2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Iíve drunk a lot of pints of this, because often itís the only thing on tap in the pubs of North London. Never had the bottle before - probably because I never found those pints particularly inspiring. Bottle starts out better, seems lively, interesting richness. But then it fades - finish (and middle) becomes watery. And weirdly, the more you drink of it, the more watery it becomes. Oily in the mouth, thin taste - just a bit of caramel and bitter at the start and then it fades to nothing. Pass.

Bottle. Extremely bland. There's no sign of the suggested "malty richness" "tangy hops" or "sultana fruit" on MY palate thank you very much, Mr Wells. And I'm still waiting for the "long soft spicy finish". This bottle contains only faint beer-style water. Grrr.

BB 16/06/16. Potential low fill can (~1/2cm from top). Pours a clear, dark rust color with long lasting white head and good lace. Aromas are very light but bring oatmeal cookies and light fruit. Moderately oxidized flavour seems to confirm a low fill. Moderate undefined fruits in the flavour and caramel sweetness. Sticky full body with bitter, off-dry finish.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ruby gold pour with little head. Very dry and mildly bitter ale. Has some bite to it and the dryness leaves you smackin your lips. Some cherries and a long lasting bitter streak all the way through. Not the greatest but an enjoyable English brew.

Pours deep amber with thin off-white head. Aromas of caramel, so much that you can smell the sweet. Flavor is also caramel with some breadiness. Almost no alcohol perceivable, this is smooth stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the Elephant and Castle in Chicago. True pint glass. Amber color with slightly off white head. Taste has plenty of that English bread characteristic and a healthy caramel and toffee quality. Quick finish with a lingering bitterness that doesnít overwhelm. Actually tastes pretty solid with good crispness. As English traditional ales go itís not too bad.
