bottle. Amber-bronw colour, large off-white head. Interesting oaky-sour nose, reminding me of sour ales. The sourness, however, is hardly present in the taste. Malty, hints of caramel and s good amount of bitter hops. Slightly fruity and acidic.

Probably drank this a bit too cold so it went down quick and easy enough. Slightly hazy copper body with a decent head that wanted to hang around. Good nose, dusty, hops and some malt. Taste is straightforward, hops again more than the malt, moderate bitterness and carbonation, sediment, a bit of lemon on the finish.

Bottle, Morrisons, West Kirby. Dark amber with a decent head. Malty aroma, nothing too enticing. Some nice hoppage in the flavour, which was well balanced and finished dry. Much better than anticipated.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Copper with a thinning white slick. Nose of soil, rust, hazelnut yoghurt and Darjeeling. There’s some decent malt and hops in there, buried in yeasty weirdness. Ash and chocolate orange sprinkled with grass cuttings and clove. Nutty like broccoli, crumb of pistachio. Odd but not unpleasant like most BC English beers. You just have to grit your teeth and get on with it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks to Chris and Judy for this bottle. Copper amber with a white head. very hazy, full of sediment. Malty aroma, rather vegetal with a little burnt chocolate. Musty, rather indistinct taste with some sourness and slight bitterness. Many disparate elements here, not really working together.
