3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle into a pint glass tankard on 31st Dec 2015 during an English tasting session I had with myself. Good mahogany body but no head at all, pity. Pleasant hoppy feel to the brew with a good malt base to counter the bitterness: liked it. Semi-sweet from malty molasses and bitter from the hop content, well put together blend if slightly unbalanced and a little too sweet for some palates (not mine).

Bottled with rebadge from the Thirst Night boys, cheers. Copper with white head. Clean, sharp malty flavours, much better than their old Bottle conditioned beers. Cereal, some earthy bitterness. It’s okay.

Clear copper colour, think head. As you would expect, a hoppy taste, but not overly so. Pleasant

A good dark copper colour with slight head. A mild hop aroma. A taste of hop folowed by sweet malt and bitter finish a good drink. Bought bier huis @ Ossett.

From Asda. Tawny amber with a low off white collar. Buttered Hovis, weak berry fruit and aniseed hop aroma. Soft and bland with a dominant digestive biscuit note supported by meagre hedgerow/berry interest. Point deducted for calling it hoppy.

An amber beer with a hoppy aroma. There’s a mild, sweet flavour but it’s a touch on the bland side.
