3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
dark amber colour, moderate off-white head; aroma of fruits (mainly apple), bread, and some caramel; taste is also bready with some roasted sugar and fruityness; less intensive hoppyness than I expected and a bit watery...anyway, itís a great ale for just drinking a pint of beer after an exhaustive day, nothing special, nothing extra, just a beer; never be your favourite, but you never say ínoí for it :-)

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark amber body with a small white head. Nose has herbs, spices and some malt. Taste is fairly neutral with a very mild bitter finish. Carbonation is very soft, almost flat and palate is quite thin. Not really that special.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark copper. Thin head dissipates quickly with fairly good lacing. Aromas are smoky caramel, leather and yeast. Flavors are muted brown sugar and caramel, yeast. Slight hop bite. Light mouthfeel with a dry finish. Overall, itís okay. It doesnít have much character, but itís not the worst beer ever. Itís probably a good representation of a traditional English bitters.

Not that flash, Iím not going to rush back to it. Quite bland and watery, drink it really cold if you have to.

Can from tesco. Malt aroma, low carbonation, creamy palate, a nice beer to drink, but try the kinggoblin if you can

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Pours dark red with dark cream head. Mild fruity aroma, but slightly watered down to the taste. The taste it does have is nice and malty, just a shame there isn't more of it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a copper red with a foamy white head. Hints of dried and stone fruits, apricots, cherries and plums. A slight bitterness to add complexity. Medium carbonation. A decent effort,
