Draught at Atlantic House Hotel, Polzeath - 5/7/10. Thin head. Sweet honey taste but not cloying. Some straw in the nose but the main aroma is honey unsurprisingly.

Bottled from Aldi. Quite lively carbonation, soft head and quite a syrupy palate. Quite fragrant and fruity for a bitter. Honey aroma and flavour quite apparent. Not too heavily hopped. Refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Waitrose, Northwood. A deep amber coloured pour with a slight white head. Malty, hoppy aroma. Tastes crisp and refreshing, slightly sweet, hint of honey, malty, slight bitterness. Quite pleasant and very easy drinking. A good beer to introduce my teenage nephew to beer.

Fresh on, Driftwood Spars Hotel, Trevaunance Cove, Cornwall. Copper slicked with white. Nothing but sulphur aroma. Watery and hopless with hints of berries, tea, astringency and wood shavings. Dismal.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured a light, coppery amber with a small frothy, lasting white head with good lacing. Sweet notes of caramel and a delicate honey tone with a herbal hoppiness on the nose. Flavours of caramel/toffee, subtle honey notes and a pleasant, subdued hoppy bitterness. Great on the palate, light to medium carbonation and really quite crisp. Fantastic conditioning.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
50cl bottle, pours a tan/amber with not much head. Some toffee sweetness on the nose, maybe a little orange and honeydew melon, and a little floral hop. Quite sweet on the palate with slightly drier finish that has a bit of pine and ginger coming through, it’s still sweetish in the aftertaste though, which makes it less refreshing than it might otherwise be.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
April 2008. Smooth ale with a tart hoppy bitterness. Very faint honey on the finish. Well joined up.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
A flat watery brown looking brew. Unappetising.
Quite hoppy on the nose, in a very english way. Some cereals here too, dusty straw.
The honey addition is nice, like a sweet granola. The flavours here are quite nice and delicate but the texture really lets this down. It is kind of tomato flavoured, slightly herbal.
So flat and watery, boring and gross.
This is a big let down.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (in NZ), poured a dirty amber with a thin bubbly head. Caramal malt on the nose, with hints of clover honey. A smooth palate, the honey come through a lot stronger in the flavour. The finish brings moderate bitterness. Drinks pretty well.
