I liked this. Good example of the classic UK style but carries a touch more alcohol and caramel / toffee malts to create a slightly bolder flavour profile. Nice mild bitter finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted 17/05/2006. 330ml bottle from Miramar Liquorland.
Gorgeous red-gold, bright, with a very light-tan head that collapes, disappears, and laces lightly. Toffee apple, grass and some mineral-like yeast notes on the nose - quite mild. Some nutty almond notes come through later. Dry malt in the mouth, well attenuated, with a strong grassy bitterness, a metallic note in the middle, and a lingering grassy hop finish. Light medium weight with a medium carbonation. Lacks a bit in the malt profile, only slightly more than an extra hoppy kiwi brown.
