3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
I sense the a spicy caramel aroma and slightly floral hop aroma. The taste has chocolate malt sweetish taste which is accompanied by fine ripe berry and slightly nutty flavor. Coffee?, although the coffee flavor is said to be very weak. The hops are sufficiently adapted in this ale and stands out as a fine finish that sets a nice edge to this ales sweet tones. The hops are slightly floral (typically British) and contributes to maintaining a malty sweetness in an elegant way. My overall impression is a malty ale with an emphasis great taste and balanced malt which do not compromise with bitterness, but is in good balance in the overall impression. The carbonation is soft and contributes to the good and long aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the brewer’s own stand at the Good Food Show at Birmingham NEC. Deep amber. Big malt flavours with lots of straw and toffee. Very English in flavour, and none the worse for it. The booze is well-hidden, unlike when I had it on cask. This is surprisingly good actually.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. 6.6%. Best before 01.08.17. Pours a slightly unclear, dark golden/amber, with a fluffy, light tan head. Good lacing. Fruity aroma; apple. Light malt in the background, slightly roasted. Light dusty, fledgling hints of cardboard notes as it warms. Flavour is sweet apple, again with light malt in the background, but this time more molasses-y. A bit candy-like. Bitter hop finish, grainy and with a light alcohol bite. More apple, and a spicy hint. Lingering metallic note as it warms. Overall so-so; not really bad, but very apple-y, too much actually, and a bit unbalanced. 23.11.16.
