3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear dark red, tan head. Fruity, nutty, musty caramel aroma with a hint of hops. Lightly sweet with mellow roasted malt flavor accompanied by sticky UK hops. Nice big body. Has a little astringency and the bitterness could be smoother but all in all a nice ale.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark mahogany-brown body, with only a small head. Noteably low in alcohol. Musty, putrid aroma- very malty, but no real defining characteristics. Thin body with simply caramel and malts, no complexity at all. Sour, sweet finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The one I am rating is old. Ruby red in color pours with a thick head. Smell like an ESB, fruity, malty and with Northern Brewer and/or KentGolding Hops. Tastes carmelly and bitter. Acidic finish. Good Beer!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep ruby amber with a smallish beige head and brief lace. Malty and molasses malt with a touch of bandaid aroma. Nice medium chewy palate. Low pleasant sweet malt medium bitter hops start moving back to caramel and toffee sweet but not cloying finish. Lotsa nice character for a 5.3% ale.
