle. Clear, light brown color and a small, white head. Delicate aroma of caramel, English malts, and some bread. Taste is sweet, composed of caramel and malts, on top of that some dough and delicate bitterness. Medium body, slick texture, and lively carbonation. Finish is somewhat off balance with astringent tones appearing with time. Overall a standard, English bitter with hundreds like it.

Bottle pour. Pours a copper color with a lasting foam head. Super malty aroma with subtle hops. Overpowering super sweet malt flavor. Not well balanced but not bad either. Fresh tasting beer. Pretty good.

Pours orange amber with a medium foamy off white lacing head. Slight musty nose of cereal, light sweet apple, mild yeast, and modest hops. Traces of butter tart. Rich and malty for the style. Bready malts, earth. Carbonation is very smooth and attractive Background maple syrup/brown sugar. Hops are quite tame even by British standards. Slight citrus peel in the finish. Nice beer. The label is beautiful.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a beautiful clear coppery amber, with medium off-white head that reduces but persists.
Aroma is malty, roasty, earthy. Taste follows suit with nuts, dough and a hint of caramel, leading to sweet-sour finish.
A cut above the average pale ale without being exceptional.
