3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pour. Aroma is dark fruits, caramel and noble hops. Appearance is cloudy brown (like a dark cider) with minimal head, no noticeable sparkle and no lacing. Taste is as aroma--a bit like a rich, dessert wine. Palate is medium bodied with average carbonation and pleasant sweet finish. Overall, a nice, authentic European representative of the style. Unique and good.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Willow’s Market in Menlo Park, CA. Aroma is caramel, malts, mild dirty/earthy hops. Taste is heavy, chewy caramels, lozenges. A gritty, toothy Pale Ale most likely brewed to be appreciated in a dark English bar by men far more ferocious than myself.

Good, because it’s Samuel Smith, but fairly average when you think about it.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Gardiner & Haskins, Bristol. Deep copper in colour, with a short-lived, off-white, head. Sweetish malty aroma with some plum fruit and a hint of liquorice. Flavour had caramel, more fruit and solid malts, before a decent, bitter, finish. Good.
