3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This dark amber beer has a nice head and the aroma has hints of malt and hops. I also find roasted malt and hops in the flavour and there is a nice bitterness from the beginning, and it develops in the finish, where it becomes both dry and bitter. Actually so dry, that I have to have another sip :))

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a deep amber with a fluffy white head. Aroma features fruity tangy hops, with a touch of stewed malt and an oxidative character. ON the palate there is sweet malt, more stewed malt and oxidised hop leading to a firm but slightly harsh bitterness. Past its best.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl bottle. This is a clear amber beer with a small white foamy head. The beer’s aroma is quite malty rather than hoppy; a combination of buttery caramel and roasted notes. The flavour is again quite sweet with a light body. Slight bittersweet finish rounds this beer off.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ruddy, deepest amber and very bright is the body, infused with little more than a fine bubble here and a fine bubble there. Head, a big old, loose, fluffy, off-white mess that drabs wildly down the pint. Sweet, buttery, Anzac biscuit, bold toasted malts and tangy, rose petal like hops greet the olfactories. Quite sweet, nutty and floral on the palate. A little peanut-brittle fresh baked from Darrell Lea, perhaps! Again the toasted malts are predominant, a little plum sauce in there as some caramel and general woodiness to balance. Shows good length, only mildly bitter on the swallow with a floral, earthy hop finish that dries out somewhat. Body is a bit lean, soft. Good English aroma and flavour on display here. Goes down with real ease, good balance of malt and hops, Not too shabby to be honest!!! (50cL, 28/11/07, The Beer Store Morley)
