1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Cask at Cloisters. Pours clear dark brown, thin bubbly white head. Aromas are mostly vinegar at first, resolving to fruit cake (maybe sour fruit cake?). Taste is more of the same, sadly. Didnít finish this, which is rare for me.

2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Darkish amber ale with a creamy if slim off-white head. Aroma minimal taste mild malt gentle bitter pleasant enough, My own preference might have been for a bit more prominent flavours though pleasant enough.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy orange brown colour, big foamy head. Sour caramel malt aroma. Sweet oaty malt flavour. Bitter aftertaste. Fairly typical Sulwath beer. They need to improve the quality of their beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle, just out of date when opened on 4th Aug 2012.
Lovely dark amber body with a thin tan coloured head on top.
The nose and taste combined nicely: malty and yet hoppy too, pine, nuts and caramel vied for prominence with yeast and a mini-hop bittereness also in the mix.
Well balanced and easy to drink, the 5% ABV being nicely hidden. Soft and smooth feel to it.
