3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 5, 2007 Solid but not special. Pours a clear copper, nice creamy off-white head with good carbonation. Pleasantly hoppy but not especially bitter, balanced. Malt tasty but not heavy, medium body, finish smooth and dry. Not bad, would make a decent session beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear reddish pour. Roasty coffeeish nose to begin with. But the flavour is a watery anticlimax. Milky malt and a very distant nibble of leafy hop bitterness. One to resample in keg form, as I suspect pasteurisation has killed the character of a tasty brew.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tasted 14/07/2006. 500ml bottle from Rumbleís, Wellington.
Copper, off-white head that disappears, thin looking with a short lasting sudsy lacing. Jaytee thinks itís sharp and spicy on the nose, to which Iíll add brown sugar and cardboardy staleness. Toffee-like dry malt flavour in the mouth, dry and watery, with a green kiwifruit skin note through the middle and some metal in the bitterness. Thin and stale, this one obviously didnít handle the antipodean trip too well. A good experience though: to drink this one with a Thwaites, whose grandfather was a Lancaster Bomber pilot.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Mild citrus (lime) and caramel aroma with some biscuity malt character. Clear copper coloured body topped by a fine bubbled and lasting off white head that leaves marginal lacing. Caramel malt sweetness offset by fair botterness with lingering earthy and lightly roasty notes. Medium body with moderate, soft bubbled carbonation. Pint glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle (Spar at Feniton, May-06).

chosen by the wife is adsa because she liked the bottle (thanks sarah), dark bitter with a not too long lasting frothy head, very dry initially with some floral flavours and quite a mouthfilling finish, hoppy at the end too, didnít expect too much but was quite surprised

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A dark amber, brown beer with a frothy, weak, white head. The nose is initially sweet and malty, but this is followed by a floral hoppiness. The taste is again sweet, smooth and malty to begin with, then a dry, fruity hoppiness comes through to balance the flavour. The aftertaste is dry. (Bottle - Morrisons).
