2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Bernie’s Real Ale Off License, Solihull. The aroma is hugely malty with hints of toffee. The flavour is medium to weak bitter with lots of malt but little else. The palate bitterness was acceptable and ensured that the beer was tasty and refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml Bottle. NB This beer, like the other bottled beers from Warwickshire Brewery, has changed a lot in its bottled form over the last couple of years and is NO LONGER BOTTLE CONDITIONED and thus is very different from the product reviewed in older reviews. Aroma is honey and maltiness. The beer pours well with a long lasting head. Tastewise the beer has a hbiscuity maltiness that gives way to a bitterness at the end. Not a lot distinctive about this beer but it is a nice session beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the Cleveland Arms, London. Pours clear yellow with a small, white foam head. Sweet aroma with biscuity malts, straw and hay. Flavor, too, is sweet, with lots of hay, crackery and biscuity malts, light honey and white sugar. Light in body with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, some floral hops, honey, dough, biscuit malts, a little straight sugar. Very easy, this fella. An ultimate sessioner.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - Slightly hazy at first that settles into a crisp light golden brown. Healthy creamy white head that settles into a very nice lacing.
S - A little faint but smells of apples, grass and some general maltiness.
T - A grassy and maltly base with the malts being fairly grainy with a slight bread taste as well. A lot of apple and some lemon taste as well are on top of this throughout the sip. Some earthy and herbal hop flavors come in and out. Well balanced beer with some sweetness, some tartness, and some bitterness.
M - Medium to light body. Very smooth and creamy.
D - Very easy to drink. The mouthfeel is quite smooth so it goes down easy. The flavors are well balanced and make me want to drink more. Quite refreshing.
Notes: Very much a session beer on cask. Well balanced with a number of general flavors. Also it is quite smooth and refreshing. Not a beer that will necessarily jump out at you, but one that will build while drinking it, and refresh you at the same time.

1.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
50cl bottle from Bernies, Shirley. Golden amber with a vast billowing white head; lots of sediment that is agitated by the high carbination despite careful pouring; yeasty hefeweissen style aroma with hints of spice and biscuit; spritzy and acidic in the mouth, almost vinegary, and rather thin; unpleasant acidic finish. Possibly a bad bottle.

Bottle. Light brown beer with a strong head. The aroma is mildly dry with a hint of toffee, and the flavour is very bitter, roasted and well hopped with a long dry finish. Overall a nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2007 Cask handpump, The Market Tavern, Atherstone. A sniff of wood in the nose. Milky white pint resolving into pale gold. Soapy, still and silkily malty with citrussy hints of lemon and orange blossom. Creamily wheaty afters. Easy-drinking, aromatically hoppy sessions.
