3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) Pours a ruby brown colour with a frothy off white head. Aroma of caramel, some red berries, slight bready malt, a little brown sugar and subtle spicy hops. Taste of caramel, red berries, some raisin, slight plum, subtle nuttiness and maybe golden syrup/Brown sugar. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A sweetish, caramel, spiciness in the finish. A lovely malty, British styled, brown ale, very caramelly and fruity. The spiciness of this malty beer brings out all the other flavours. Probably the best of all Thwaites beers.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml Bottle from The Bishops’ Mill (JDW), Durham, £2.99.
Pours dark ruby-brown with a thin and diminishing, bubbly, tan head. The aroma is pleasant and has lots of sweet berries and perfumed tropical fruit. Similar fruity sweetness fronts up the taste but the finish is a good, long, dry counterpoint with just a hint of a crisp, woody flavour and a slight sugary aftertaste. What do you call this style? Brown IPA? Decent.
