3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a finger of white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild caramel. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with a light citrus and grassy hop bitterness. One of my favorite English bitters. Although, should be classified as an English Bitter.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml can. Pours a clear burnt caramel with a two finger foamy off-white head. A lovely looking pint. The nose is largely caramel, with some nice floral/piney hops, and mineral notes. The taste is caramel, with light resinous hops that disappear into a watery malty/fruity finish. I really like the hop profile in this beer. Super easy drinking stuff.

[Bottle that my Dad shared with me - cheers!] Reddish amber with a small off-white head and a light fizz. Mellow fruity berry flavour with a moderate bitterness. Good and tasty especially for a pasteurised beer. My Dad had got a bit confused when he served this & said it was Wells Bombardier, so it may have just tasted good compared to my extremely low expectations for that beer!
