3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, 4.3% ABV. Clear amber color with a bit of beige head. Aroma has toasted malts and some earthy hops, not much going on here. Taste has toasted malts, bread crust, a bit of caramel/burnt sugar and a hint of hops on the finish. Not really sweet or bitter, quite watery. Light body with low carbonation. It doesn’t have any off-tastes but it’s really generic and boring overall.

Very Moreish, toned down sweet tones waiting for the bitterness to kick in but doesnt, smells like proper beer, no chemical smell, great beer!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle from Asda. Quite a brown amber with a small head. Taste is mostly malt and a little metallic. Ok, but no more than that.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from Waitrose, consumed at home. Honey brown, without a lot of obvious carbonation. Crystal malt, orange peel; weirdly a hint of whisky on the nose. Taste is sweet and sticky, and fairly sickly, crystal malt. A bit of soft bitterness on the finish. Very average. I actually think the cask version can be quite good (ducks for cover), but the pasteurisation deadens it somehow. And it was so, so much better pre-Coors...

clear amber colour, medium sized creamy, slightly yellowish-beige-ish off white head; aroma of grains, metallic and some florl notes as well as hints of nuts - or it is only because of the peanuts I am eating now together with this :-); taste of malty sweetness, some toasted and spicy notes, moderate hoppy bitterness and some sourness; not really good bitter

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Smells a bit malty. Tastes really weak and watery with light malt sweetness. Very carbonated. I don’t really have anything positive to say about this beer because it tastes like crap to be honest. I’ve learned to avoid beers bottled in clear glass they always seem to taste the worst.
