3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500mL bottle. Pours an ever so slightly hazy, deep golden color, big rocky white head with unbelievable retention and lace. Nose is bready malt, minerals, faint skunk (which kind of fades as it opens up) Mouth is medium bodied, malt forward, mild sweetness with a decent balancing bitterness, grass, malt, toast. Not the best bitter I’ve had, but decent. I’d prefer to have this in Blighty, from a cask, which is likely a completely different experience.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle) Pours slightly hazy golden amber with big dense white head. Pleasant subtle fresh hoppy aroma - hints of grass, tea, seaweed and citrus. Light bodied with plentiful pleasant carbonation. Well balanced taste with soft malt at the start and hops coming in over the top. The cask version of this was one of my favorite beers when I lived in England. Don’t think I tried the bottled version. Very drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle bought from the local coop. What you would expect from a commercial bottled beer. Simple taste that fails to stand out. Very drinkable though and can imagine drinking a few bottles quite easily.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fået den som cask ale, dvs. uden ret megen kulsyre og halvlunken, så smagen fejler ikke noget, der er nok af den.
Den er sødlig, der hurtigt går over i en meget bitterhumlet smag, som bliver ved i eftersmagen.
Den blev serveret af en køn bartender (dame!), så denne øl må siges at være, ale as is ment to be.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice looking bright golden appearance. Crispy malts and grains on the nose. Super tasty biscuit and caramel on my first sip. Moderate bitterness with sweet English hops. The malt base is the key here and this is what makes so good. Also the balance set between the malts and hops is just great. Remarkable taste experience.
