3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. Pours a clear copper amber, with a small off-white head, which does not last very well, but leaves reasonable lace. The aromas has some candied fruit and toffee notes and faint floral hops. Floral hops up front lead into some plum and candied fruit notes. Toffee comes in towards the finish. A sweeter-style bitter, but nevertheless a very satisfying beer at the end of a very long day.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber with a modest off-white head that lasts well. Floral aroma with some citrus and spices, caramel, light bread. Sweet with more bread than caramel, vague fruity notes, some mild roasty notes: interesting and slightly rustic malt side of thing. Dryish and quite bitter with pepper at the end. A pretty good best bitter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving: 500 ml bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a dark amber color with a small off white head. Caramel in the nose. Tobacco and caramel on the tongue with a little butterscotch. The flavor departs quickly though leaving a very clean finish. Somewhat unremarkable but very sessionable.
