500 mL brown bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: deep mahogany/brown beer with great clarity, moderate head of 1-2 fingers that dissipates quickly, minimal lacing.

S: rich and malty

T: although it tastes good, it doesn't quite deliver what the scent and sights promised. Not quite as interesting as I'd hoped, but enjoyable nonetheless.

M: kinda typical of an English bitter or pale ale--moderate carbonation and heaviness

D: would definitely drink again, but not gonna search high and low for it

What a name for a beer... BB Oct 09, served cool in a straight imperial pint glass.

A: pours a bright reddish amber hue, topped with a thick, fluffy light beige head with decent retention; carbonation remains light with sporadic ejection of large bubbles from the bottom.
S: savoury-sweet prunes with a slightly sharp tinge of citrus fruits comes pleasant and smooth, on top of very mild sweet black-tea-ish maltiness and (weirdly) a touch of coconut shavings.
T: a mouthful of Badger's unique mixture of peachy-floral scent and overwhelming biscuity malts is followed by apple-ly and tangerine-like English hops, while the floral aroma seems to linger well enough in expanding to the 3rd dimension, rendering an aromatic aftertaste on top of tired yeasty touch and tangy, thin citric hops. A tad chewy & dry (a bit like the undertone mixed of unsweetened black tea and roast nuts) in the end, perhaps the work of roasted malts added to the brew, and a healthy touch of salty-sourness maintains throughout the drink, a good sign for a pale bitter, really.
M&D: the mouthfeel, being slightly too fizzy for my palate, is not particularly dry to reveal a deep imprint of the roasted malts, while it's not clean either, showing a mixed palate of hops and malts here and there. Overall, this easy-to-drink, medium-bodied dark Bitter cannot score higher maybe due to the slightly messy flavour profile and palate, and maybe also due to the much similarity with so many other Badger's brews.

Brown 500ml bottle with a best before Date of Dec 2008, drank May 2008.

Poured into a Forbidden Fruit chalice glass.

Terracotta red colour with a wispy white trace of a head.

Toffee Apples came to mind as the aroma arrived at my nose, this was sweet smelling stuff.

The taste reminded me of Batemans XXXB, one of my favourite beers. Well balanced and full of all the good things an English Bitter should possess, a hop, malt mix with a medium mouthfeel.

I thought this one of the better bottled beers on the British market at the moment.
