3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled@8BeerQuickPicnicSession (thanks to the craziest bartender in the world!). BBE way past (2004), thanks, wherever you managed to dig this up from! Pale nutbrown colour with creamy mediumsized slightly off-white head. Aroma is quite much fruity and flowery hops along with some grass and yeast. Also some slight skunked notes, which may be due to beer being old. Flavourwise the beer is fruity and flowery hops with some slight yeasty notes as well as mild alcoholic sweetness. All in a nice balance. Both were a bit surprised how well the flavour has kept. Smooth!

Bottled, Pasteurised. Light copper colour with thin white head. Nice crisp malting giving a smooth mouthfeel, when you overcome the carbonation, the beer then flows into a full bitterness that warms with alcohol.

loved this. I felt there was a lot going on with fragrant lemon zest, a good anchoring of malt body that never dominated, and a refreshing hit of hoppy bitterness, all held together with a generous mouthfeel that oozed quality. There were no rough edges, and it all melled together splendidly. My personal beer of the month.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottled) Amber-coppery colored with a small, somewhat lacy head. Quite mild, hoppy aroma. Sweetish, fruity and aromatic-hopped flavor with a bitter finish and some alcohol presence. Quite carbonated, medium-bodied palate. A pleasant and complex-hopped ale, but nothing to die for.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lightly hopped flavour yet a slightly sweet nose from this redish beer. Generally a dull flavoured beer, but ok.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2003 Aroma is similar to Newcastle Brown Ale with a buttery maltiness backed up by a waft of hop resins. Copper brown in colour and with a well balanced body, the alcohol and hops creeps back up your throat and fills your nose with a warming blast.

Bottled.Very much in the Shepherd Neame style, amber with ginger tinge. White clumsy looking head. Big grassy hop presence in the glass. Dry, slight bitterness. Nice beer but nothing out of the ordinary. #Late mail, Improved in smoothness the warmer it got.
