3.7/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a brown sugar body with sporadic light covering of tanned head.

Big aromas of brewer's coppers, malts and syrup.

Real sweet treat big treacle flavours warmed through with yeasty bitter snaps then finish with a hop kick and a jump.

Nice low key carbonation and good solid but far from heavy going mouthfeel produce a very surprising well rounded beer that is both highly drinkable but also really enjoyable.

3.24/5  rDev -8.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

500ml bottle BBD 30 Apr 2013 poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 13 Apr 2013.

Light brown body with a tanned head of fairly deep foam.

The nose and taste are sweet malty in nature: roasted/toasted caramelised malty molasses, slight hop finish but otherwise this is a malty brew.

Average body depth, smooth enough, but a long way from a rich or creamy feel.

OK, but not great.
