3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml clear bottle 4.5% ABV. Poured a clear lightly carbonated red chestnut with white gold frothy quickly diminishing
head. Disappointing cereal aroma. Well balanced malt/ hopflavour with biscuit overtones & good bitterness. Well rounded mouthfeel with long bitter finish.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber with a good head. Malty aroma. The taste has citric sourness, a little sweetness, and plenty of malt. The fizz spoils it for me, but no doubt it will go down a treat with its intended constituency.

Bottle. Amber coloured with a slim off-white head. Aroma of malts, caramel and nuts. Some citrus in the taste along with a nutty malty flavour. Dry and lightly bitter. Nothing exceptional, but a drinkable bitter, that was better than I was expecting.
