3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2016 500ml bottle, chilled, poured into a pint glass at home. Attractive clear golden amber colour; minimal head; sweet, fruity aroma reminiscent of toffee apple; light bitterness with some caramel and fruit on the palate and a bitter sweet finish. Not overly complex as is the style, but it left a decent fruity-toffee taste in the mouth.

Bottles from The Cheese Shop, Chester and Fenwicks, Newcastle (2005). Amber coloured with a sweet red fruit and toffee flavour, malty notes and strong peppery hops, sulphur and sweetness on the warming finish. Nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask. Mid to dark copper shade. Patchy covering of foam. Notes of dark toffee, a kind of hedgerow-like blackcurrant fruitiness, and minor hints of spicy anise. Never setting the world alight, but an interesting enough mix of flavours that combine well.

Cask @ the Cholmondeley Arms, Cheshire with my Belgian father-in-law. Pours a deep amber with thin bubbly head. Dusty glass. Light fruity hop aroma with a thin, mediocre bitter taste. Rather boring.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nose is cereal, slight caramel,grain. Taste is as promised, is honey, red currents, apples a little citrus leading to a short lightly bitter sweetish finish hoppy finish with a slight metallic note. Mouthfeel is slightly to carbonated. Itís largely good but the metallic note really lets it down. In a strange way it reminds me of the bitter my dad used to drink in the 80s....

Pours chestnut brown. Smells and tastes like a real proper bitter, slightly doughy with a medium dry bitter ending.
