Very good hops nose –bit like USA hops, as well as some caramel. Nice hops in the taste, but this time clearly UK hops. Clear, crisp palate, the bitterness not fading away. Very nice golden bitter.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, Morrisons, West Kirby. Dark amber with a thin dissipating head. Aroma was caramel and hops with a similar theme continuing into the flavour with some light fruit and a dose of maltiness getting invoived too. All quite inoffensive and drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2008-09-28. Golden amber body with a modest fluffy white head. Pleasant aroma, mild interesting fruit I can’t describe over malt. (6+) Flavour is similar, modest fruit over mild sweet malt base. Light balancing bitterness. Light toffee rises in the finish as it warms, with just a glimpse of what may be oxidation? Average palate suits the beer with appropriate carbonation. Pleasant.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bbf sep 08 (that’s now!) clear golden, nice offwhite head.
aroma is aged beer, dark fruits, much heavier than i had expected, perhaps the aging has given it some dark flavor charactes.
flavor : dark fruits, sweet stuff, slightly roasted stuff, intersting bitterness, quite good, sort of leaning towards less agressive belgian brews. it’s nice, but caught me totally off guard. nice beer, but akwardly straddeling betw. belgian and english styles (imho).
