Tap at Pub Edo. Light grapefruit and mild tropical nose with heavy malt. Almost candy sugar sweetness with a heavy and full body. Quite boozy and over the top. Really unbalanced with some light fruit as it warms. Meh.

Bottle shared with Scarlett on Christmas Day 2015. Pours a deep amber body with no head. Nose is sweet malt and barley. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with notes of sweet sugar, caramel malt and barley. Generic, bland and a bit of a miss.

12 ounce bottle from John’s. Pours a mostly clear bright orange color with a medium white head. A big sweet nose, pale malts, some toffee. Light citrus, oranges, yeasty dry at times, more pale malts, a bit of oxidation- who knows how old this is. A decent very English style BW. Enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an Amber/Brown color with a white head. Head retention is good. Aroma of malt, smoke, little licorice and alcohol lingers over all of them. Taste of lite coffee, malt, brown sugar and lite hops. Great tasting barley ale. I can see this being a good everyday sipping brew.
