3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 500ml. Aroma is a faint malt and honey. It pours a light amber body with a thin white head that all but disappears leaving the smallest residue. It starts slightly citrusy but this fades quickly into malt with a hint of honey. It finishes with a slightly dry bitter palate. A reasonable beer but it just doesnt have enough character.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear glass bottle by 11/02/13. Stale dry Bitter nose, pours dark golden with a rocky white head. Taste is dryish with light grains and nuts, clean light-medium body. Not much fruit here, a little restrained citrus, but I’d say this is more a showcase for the purity of Maris Otter.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Good lemony freshness, a little mineral, a few earthy elements.
Some honey, vanilla and peach notes, too. Very good, except for a
metallic hue amongst the aromas.
Mouthfeel: Thin body with an oily texture.
Taste: Bitter start, then a citrusy, dry taste. Some sourish notes. Not
much malt character. Good, but a bit shallow.
Finish: A mediocre finish. Dry, mineral with a short lasting bitterness.
Overall: An easy drinker’s brew. Not great, but I do appreciate its

2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
December 2007: Clear, full English pint bottle (568ml) with an impressive golden crest/shield type label.
Poured into a pint sleeve glass, surprise, surprise it is a burning golden yellow colour, the head a thin wispy white.
A nothing aroma for me, no hops, yeast or barley. Lets just say there was no smell, not even as the beer warmed. OK, vanilla might come and stale bread.
The taste is English Bitter and Pale Ale, a slight fizz, summer fruits and hops. Nothing overstated, but flavoursome never-the-less.
The taste does stay in the mouth, but there is a weakness somewhere, it is not watery but it doesn’t feel like 4.7% either.
Would I have another, most likely not, it just didn’t rock my boat at all.
