3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl bottle from Ambleside Wines.
Appearance - amber with a decent head though it disappears quite quickly.
Nose - toffee and the merest hint of biscuit.
Taste - again promising biscuit but really toffee is the main note.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture but I wanted more bitterness on the finish.
Overall - decent but needs a cleaner finish.

I’m just not a fan of the buttery, caremelly butterscotch hops flavor that this beer has. Makes it hard to finish this 500ml bottle.

Personal favourite from the Winster Valley, had this at the brown horse, light golden amber in colour, good all round balance with a tangy fruit undertone

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium amber orange with a frothy lacy somewhat lasting white head. Smells of leaves, citrus (orange) with a sweet malt caramel. Medium thin body. Nice sweet caramel malt overall taste, light fruity berry with a chewy biscuit dry bitter finish. Overall nice solid caramel malt taste well balanced with the hop finish.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Wainwrights’. Deep gold brown. Tight long lasting head. Little aroma. Slight malty sweetness, but mostly dry, with modest bitterness. Much of a muchness with many bitters.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On cask, gravity at Banbury Beer Festival, 07.05.11 Pours mid amber with some big white bubbles, there is a slight haze to this beer. Lightly malty, touch of sweetness some honey and biscuit on the nose, not an awful lot to describe in the mouth but pleasant nonetheless. A7 A4 T6 P3 Ov13 3.3
