2.9/5 rDev +1.8%
500ml bottle, poured into a nonic pint glass
Pours with a golden amber body. Off white head with good retention, some lacing
Smell, dry and musty in a similar vein to the Cornish Mutiny. Some dms, boiled corn and a little bit of bready malt
Taste, crisp and biscuity. Vegetal flavour once again along with some buttery diaceytl....some hop bitterness on the finish
Pretty poor, not something I'd have again

Oh dear, I have two more beers from this brewery to try (and review). This is the second I've tried and it isn't looking good. I hate knocking the 'small guy' but this isn't a great advert for the brewery.
Well packaged, this 500ml brown bottle has a lovely front label and the rear one gives you the normal information about ingreadiants etc.
It goes down hill very rapidly after that I'm afraid.
Poured into a Veltins Pilsner stemmed tulip glass it looked a dull gold colour with no head from the start, just a small white collar around the glass.
Boring is the word to describe this beer, very little aroma, watery and bland.
I hope the next two brews are a whole lot better than the first two I've had.

Sampled at the Newcastle Arms, Newcastle.
A dirty, golden to light brown beer with a thin head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass.
Smell is fruity with some faint malt notes. The hops are not very abundant, but there is a light English hop smell.
Taste is bitter with faint hoppy notes, my guess is EKG, or English earthy hops. A moderate fruitiness that is just a little estery. Body is quite thin, a little too thin. Aftertaste is light and short.

Appearance: orangey-brown, good clarity, spongey layer of off-white foam, good head retention
Aroma: chocolate cake, almond paste, malt, brown sugar, grass, iron
Flavor: dryish malt backbone with hints of old, weak coffee, perfume, bitter apple, and burnt caramel; finishes dryish with a lingering bitterness
Mouthfeel: medium body, mild carbonation, thinnish texture
Other comments: A bit vapid, thin and non-exciting. Difficult to write a dynamic review about beers like this.

a - looks ok. bit of a head that vanishes in 30 seconds. Yellowish colour
s - slightly citrusy, no malt to speak of
t - urgh. offensively inoffensive. so dull I'm going to have to sharpen all my kitchen knives because they've been to close to it
m - thin, dull, lifeless
o - everything wrong with British bitter
bought this and Pirate's Gold in Peckhams in Glasgow. Both hit the sink after half a bottle, and I only drank that much so I could accurately review them here (what a trooper, eh?). Will not buy again.
