2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Many notes of malt, amongst caramel, rises in the nose of this ale. The foam is confined to a thin layer. It tastes markedly bitter hops and has a small sweet tang of caramel. The finish is dry and long-lasting. A fine, but traditional British bitter without any major surprises.

Smooth bitter taste with low aroma and full palate, not too strong in taste and not too filling

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sweet malt aroma, a light bitter, quite high carbonation, and a bitter finish. Nothing special, but a decent summer gluging beer for the garden

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Difficult to be more objective with this considering how rnthusiastoc I was about the cask version of this beer 25 years ago. Still some old school Brakspear character there with some toffee and orange but they don’t marry well.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber beer with a thin head. Light, sour aroma. Flavour has a touch of sour fruit, a touch of bitter hop and a dash of caramel but not a heck of a lot else. Pretty tame, all things considered.
