3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Copper pour, soft white head. Herbal hops, rough bready aroma, a little mint around the edges and overripe melon esters. Flavor is soft bread sweetness, round minty/piney bitterness. Fairly full mouthfeel. Not much to distinguish this from the crowd, but fairly well executed.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber, very fizzy. Malt aroma. I left this an hour and enjoyed the sweet malty taste and tangy citric edge. Low bitterness, but full of flavour. Good British bottled beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Liquored orange nose with some sharp apple. Pours copper with a disappearing pale tan head. Flavour is great - an archetypal bitter with just enough distinction to make a classic of the style. Some broad orange hops on the middle back of the tongue balanced with a slightly citric sweetness (contradictory as that may sound). Finish is well-hopped, long, pleasingly bittersweet and refresing. A great beer.

fruity aroma with hops and oranges. Clear orange appearance with a thin white head. Smooth texture of syrup but a bitter, citrus fruit finish. Nice beer.

Bottle (from Threshers). A pleasant bottled bitter for a change. Tasty malts which arent over sugary and lovely marmaladey orangey hops. Pleasant leafy bitterness in the finish. My only complaint would be the fizz in the mouth which makes it seem a little thin.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hoppy, crisp, fruity aroma, Pours a nice golden copper, thin white head with some lacing. Slightly prickly, light mouthfeel, alcohol and orange peel on the finish. Balanced by a bit of soft malt, but crisp refreshing hoppiness is the dominant character here. Easy drinking with a clean tangy bitterness, rather like an IPA. Good.
