3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flasche 355ml. Schönes antikes Etikett. Im Antrunk wie erwartet obergärig, leicht säuerlich spritzig. Schöne Karamellmalznoten. Süffig, erinnert stark an Düsseldorfer Altbier. Hopfennoten sehr dezent, kommen bei Fullers ungleich schöner zum Vorschein. Alles in Allem solide, sehr begrüßenswert die traditionelle Herstellungsweise.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared a 355ml bottle from a friend. Pours a hazy dark copper colour with a thin off-white lacing. Aroma is malty, toffee, some caramel and wood. Soft carbonation and light to medium oily body. Taste is more bitter than sweet, but the caramel is present. Overall, a very decent beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Blacker Hall Farm Shop, near Wakefield. Clear, amber colour. Film of off white head. Sweet malt. Toffee. Red fruit. Some butteriness. Taste starts off sweet, then light fruit bitter. More of the butter. I spent my first 20 years of beer drinking, on beer like this. It tastes ordinary...

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
New for me! I usually drink SM stouts. Nice foam, persistent. Red brown color once poured. Fairly smooth in the mouth, sweet @ the first sip. Bitter @ the end. Not my favorite but it’s a good choice.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Had high hopes for this beer but I just don’t like it. Very malty tasting with a hint of sourness reminding me of Belgian style beers. Not for me.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color. Nose has some corn and grain elements to it, and reminds me a lot of a lager style. Taste is similar, slightly sweet, with a lot of the grain elements coming through. Not a huge fan of this.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Light amber, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel - toffee, some floral fruitiness and light notes of wood. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel - toffee and some floral fruitiness and light notes of wood. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish, light caramel with some floral fruitiness, faint hoppyness. Sweetish bitter with caramel. Floral fruitiness with caramel just do not work for me. Could use more bitterness.
