3.88/5  rDev +19.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

500ml bottle bought from Sainsbury's...

Poured a light coppery orange colour... Slightly off white head poured quite thick and foamy and faded to thin layer... light patchy lacing...

Aroma - Toasted bready malts, nutty, toffee hints, light saltiness, some fruitiness (burnt orange, raisins, figs), very light hops, grassy / hay notes...

Taste – Bready / biscuity malts, light nutty sweetness, some toffee hints, woody notes, light fruitiness...

Feel - Quite smooth. Medium bodied. Very drinkable - would make a pretty good session beer...

Overall - A good beer...nothing ground-breaking but worth a try...

500ml bottle

Pours with a dark amber body, fizzy white head

Smell, biscuity nose, very simple ale characteristics, some sime crisp biscuity aroma, little bit of malt

Taste, smooth thick biscuity mouthfeel, little bit of hops but very slight, very little bitterness

A pretty poor and dissappointing beer, very dull and very lack luster

2.8/5  rDev -13.6%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Tasted by half-pint at my local JDW pub, the Half Moon, East End London.

A: dark orangey-cider hue with some chill-haze and a very thin beer head, low carbonation. Not ideal but acceptable.
S: very faint touch of sour fruits, plus a little input of malts, full-stop. Quite negligible overall, due to "over-chilled"+"off-the-prime" factors. (Maybe I should return this pint, I pondered...)
T: floral and a little sour-citric fruity edge of hops support a flow of light, juicy maltiness; an interesting input from stewed green beans, steamed lotus-root sustains in the aftertaste, along with an intriguing bitter edge not of hops but tea-leaves (like green teas+grated dried herbs with its dryish-sweet edges) lingering on the sides of the tongue.
M&D: smoothly-textured, slightly thin, and light-bodied--this pint is salvaged only by the finishing touch of complex bitterness. As mentioned above, it's not on form, but I look forward to tasting it again on cask, if only for the sake of the lovely bitter aftertaste shown in this imperfect pint.

Serving type: cask
