2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Dark amber-red with a very thin head. Thereís little pleasing about its bitter taste with only a modicum of sweetness to be found in this aspect, although it has a much better nose in this respect.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from Booths, Preston. Pours clear dark chestnut brown with decent off-white head. Aromas are slightly soapy, toffee, fruit cake. Quite a bitter finish. Not bad.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dish soap head. Distinct banana nose. Ever so slightly light roasty with lots of dextrins. A bit watery. Finish is thin and slightly sour. For a beer only available in bottles, it should have better head and slightly more carbonation. Meh. Iím not a banana fan. Might be too cold, to be fair, but if itís in a bottle, itís going in the fridge.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle conditioned. Thin white head. Copper body. Nose is hops, floral, earthy, fruit, juicy malt and spice. Bitter. Bitter finish.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml bottle. Pours chestnut brown and seemed quite promising from the colour and aroma, but what taste it does have - English hops, malts and dried fruits - is simply not rich enough and seem lost in its thin, watery texture. Disappointing.

2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. An odd one. Pretty good taste and palate with malted hops coming through and a coffee bitter hit after. But the aroma, it smelt extremely stale and not appealing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle; reddish in colour with amber tints, like old red wine; clear, almost no sign of a head; a general impression of flatness; aroma of caramel and English hops; much fresher than it looks, plenty of fruity tanginess; well balanced sweetish malt and hoppy dryness; slight bitterness; the main characteristic - the strong dry fruitiness - continues into the longish finish; best of the three Teme Valley beers tried thus far, all of which have a somewhat rustic feel.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark copper colour. Rich malty aroma with some hints of dried fruits. Very malty flavour with some chocolatey notes and a light hoppy dryness in the finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fairly mild malty aroma, pleasant but not striking. Pours clear with no head. Strong bitterness but a but short on hop flavours
