3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
World cup and England on tv. The sun shines and a pint of bitter in the glass. Can it go wrong? Oh yeah. England and World Cup are a bitter story. The bitter ale was far better than the bitter match. Uruguay 2- England 1. Nice deep nutty color with a fine off white head. Ok body and an good carbonation. Bottled bitter are better than handpull. Maltt, nutty, mild herbal and some fruity notes in both aroma and flavor. Decent ale.
[Bottle from Meny Begby in Fredrikstad, Norway]

Bottle Dark-reddish colour with a small white head. Aroma of toffee and caramel with a hint of fruits. More toffee and sweet malts in the taste with a subtle hoppy finish. fairly strong carbonation which makes this a very refreshing, drinkable beer.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - unknown origin. Poured a clear amber colour, with a dense off-white head. Aroma of caramel, malt and some leather. Cooked fruit flavours, with some berries and an earthiness. Finish was chewy grain, dried fruit and light spice. Their gluten free beers continue to be their best, in my opinion.
