3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A good pale ale in the British pub tradition. Tart and dry but this one has a great creamy sweet aroma. Taste the hops subtly. Tastes really fresh and paired well with grilled chicken and spinach. Comparable to other fine British pale ales.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml Bottle: BBD end of Jun 14, poured into a UK pint sleeve at home on 20 Oct 13.
Prefer a well kept cask Landlord to the bottle, but this was OK.
Light brown to light amber in colour, clean and clear: on top a decent white head than stayed.
The smell was a mix of light malts and fruity hop notes, as was the taste. Semi-dry feel to the whole pint although the malts do try and add some sweetness.
Honest and fine, a good bottle of Pale Ale.

Amber colour, good thick foamy head. No shortage of taste, pretty similar to Theakstonís old pecliar, with more of a citrus taste to it at the end of each sup. As included in hampers from top North Yorkshire bakery "Elizabeth Bothamís" of Whitby.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
500ml bottle, BB date of June 2014. Bright, clean amber in colour. Good creamy, rocky white foam head, which dies down to a fine lacing. Nose is bready, caramel, typical English ale malt aroma, with nice light citric, slightly floral, herbal hops; you just canít beat the aromas of Fuggles & Styrian sometimes! Taste is leafy, herbal, slightly citric hops, backed by good malty, bready balanced flavours. Long, slightly bitter, dry finish, light body with the mild carbonation giving the feel of there actually being more bitterness from the hops. Used to drink this all the time on draught when I lived in the UK. Back then, it was hoppy & bitter as hell....now, itís just a good, nicely hopped sessionable ale. Real pleased to see this in Canada! I can finally drink my favourite UK ale again :-)
