3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a copper-red and has a rich, frothy head compaired to many similar ales. Malty aroma mixed between grain and caramel. I didn’t really pick upon the spicy aroma mentioned in the bottles deScription, but it does come through in the flavour. The flavour remains malty with a slightly bitter aftertaste. A pretty decent ale overall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from the bottle the beer is a beautiful deep amber red colour, with a nice beige head which froathes down to a nice creamy film. Really nice lookin beer. Aroma is grainey with strong fruit notes. The aroma reflects the flavor with a grainey, fresh baked bread flavor with notes of fruit, hops and malts. Judging from other peopls reveiws not to many people were impressed with the palat of this beer. I however found the beer to have a pretty solid mouth feel, texture was a little thin, but the carbonation helped pull it together and the finish was just dry enough to keep me coming back for more. All and all, a nice well rounded, solid English Bitter.
