2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is a bit bland, grassy hops and caramel are the main attractions. Taste is similar with a bit more going on however alround a bit unintresting.
Bottle from Beers of Europe.
Appearance - bright amber, like an ember.
Nose - struck match. Malt bag.
Taste - light orange, dried biscuit. Then maybe orange pith on the finish.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a reasonably good finish.
Overall - ok. allmyvinyl (11181) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 13, 2017

50cl bottle from Tesco’s, Wokingham. Bottle-conditioned, so a slightly hazy chestnut pour with a billowing, creamy head; rich, complex malty aroma, with some floral notes; buttery, caramel malt taste, with some berry fruit; and an elegant spritzy finish. A well-made, farmhouse-style bitter. dogbomb (1257) - ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Cask at White Cross Beer festival 2014. Copper ale with a massssssive white head. Nose is floral, lemony hops. Light and breezy in the mouth imparting some lemon, tasty light biscuits, touch of toffee. Sweet, bitter, balanced. Gary (2094) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2013

I like the mustiness. . Maybe I got a bombastic bottle ? I don’t care , A damn nice ale ! Vermeerbrewery (2) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2013 does not count
Bitter and dry but very malty flavour. Not so much a floral aroma, in fact tastes like most if not all of its complexity must originate from the choice of grains and fermentables, not a variety of hops. Takes a while to unfold in its full complexity. Due to the high bitterness it takes some effort to get through all if the layers. Beesbeer (450) - WALES - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle. Hazy mid-tan. Thought it might have been called a steam beer because of the steaming head it created, thick and frothy. Aroma is biscuit and farmyard. Flavour is malted milk biscuits and resinous bitter finish. I liked it.
