2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A mid to dark reddish-brown coloured beer with a frothy white head. A tad sulphurous on opening but this soon dissipates, to leave a fruity, slightly grassy hop aroma. Dry mouthfeel. A bitter citrusy hop taste, then a slightly sweeter malt flavour comes through, the combination of which gives the beer a candied peel flavour, plus a biscuity, cereal taste that lasts into the finish along with the citrusy hops.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
50cl bottle from Lidl. Another of the cheap specials provided by Shep. This oneís amber with a ring of translucent head; with a musty grainy aroma with a hint of purple fruit; itís thin with a soft caramel taste and more fruity traces adding a touch of acid; and then a surprisingly warming finish thatís crisp and dry. This is actually pretty good stuff for the price.
