3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
A complex and challenging taste which is sharp, fruity and hoppy. The alcohol content almost feels a little high, a weaker version would still be a very complex and interesting taste I imagine.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle from Sainsburys served in a Shaker. Dark brown, offwhite head which disappeared, leaving something that looked like a glass of coke. Repoured into a large tasting glass whhich meant the head lasted a bit longer, and could be titivated by topping up: if I cut to the chase, this is a slightly stronger than usual brown English bitter that relies heavily on the malt, so is quite toffeeish in flavour, and sticky on the palate . I felt I was stuck in a seventies southern counties timewarp, wearing my best jumper with a chunky "English Pint" in my hand, and Richard Briers holding forth at the bar. If you like it, have at it, but not my thing at all.
