3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - handsome 500 ml bottle. Pours a dark, sparkling copper with a thin white head that persists around the edge of the glass. Sweet, but slightly faint aroma of tea and a touch of mint. Flavor has some brown sugar accents, unsweetened tea, root beer, sassafras and just a touch of toffee. Mouthfeel is refreshing and clean and leaning to the dry side of the spectrum. Decent bitter - good session material at 4.4% ABV

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: Pours a brownish, tea-colored body with a small, bubbly, white head. Time to dive in! What are we Thwaitesin’ for?!
Smell: Pretty wimpy nose here. Bits of malts, brown sugar, and leafy hops, but only bits mind you.
Taste: Dry, biscuity malts with a toffee-minded sweetness and hint of brown sugar. All of it pretty thin. Hops come across with an herbal, tea-like flavor and a restrained bitterness. Dry, waterlogged finish. So clean, light, and empty you’d swear it was a lager.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Mild carbonation. Fairly watery.
Drinkability: Light in body and flavor, it definitely does make for extremely easy drinking, but it does remind me of a slightly watered down cup of tea. After all, you can’t spell "Thwaites" without t-e-a. And "Lancaster", I guess. Oh, and "Pasteurised".

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, Bargain Booze, West Kirby.
Bottle. Pours a dark reddy amber colour. Aroma is malty with some caramel. Flavour is somewhat lacklustre, malty with some hop bitterness, but verging on the bland, and a bit of a chore to finish.
