3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On hand pump at The Grain Store. Pours a clear copper with a thin creamy head and mouth feel, mild hop flavours and no real bitterness. Not bad at all.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask @ Royal Albert. Amber and bright. Loose, bubbly head. The aroma is quite toasty with an integrated moderate diacetyl...very English in character, old school English at least. Toasty, buttery with juicy hop & acidity in the finish. A mix of brown bitter and juicier southern special bitter.

Great local brew from Newtown NSW. Great on tap but tasted in 500ml bottle. Great deep red brown colour, a light (but bit too) fizzy gas, no head, but great English ale taste and palate. Yum yum.

On tap @ Frankie’s Pizza. Seems slightly forced as a ’real ale’ but there’s no doubt the minerally toffee and hints of sweetness point to the real deal. Fizz is high and it does block the flavour somewhat, but i cant help but like it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
640ml bottle. Pours a clear medium amber, with a small off-white head, which lasts reasonably well and leaves good lacing. Floral and fruity hops notes mix with light toffee and caramel malt notes. Floral and sweet citrus hops up front lead into toffee malt and fruitcake in the mid-palate. Candied fruit and floral hops make up the finish. Not the most complex beer around, but a fairly solid bitter.

Was not impressed with this at all, Lacking flavour. It is still fairly drinkable, however not one I will seek to try again.
