2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Chewy, malty nose, with nice chocolate fudge and caramel. Brown with orange tints, medium head. Rather light and thin, a bit thinner than the nose leads one to suspect. Light body too. Not so special.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Clear brown tea colored amber with white head. Dry bitter grains, roasted corncob, some caramel sweetness, sugarcane. Light sweet and over moderate ground bitterness. Under or about medium body, soft fizzy carbonation, clean mineral watery feel, yet also a bit malty. Quite bitter and grainy with a thin syruppy sweetness. Very good drinkable bitter ale.
