2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Ugly, thin-looking and transluscent amber, and a freakin’ clear bottle. Very chunky aroma, a little bit sodalike. Somewhat tolerable flavor. Thin and unremarkable. Is this brewery the Great Grains of England?

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy amber-brown in color, decent off white head, grassy and nutty aroma. starts sweet with a mild butter nutty flavor, pretty much bland, light to medium body and somewhat watery mouthfeel, not as bad as I had expected, very drinkable and non- offensive.

Although low in my rating this beer, was enjoyable. I agree with Mungo with this one. Somewhat toffee and cituc not bad.

Bottle. Toffee and citric hop aroma. Decent body with a touch of bitterness but just a touch syrupy sweet.

Not bad for at british ESB. Not much flower in the aroma, but the flavor has a nice bitterness and a little malt.

Thanks to austinpowers for sharing this one. This is a session beer. It pours a hazy amber color. The flavor is mild with a slight taste of hops.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours with a one-finger white head that fades to a ring and leaves some lace. Clear, golden amber color. Good carbonation. Nose is hoppy, no skunkiness; Starts with hops, finishes crisp and clean with some hoppy aftertaste but not as hoppy as some pales. $4.69 for a 660ml bottle.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Copper body and a sudsy off-white head. Skunky aroma dominates (the curse of the clear bottle). A light toasty malt element emerged after the skunk cloud diffused. English malt flavor with some woody hops underneath. Medium body with a fizzy feel.

This brewery sucks for the most part, I am not a fan of the beers I have tried from them. Mild malt aroma, nothing to it, some nuts. Thin whispy head atop a light amber colored ale. Flavor was boring, well balanced with a bitter finish. Creamy mouthfeel....better than I was expecting considering the clear bottle.
