2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz Bottle. Englishy-copper hue with a well lasting thick head.
Hint of caramel.
Definately old school, kind of a "dusty" taste.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home. Pours with a glowing clear orange colour, medium rocky white head. Aroma is medium malty, with notes of bread, and slightly tomedium hoppy, with notes of herbs. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter, quite intense and well-balanced. Medium to full body, creamy texture, average carbonation, medium lasting malty finish. Very good session beer.

2.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Dark amber, ivory head.
Attractive aromas of pears simmered in red wine, wheat flour, milk chocolate and raisins.
Low carb. Flat and short-lived. Low bitterness. Taste isn’t so attractive.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark copper with an off white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is strong malt, slight raisin and maybe slight bread. Flavour is upfront malty plums with a slight warm bitter finish. Not really in the true style of a pale ale in my opinion.

Sehr angenehmer Malzduft mit leichten Aromen nach Zuckerrübensirup. Im Geschmack dann vordergründig viel Karamell, leider im Nachgeschmack irgendwie zu bitter.

Karamellig-nussiger Geruch. Im Geschmack dann ein wenig seltsam, wenig bitter. Leicht sauer. Trocken, aber recht langweilig.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A beer wearing a beautiful dark copper skin. Thin white head that doesn’t last long but does leave decent lacing behind. Light but steady carbonation bubbles rise.
Aromas are on the light side. There is a bit of nuttiness, maybe some ripe red fruits, and a hint of malts.
The tastes start off a bit weak and mainly bready, but finish very strong, with red berries dancing in the throat on the swallow. Really nice finish on this beer. I’d have to admit, I’d buy more of this one.

355ml bottle at Alfies, Princes Building, Hong Kong on 20/04/15. Lovely reddish copper colour with a thin white head. Fruity aroma with a little malt. Medium carbonation. Flavours of apple, melon, a little caramel - sweet and light bodied. Drinkable, but a little too fruity for my palate.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Pallant of Arundel, West Sussex. Bought today April 23rd 2015. Got home and noticed BBE on neck says MAR15. Hmph! Malty, reminiscent of malt vinegar aroma. Tan head dissipated swiftly to none. Clear deep copper coloured beer. Thick full slightly oily mouthfeel. Low carb fizz on tongue with a slightly acidic bite. Hops are difficult to pick out. Dry finish. Not bad but I don?t think I?m getting this beer at it?s best. As a wise friend once said "Every days a school day".
