2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reasonable session beer. Slightly bitter balance (as advertised) but missing a bit of body and/or a little watery to my mind/taste. Still, a nice beer overall and I wouldn’t turn one down if offered again.

Pours clear copper with a medium sized frothy off white head. Nuts, dry flowers, wood, dark bread, dark berries. Light/medium body, light/medium sweet and bitter. Texture is a bit thin and the finish is watery. Ok, but not a lot to it.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear, darker golden color, topped with a small white head. A very mild malty aroma, slightly fruity and some caramel notes. The taste starts with some fruity notes, followed by a fairly moderate bitterness. A nice surprise actually, very drinkable and enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, brought to the pre-baby party by Mr Goodall. I have to admit having very low expectations here. I’ve generally struggled to enjoy any St Austell beers in the past, and my sampling of the cask version appears to have discovered a poorly conditioned bland buttery mess. So I wasn’t super excited about this! But it was actually ok. Some crisp biscuity malt, a fresh spicy hop flavour, restrained bitterness in good balance. Very quaffable. Gosh. Who’d have thought.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours out of the bottle (bought at Asda in Eastbourne) in a deep, ligth hazy amber - light brown colour with steady airy head and flat body. Aroma of malt and cookies. Taste of biscuits, cookies, light bread, hay, mild hops and flowers. Finish of cookies. Mild and very un-bitter to drink, not a bad one.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from ASDA in Eastbourne shared with McTapps. Some grassy nose with a bit of caramale and vanilla. Easy going with some raisin in the taste. Bit unpleasing bitter finish. Quality beer which just did not hit my taste.

Refreshing on a summer evening. Pale golden in colour. Not particularly adventurous in its flavour.
