4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Another winner from several new (to me) English ales that I have purchased recently. This is, simply put, good beer. It’s not Imperial anything, it does not have extra extra hops or malt, or funny flavorings - no, it is just a well made, good tasting beer. Sometimes that’s what this is all about. This is real tasty stuff!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a very clear dark brown color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose seems to have quite a few grains coming through, and only a little grassiness on the nose. Taste is pretty light and only very slightly bitter, and hints of toasted caramel. OK, but nothing great.
