3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light amber pour, fairly quick head. Nose is malt and Yorkshire yeast. Bittersweet. Middle is solid malt backbone, apricots, and more signature yest from the "squares" flavor. Finish is warm and malty. Held on to this one a little bit, and it was pretty good.

I really enjoy this beer. I like that it's a winter beer but doesn't have spices in it like many others. A little more robust than a pale ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A filtered orangey copper body, with a quickly settling frothy white head.
Aromas are breads, malts, biscuits and just a hint of grassiness.
Definitely more malts than hops on the tongue, with a grape and raisin centre.
Overall, a decent craft brew, but it kind of gets lost in the crowd.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours copper with medium off-white head with lacing. Nose has very light toast notes - maybe some mild herbal hops somewhere in ther very subdued aroma. Mouthfeel is everything here - creamy with good balance between resin acids and soft malts. Flavor is simple - some mild caramel, hazelnut with a fruity, pear/orange hop finish and just a bare touch of bitterness. A simple, straightfoward british ale, if tasted blind I would have said ESB - a rather good ESB but certainly not top of its category.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.55 bottle. Clear, light brown color and a small, white head. Aroma is composed of caramel, butter, and some malts. Taste is sweet, caramel, malts, delicate roast - not much else to it. Medium body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is also delicate and its difference from the taste is insubstantial. Overall another standard English bitter, nothing to talk about.
