2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A clear Amber color with an off-White head. Floral, Caramel, slight wood in the nose. Thin bodied but decent bitterness up front, a bit of sweetness from the crystal malts in the middle. They seem to have a distinct taste I can pick out, candi sugar with a touch of copper. A moderate bitter follow with a clean finish. Not too bad but too thin for my taste to really say it’s good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours deep golden with an off-white head. Sweetish hop aroma with apple notes. Flavour is equally sweetish and hoppy with notes of apple. Malts as well. A bit thin, though, and not a whole lot bitter.

I expected this to be a run of the mill biter-but it wasn’t.It has a wonderful bitterness that is not overpowering.Pours with a big head.
and a slight trace of lemons. A lovely session bitter.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
660ml Bottle. When opened at cellar temp some of the beer foams over (happened twice). When chilled problem does not arise. Not exactly flavoursome and exciting. Slightly overcarbonated but apart from this fairly drinkable in a boring way.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Morrisons 99p. Thin brown gold and virtually headless. Grainy nose with only a hint of fruity hops. Light palate, fairly well balanced if a little bland, poor finish. I have fond memories of this, so I’m a bit pissed off this is what its turned into, will try again...it’s only 99p.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Vinous aroma with biscuit and grapes. Some hopbitterness at first, immediately follwed by a biscuit-like sweetness and hints of caramel and licorice. Just a bit of bitterness in the aftertaste. Thin to medium bodied. Unexciting beer, lacks life and bite.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not enough alcohol. Or anything else. All in all, this beer lacks uumph! It’s very nice and polite and rounded and bitter. But there isn’t enough of anything.
