2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Mud brown in colour and a heavy taste. Quite malty and sweet, but little hoppiness. Comes in a pint bottle though, which is a bonus!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.
