3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pours a dark cherry wood color with a farily large beige head. Aroma is slight musty grass, fruit. Taste mild grass hops with some caramel. Finish is mildly dry. In between the sip and finish there was a very distinct layer of water as far as feel and taste ( as in liquid with no taste) very odd as it happened only a couple of times.

Bottle pours a clear mahogany body with a one finger beige head. Sheet lacing left behind. Aroma of bready toasty crystal malt and floral and spicy hops. Faint note of mineral in the taste, joining with bitter unripe pears, toasty malt, and dominating floral and spicy hop bitterness. A decent English bitter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear and carbonated red with a huge solid head that slowly began to resemble a tree stump. British crystal malt, minerals, CO2 and spicy hop aroma. Straightforward caramel malt flavor, fruioty and clean + lightly tart with supporting maltiness. A bit oxidized. Finishes with perfect bitterness and lingering sticky hops. Pretty good but I would like to have it on draught.
