2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On cask at Young Henry’s, pours a hazy copper with a small white head. Aroma and flavour is pretty bland, with biscuity malt, maybe a touch of English hops. Clean but boring as hell.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, The Shakespeare Hotel, Sydney. A deep and ruddy Amber with a small but lasting and lacing off-White to light believe head. Mid-fruit aromas that border of tropical with gentle pale malt and nutty characters. Light to medium body, medium carbonation and a moderate length goth and intensity finish. Had a few of these over the course of an evening and it made for a great session.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hand pump (at Keg and Brew). Amber with a slight haze and an off-white, frothy head that lasts perfectly. Aroma is of floral hops with caramel, biscuits, apricots, gooseberries and some light buttery notes. Flavour is a mild grassy hop bitterness with zesty marmalade, biscuits, caramel, light toasty/nutty notes and a dry earthy finish. Light bodied with very soft carbonation, a watery texture and a good length finish. Amazingly well balanced and highly sessionable bitter!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
BB 28/08/2016. Poured a crystal clear amber with a one-finger off-white foamy head that diminished slowly and laced very well. Carbonation moderate. Aroma subtly of slightly sweet malt. taste slightly sweet with a hint of spices and low bitterness. Light to medium body. Crisp, smooth and slightly dry with a bit of an unpleasant tarty finish which is a bit off-putting. Ordinary.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
375 ml can. Red-brown body with a tight white head. Not much on the nose - biscuit mostly with some pine and flowers. Taste reveals a bit more with a grassy bitterness and a touch of pepper overlaying the malty sweetness. Lingering finish with a light biscuit aftertaste. Ok but a bit subdued overall.

Missed this on tap several times so I bought a can to try it. Pours reddish amber with minimal head and only modest aroma. A nice bitter base from the hops that lingered on the palate. A decent beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours dark amber with a fluffy off white head. Nose is pretty muted, a little caramel and some stone fruit. Flavor is lots of caramel, orange, a little stone fruit, and then a very very grainy, malt based finish with a decent dose of bitterness. I don’t have much to say about this. It’s clearly a ’crowd pleaser’ beer that’s meant to appeal to a less adventurous palate, and that really bores me. Two strikes Young Henry’s.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Amber with an off white head. Flabby aroma of biscuit, caramel, pears. Thinnish, moderate carbonation. Some passionfruit, vague citrus and pepper and a decent bitter finish cheer things up fair bit after the underwhelming aroma. Not bad.
