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.

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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Honeyish amber with a frothy slick of white suds. Quite an appetising snout of leafy hop, robustly boozy malt and apple fruitiness. Slatey smooth and heavily malt-accented. Sturdy ale with a firm hop bitterness and oatily mellow aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Clear copper with a thin lasting faintly creamy head, aroma is sweet and hoppy. Taste is malty with a dry finish - nice enough.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Amber with a strong, white head. Aroma was of toffee with some hops in the background. Flavour was well balanced with some doughy malt followed by a long, bitter finish. Good.
