3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
I expected this to be a run of the mill biter-but it wasn’t.It has a wonderful bitterness that is not overpowering.Pours with a big head.
and a slight trace of lemons. A lovely session bitter.

660ml Bottle. When opened at cellar temp some of the beer foams over (happened twice). When chilled problem does not arise. Not exactly flavoursome and exciting. Slightly overcarbonated but apart from this fairly drinkable in a boring way.

Bottled. Pale orange colour. small bubbly head. Weak hoppy aroma with hints of vegetables and fruit (weak). Hoppy flavour with caramellish and hayish hints. A bit mouldy too.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Morrisons 99p. Thin brown gold and virtually headless. Grainy nose with only a hint of fruity hops. Light palate, fairly well balanced if a little bland, poor finish. I have fond memories of this, so I’m a bit pissed off this is what its turned into, will try again...it’s only 99p.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Vinous aroma with biscuit and grapes. Some hopbitterness at first, immediately follwed by a biscuit-like sweetness and hints of caramel and licorice. Just a bit of bitterness in the aftertaste. Thin to medium bodied. Unexciting beer, lacks life and bite.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not enough alcohol. Or anything else. All in all, this beer lacks uumph! It’s very nice and polite and rounded and bitter. But there isn’t enough of anything.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear amber colour with small off white head. Malty nose with a slight sweetness along with a hoppy bitterness. Flavor is initially malty with a sour touch, then becomes more bitter into a fairly long finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells like an old shoe, amber color, low lathery head. Stale hops arriving quickly after a thin, weak malt body departs. Pretty normal British ale...actually below average when you get down to it.
