From Morrisons, Carlisle. Not sure if this beer knows what it wants to be.Typical Thwaites sweet malty taste, chalky with a bit of hop resin thrown in. An orange-amber appearance, harsh bite on the back of the throat, that gives a poor aftertaste. Low aroma and lacking character.

Malty, but not strong, aroma. It’s hops that are more dominant in the taste though, fairly bitter with a little fruit. OK as a session ale, nothing to write home about.

Pours amber-gold and transparent with a quick white head. Nose is weak and green apples and hops. Flavor is weak and standard for the style; bland fruity malt, modest hops, and a touch of skunk. Finish is sticky and tasteless. Yawn.

[500ml bottle, Booth’s Preston] Carbonated golden amber pour, the head reducing pretty quickly. Aromas of sweet, fruity malt and a touch of hop. There are some hops at the end, with a fruity hop component. The malts balance really well, a very well crafted beer that drinks brilliantly  550th rating

Light malt and hop aroma. Dry palete with some cereal taste and hops at the finish. Simple but effective ale.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light amber pour with a short lived white head, underwhich is a nose full of floral notes and an initial whiff of blue cheese. There’s a developing peach and light line aroma, but it’s light on the marmalade and orange peel. In the mouth it’s swings into a mild ale maltiness, taking only some of the floral character through. It is a tad too candy like in the mouth. Light carbonation; thin bodied. Not much of a finish, just some caramel and soft fruits. Good enough but could do with a whole lot more body and booze to live up to the strong ale claim.

Bottled@Black & Brown Inn, Stockholm. Amber colour, small head. Aroma is fruity, floral and quite nicely balanced. Flavour is crystal malts, some floral and fruity hoppyness. Wellbalanced and rather refreshing ESB.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2013 50 cl bottle bought at the florist’s. Pours a faint amber with a medium-lasting head. Aroma rather weak with bitter notes. Faint dry taste, biscuit-like malt and very discrete hops. General impression is of a toned-down beer that doesn’t make a fuss of itself but loses a lot of personality in the process.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Strong malts with a crisp palate. A trace of vanilla and then some noticeable caramel in the malty finish.
