Bottle: Brown with an off white head. Aroma of caramel and earthy hops. Flavor, lightly bitter, some caramel and pale malts, biscuits. First time I had this I could barely drink it, I didn’t hate it as much this time around. Still not something I would pay for normally.

Chestnut brown with a long lasting cream head; very slight carbonation; rich malty aroma; full bodied and sweet with a taste of stewed fruit and a touch of chocolate amid the malts; aftertaste is refreshing and not too bitter. Much superior to the cask version.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml can. Red colour, enormous rocky and creamy head. The aroma is of malt with a light citrusy note. Medium bitterness, balnce between malt and hops, and a metallic feeling, surely for the can. Not outstanding, but a nice ale, easy to drink and refreshing. English ales are always nice to drink.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
568ml bottle, 5.2% a/v
Pours darker then expected, a very deep nutty brown colour. The head is also brown,, with some fine lacing on the bottle. The smell is caramel, citrus and a nice hop kick. The taste consisting of much the same. The crisp hop finish is fantastic and this beer goes down well. Something to drink with the lads.
