3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Clear amber/ruby with a thin ivory head which was quick to disappear.
Aroma: Bread/toast, raisin, mineral, hay/grass, earthy and peppery.
Taste: Low/medium sweetness, low bitterness and sourness.
Palate: Smooth thick texture, light body, average carbonation, mildly astringent and lingering fruity malty finish.
Comments: Tasty, no glass lace. This beer would have been better if it was slightly stronger as it had the basis for nice dried fruit and vinous flavours. Good session beer overall.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear light brown with wispy white streaks. Aroma is crazy sweet. Kind of like wort almost. Taste brings more sweetness and malt. A little caramel in there. A light bitterness follows. Average palate. Finishes a bit sweet and doesn’t linger.

Chocolately, grainy, unmalted barley. Copper pour. Mild body, slight skunk. Not particularly exciting. Easily drinkable, as one would hope.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked: L142-KE-02:42. It pours medium amber-copper with a lingering off-white head. The aroma is bountiful with caramel and butterscotch malts, sweetness, but a played down hop note. The body is medium. The taste is also extra sweet like sugar but there is a modest bitterness at the finish. This would be a good British pub beer.
