a - Bottle says "pirate's gold", has a yellow label. Beer is generic brown ale colour. If you hold it up to the light and squint real hard I guess you can maybe see a yellow tinge at the edges.

s - generic beer smell. The thing it reminds me of is driving past the old S&N brewery in Edinburgh, but without the unpleasent bits.

t - bit of yeast, bit of hops, not a lot going on. Inoffensive, but heading towards being offensively inoffensive.

m - eh. bit thin, bit lifeless.

o - given the choice between this and nothing, this. Between this and Amstel? Amstel...

Brown 500ml bottle, well in date and poured into an English pint sleeve. Served slightly chilled as asked for on the label.

Like all the beers from this brewery, it is well packaged with a pleasant pirate scene on the front and information on the rear of the bottle.

A good amber colour, not the golden liquid i was expecting from its name! It looks like an English Bitter in every sence (not much head and not completely clear).

The aroma reminded me of cider apples (not good in a bitter, in my eyes) a wiff of toffee sweetness stops the smell from ruining the whole experience. There is also a hint of hops within the smells coming from the beer.

Basic bitter flavours, yeast, hops and a mixed bag of fruits (apples, pears and peaches?).

Conditioning seemed a little poor, not flat, but not lively either. If it was a cask beer I would say it was past its best and the barrel had been open for over a week.

I am having trouble enjoying beers from this brewery. Designer labels drag your eyes to the bottles, but it is what is inside that decides if I return for more. I wont be buying any again.
