3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale amber, medium white head clutching at glassware walls. Thick lacing after the froth has broken down. Malty aroma. Candy, caramel, Fruity esters, a minimal phenolic note. Light to medium body. The flavour is malty as well. Caramel, candy, esters. Floral hops deliver light bitterness. Hoppy finish & aftertaste. Generally not my model of the style still enjoyable enough.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Pours gold with a thin, quickly disappearing head. A dry spicy aroma, with the flavour mostly bitter and a bit muddy. This is one of the most disappointing bottled ales, especially considering the exceptional quality of the cask version.
