2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
2L brown plastic bottle sampled many years ago poured a dusty light brown color with a huge white head that retained well and left a few spots of lacing as it settled. Aroma was nutty and earthy with some toasted grains. Taste is an earthy hop bitterness with a nutty butter flavor and a toasted malty sweetness. Light bodied and was surprisingly tasty despite its low ABV. A little bit musty for my tastes, may have been an old bottle.

Searles, Hunstanton. Thin nutty malt aroma. Biscuit, vanilla, chalk and vegetable water. Heavily diluted gravy, varnishy bitterness. Pretty awful, but bearable. Makes total sense it’s brewed by John Smith’s.

Can. Chestnut colouring, off-white whipped cream head. Neutral, light nutty aroma. Metallic roasted base flavor - shavings off a rusty nail in water, light bitter finish. Thin mouthfeel, metallic on the roof of the mouth. Watery finish.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Cheshunt Rugby Club. It was served very cold, but still had some flavour - a tea-ishness with hints of citrus. Any hoppiness that may have been there was frozen out and the serving temp. also killed off the finish. However I enjoyed it - it was a most refreshing post-match pint.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tinned, pasteurised. Brown amber, a little murky, carbonated but short lasting head. All that was available at a party, so had several, largely tasteless, maybe some boiled malt and sticky sugary caramel notes, otherwise just dull and boring. Drank to be sociable.

Can. Deep brown body under a creamy, white head. Malty aroma. Taste like watered flavoured caramel. A bit smoky impression. Can’t find the bitterness. Insipid (02.02.2007)

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2007 A Mes rate:
Half from the wonderful (not at all) Cherry Orchard in Newington. Had this listening to the local "talent" slaughter Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd. It has to be said the beer matched up to the quality of the music. So watery I could have put a goldfish in there and it wouldn’t have died. Nothing in the nose or flavour. The only thing of note was a slight bitterness to the finish. Yum!
