4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
500ml Bottle This is my long term favourite beer. It is just sublime. Its only fault is the sometimes spot on, sometimes so so carbonation from Skinners. If they could sort that out it would be perfect!! Aroma, toffee malt and hopes with a citrus zesty note. Appearance is dark amber with as mentioned an unreliable head. Get a good bottle and the head will be thick and creamy to the bottom of the glass. Taste is a malty biscuitness and hop developing into toffee and lastly a orange fruitiness and then a bitter finish.. theres something else in there that i cant quite make out too - theres a lot going on in there- but its all good!!!

Pours a clear bubbly burnt orange with lots of bubbly head that lasts pretty well. Gentle Caramel/fruity malts plus floral hops. How english. Taste is similar. Gentle bitterness from start to finish. Drying. Quite bubbly. Very much to style. Would like a little more sweetness.

Bottle, shared with Parksy. Medium amber with a pretty decent white head. Slightly toasty with marmalade hops stepping lightly across the palate. Decent light session ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle from 16th St. Pours and orange amber with almost no head. Aromas of cereal and toffee with a bit of hops. Initial malt flavor, followed by cereal, light citrus and hops. Nice enough to have another.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle (best before 28 July 2012) poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 9th May 2012.
Light to mid brown in body colour, clear and clean: on top an off-white crown of foaming bubbles.
Good malty nose and taste: molasses and malt biscuits stuck together by a mildly hop presence.
Almost as good as the cask version: a fine blend of flavours and very, very drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tired. And drinking a boring beer to boot. Deep amber with an ok sized foamy white cap. Dull grains and a light grass feature, decent fruit on the slightest of the tropical side, that’s about it for aroma. The taste is plain as well with a notable spice and dryness, grains, a weak fruit, light toast. Short finish. Meh meh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml brown bottle. Gold pour, clear, big white cap, light lacing. Light caramel nose. Taste has mild grainy malts, caramel, light grassy and citrusy orange peel-ish hops. Light body with average carbonation. Overall a pleasant and drinkable brew with decent hops notes for the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that retains quite well and reveals some thin lacing on the glass. Aromas of caramel, light fruit and floral hops accompany this ale. Taste is malty sweet at first with some fruit and builds to a pleasant citrus hop bitterness. Body is quite full considering the low ABV and carbonation is decent. Overall, an enjoyable bitter.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light amber with a thick soft stickly lasting white head. Smell of caramel malt, floral and citrus. Smooth rich creamy body. Taste of orange peel, citrus, sweet caramel with a bitter hop finish. Very nice character and drinkable. Some chocolate.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smells of floral hops and malt
Copper with a light wee head
Light bitter and sweet which is nicely balanced, light body, with a thin and oily texture. Lightly fizzy.
As it says on the bottle - a session beer. Good in the afternoon on the terrasse watching into a wee bay in Cornwall. Other than that just another generic ale.
