4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(50 cl bottle) Copper colour, slightly hazy, with a light brown, rocky head. Aroma is very spicy and hop-influenced (herbs, pines, a bit of grapefruit), but also with a strong malty base full of character, biscuity, toasted, nutty, woody. Taste is medium bitter, and lightly sweet. Medium to full body, soft to average carbonation, pleasant texture. Great aftertaste, long finish. Stands out compared to other bottled bitters I have had, probably because it is bottle conditioned (and generously hopped). What a difference! Des not seem super-fancy, but very well-crafted and - most important - absolutely delicious!

Bottle from Tesco.
Pours amber in colour with a 2 finger white head. Aroma of malts, citrus, some spices too. Flavour is much the same, nice malty backbone with biscuit and caramel and some fantastic lemony citrus notes at the end. Nice!

Pours clear amber with a short ivory head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is caramel and biscuity malt, leafy/grassy hops, some spicy fruit. (6/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Solid medium body, moderate to low sustained carbonation, off-dry smooth and bitter finish. (4/5)
A pleasant pint. Malty without being excessively so, decent hopping giving a tea-like flavour, and a little spicy zestiness. Fairly sessionable. (14/20)

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2014 0,5 bottle purchased in Belgrade and consumed in Kosovo. Pours a typical English bronze color, filtered and with a very little ivory head which dissipates pretty fast leaving gassy spots on the top. Nose: tea-like hoppy notes, basic hidden malty sensation, biscuits. Mouth: medium carbonation, bitter overall notes hitting pungently the palate in a final blast, herbal predominantly dominating the mouth.
