3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Amber colour, huge head, big particles of yeast floating around. Aroma is fruits, floral notes mild wooden notes as well as some acidic notes. Flavour is fruity, floral, a bit yeasty. Otherwise a quite nice thing.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
BCA (from Bottles of Botley). Certainly not the worst white star beer I’ve had but not great. Smoky caramelised malt flavours with slight sourness. Just about drinkable in a masochistic kind of way.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Golden, orange with floaties and an off-white foam. Aromas are caramel malts with toffee and sour fruit - I assumed it is tainted, although looking at the other ratings, possibly not. Flavours are sweet and sour with oranges. Fairly hoppy. Still seems tainted to me.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle Conditioned, 500ml. Flat orange brown, no head, cloudy. I had seen Gazza’s rating of this before I opened it and I was hoping that the BC version would be better, but no, there was a sharp acidic nose on opening and a flat sludgey liqued poured out, and yes I was very careful how it was poured. The beer was torpid, yeasty, heavy in tobacco type flavours and basically awful. I checked the BBE and it was April 2006 and it was stored (after purchase) in my normal place, this is just a bad beer and I couldn’t finish it, rare for me!!

Horrible phenolic burnt caramelised fluid bearing no resemblance to beer. (Cask from Babbington, Derby)
