Bottle. poured a pale copper colour with a full white head. The aroma is of Goldings hops and crystal malt. The beer has plenty of body is full and has the properties of a bitter, light on malt with a strong bitter finish. A good beer to me.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden and sticky looking. Pours without a head if so desired. Superb bitter aroma, plenty nutty, some toffee-sweet. Enormous but well balanced flavour - spoilt a little with a mettalic tinge, but otherwise a fullsome malt and bitter combination. Moreish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy, dark amber color with a small, quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of
toasted malts, caramel and bread. Mildly sweet malt and caramel flavor that quickly dries and finishes with a decent hop bitterness. Thanks to EddieG for the bottle.

11.2oz bottle: This one pours a almost clear, reddish-amber color. There was some off-white foam, but it subsides quickly. The aroma is faint, and all I can get is some caramel malt from it. The taste is OK, but rather uninspiring. I get some caramel sweetness, maybe some faint hops. Also faintly bready. Neither bad nor good. Just a beer.

Orange brown color with a tall dark cream colored head. Decent lace. English nose, with caramel, brown sugar, butterscotch, old wood and traditional hopsack. Initial toasty sweetness taken back by dry earthy wood flavor. Finish is dry and uneventful.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled, Pasteurised. Red brown beer with lasting though muddy coloured head. Strange aroma, can't pick it out but a little off putting. Should have a roasted malt quality, but it is more metallic, tinny but there is a pleasant hop flavour that saves the beer a little. Dark beer that doesn't quite make it.
