2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a dark ruby colour with a dark cream head. Malty nose with biscuit and nutty notes. The flavours were a bit disapointing, some light hops with a slight hint of nuts, biscuits and caramel but these are too faint. Sub medium body, not great but drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It’s very beautiful, dark, red-brown with a small, creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate and nuts. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of roasted malt, light chocolate, nuts syrup and it ends on a slightly dry note with a grapefruit-like bitterness and a hint of oranges. The body is full and yet light, it’s a very charming beer.

Bottle. Reddish brown beer with a strongish head. The aroma is mildly malty, and the flavour is malty and lightly toffee bitter. Overall a reasonable beer.

Fruity, malty aroma. Dark ruby pour, thin head leaves some suds behind. Flavour - its a brown ale. And rather a nice one - nutty, sweet hedgerow fruit, toffee malt, tasty and refreshing cold. Not fancy but definitely moreish.

Bottle 500ml. Hoppy malt aroma. Pours a deep clear brown. The thin brown head dissolved within a couple of minutes. I found this one quite sweet, with almost a cola feel about it. Not really much bitterness to speak of.

Bottled, 500ml, from Morrisons, Banbury. Dark brown ruby with thin beige head. Sweetish fruity beer but with a cardboardy background, plum, blackberry a little hazelnut some toffee caramel on the palate. Lasting and a little cloying. Its fine if underwhelming.
