Scent of sweet floral hops and malt. The taste is interesting, first there is a berry flavor (raspberry?) Which is then transferred to a nice malty taste with a clean hop bitterness. A beer which differ from the general nature of Premium Bitter / ESB. I like it!

Bought it as it’s the only British Beer available anywhere in town apart from brewdog. It was a real treat, caramel, quite bitter. Reminded me of Nethergate, but it’s been a while.
But blimey they charged 10€ a 500mL bottle, twice the price of any other beer in the place, no idea why (well it might be that someone read the blurb on the back about celebrating the battle of Trafalgar).

beautiful clear beer to drink. The texture is soft and caramel flavorful. The hops added give it a little different taste than similar beers. Quite wonderful. Gift from Uckelman

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle at home in Richmond, as ’St. Austell Admirals Ale’, 5%, BB Apr 2017, bottle conditioned. Dark amber orange brown, translucent, pretty still, quickly diminishing head. Aroma is cola, papery, sugary. Body is light and smooth with soft carbonation. Taste up front is demerara sugar, some browning apple, rounded malt, flinty, dusty, minerally. When left out for a while, the malt character becomes a lot richer and toffee-ish, which led to me increasing the rating slightly.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
2 bottles, clear mahogany, one with more carbonation than the other
Malty with a slight caramel and tobacco after taste, it’s bottle conditioned but very clear and no sediment
A Mediocre beer, on the good side of mediocre.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
W aromacie czuję trochę likerowego alkoholu z nutami ciemnych suszonych owoców. W smaku jakby woda sodowa z saturatora z odrobiną soku z jakiegoś ciemnego owocu. Lekkie i pijalne. Dobrze gasi pragnienie i smakuje lepiej niż woda.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home, 22/08/16.
Rich chestnut brown with reddish hues topped with a solid beige cap - a good looking beer but lacks the retention to garner a top mark in the appearance stakes.
Nose is dates, sticky toffee pudding, fruit loaf, light spice, stewed prunes.
Taste comprises toffee, dates, Soreen malt loaf, biscuit, mellow fruits, brown bread.
Medium bodied, soft carbonation, drying close with a mellow fruit rinse.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2016 Bottle shared by Mart, thanks! Clear dark brownish copper beer, small white head. Nose is caramel, malt, biscuity notes. Flavor begins somewhat watery, but the middle of the taste has a decent caramel tone to it, finishes malt and watery again, with a soft hop profile.
