3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2012 Pours a rich brown, slightly oaky on the nose but a big burst of malt, with underlying sweetness and rich woody hops on the palate. Full bodied with lingering bitter and nutty finish. Re-rated in bottle, malty nose with hint of pepper & hay hops, crisp & malty, but a very faint metallic tang too.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A copper brown coloured beer with a thickish white head. A mellow malt aroma with a slightly sweet, vinous smell. The taste is bitter, of toasted malt and the miney element again. Along with a biscuity hop flavour. The finish is quite smooth and malty. (Cask - The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk).
