2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Light copper coloured ale. Firm white head of tiny bubbles. Steady carbonation. Aroma of earthy hops, slight floral note. Good solid malty flavour with firm bitterness and medium hop flavour of earthy, floral, slightly spicy notes. Extremely drinkable but not quite living up to the reputation.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Crisp palate. Floral notes. Lots of hop bitterness in the finish. Not much hop fruit. Bit bland.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle, 0.5 l, from K Supermaker Kamppi, Helsinki) The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was quite small, white, bubbly and long lasting. Aroma had hops, grain, dry hay and grass. Palate was medium bodied and bit dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, grain, hops, grass, mild fruitiness, hint of sweetness and medium bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. Slight musty character both in aroma and in taste. Still a good hoppy bitter.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tämä maanomistajan palliale on vaalean kuparinen. Vaahtoa ei juurikaan muodostu ja se mitä muodostuu, katoaa hyvin nopeasti. Tuoksu on kutsuvan hedelmäinen, keksimäinen ja kukkaisen humalainen. Raikas maku on myös kukkainen ja hedelmäinen. Oluessa on pienoinen katkera jälkimaku ja hiilihappoisuus on melko pontevaa. Hyvä olut.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear deep orange with a thin lasting head. Aromas are subtle, some spiciness and citrus fruits. Flavour was a real let down, harsh biting bitterness followed by a tart almost medicinal flavour in the finish. I dont think this bottle has traveled well at all.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Pours a clear amber, with a small, rapidly fading head. The aroma is an inviting mix of sweet malt characteristics, mainly toffee and caramel. There are some pepper and citrus hops to begin, with burnt caramel in the middle and a finish that blends caramel and pine. A quality bitter, and a satisfying ale.

Bottle. Biscuity malt, plenty of sharp bitter hops. Also caramel, toffee, spiciness and apple. Thin white head, good retention, some lacing. Clear amber body. Lovely bitterness. Long dry bitter finish, decent carbonation. Quaffable. Excellent paired with almost any classic English dish.
