4th January 2009
A BBE 31.5.08 bottle but has been stored cool and dark. Hazy light brown beer. Dry and a little bitter although some smooth malt provides some relief. Boney dry finish - much to much so. Overall not a good un!

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle@Home. Citrus and light grassy aroma, a bit citric as well. Light amber colour, large off-white irregular head, fair lace. Almost no sweetness, yet hints of toffee, grassy, herbal, light medicinal. Astringent and dry finish. Strange stuff...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle from Waitrose Tenterden, bought while desperately looking for a toilet en-route to the channel tunnel. Amber colour, mid-sized fluffy white head. Malty and sweet but not too sweet. Citrusy hoppy flavours balance it. A nice brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle bought from Waitrose. Golden with some hoppiness. Some maltiness with other subtle flavour appearing.
Nearly but not quite a good bitter.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Deep orange colour. Yeasty aroma. Sweet, thick, with a weird off fruit sourness, almost cidery. Just not a good beer at all.

Cask at The Railway in Putney during "Spoons Fest in a Day" crawl, 2nd Nov 08. Amber with a slightly skunky smell. Soft malt flavour but rather forgettable alas.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle thanks to Jenners Snr. Dusty bronze thick with haze. Tired marzipan, oxidised/caramelised notes, dull malts. Buttered cherry aroma, hint of coffee, musty Fuggles. Swirl of froth. Caramel, marzipan, no real hop presence. Demolished by the Hampshire. So tedious.
