On a hot sunny afternoon in a Devonshire pub garden Tribute seemed the logical choice.

Very light in colour and lively and sharp in taste.
Quite a hoppy presence both in aroma and taste, but not overbearing. For me this is definately an afternoon pint and probably sunny one at that. Of it's type this is one of the best i've tasted, beaten only by Saxon from Cheltenham's Battledown Brewery.

500ml bottle bought from Grape Expectations, Ballyclare...

Poured a nice coppery orange colour... Slightly off white head poured quite thick and foamy and faded to very thin layer... little or no lacing...

Aroma - Light toffee malts, fruity (oranges, raisins, grapefruits), nutty sweetness, grassy, spicy hops, biscuity / bready notes...

Taste – Juicy fruits (oranges, lemons, grapefruits), light toffee malts, some honey sweetness, nutty... everything mabe just lacking a little depth...

Feel - Pretty smooth. Light bodied. Very drinkable - would make a good session beer...

Overall - A pretty good beer... Definitely worth a try...

This bitter poured a clear, amber color with white foam that settled. The smell was mild malt and mild hops with a hint of bitterness. The taste was buttery diacetyl upfront with good maltiness and modest hoppiness and a touch of breadiness. The mouthfeel was smooth with a slight sharpness initially upfront. The body was medium with low carbonation. The butterscotch and hop flavors lingered. This was not a bad bitter overall, and was thirst quenching.

Smell, quite fruit, some hint of berries, perhaps elderflower

Taste, quite dry, some hint of fruit again, slight hop bitterness, some malt profile

Pours a caramel brown colour with a big off-white head with beady lacing left.

Aroma is of biscuity malts, slightly bitter, and a red berry fruity tone that dominates.

Taste is malty, with fruity esters, apricots, redcurrants and a slight bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is good, drinks well.

Cask)Tastes like an English bitter. caramelly, with a juicy citric finish, some acidity, everything about it is pretty light and simple. Medium bitterness on the finish. Some floral notes. This is what i'd call a session bitter, very easy, and pleasnat enough to drink.
