Appearance: brown. Just one word is enough. It is the definition of brown. When you look at it, there's an initial golden moment, but then it turns to dull. There's no other way to describe it.
Would you buy 2?: yeah I have. There's no denying it.
Would you buy 4?: (long sigh) life is short, time is crumbling away. To reach out for another 2 of this ale: would you be reaching for your destiny, or chasing a shattered vision?

Rating (out of 7): 3*** sad.
Location:Beulah Rd,Merton,United Kingdom

Location:Beulah Rd,Merton,United Kingdom

Taste: Oh boy! Strong! This could be mother's ruin. Smells like pure malt. Tastes alcoholic but pleasant and warming. But I was warm already....
Appearance: surprisingly opaque. Chestnut brown.
Would you buy 2? Hmm. For a friend to make them happy. Or to get an enemy drunk.
Would you buy 4? I can't see it for myself. For four others?
Rating (out of 7): 4**** not classic. There's an air of homebrew about this one, but it's strong enough to shake a four out of me.
Taste: Shockingly delicious! It's light, but it has flavour up the wazoo! It's dry, with a hint of deep fried sugar cane. Lovely.
Appearance: initially worried by the light appearance of this beer. But it was a deception. Nice tan label.
Would you buy 2? I wish I could.
Would you buy 4? Take me to your (nearest ale) dealer!
Rating (out of 7): 6****** a high accolade. Could Bath Ales be the UK's most consistently delicious brewer?

Taste: although this is a war based ale, it's an interesting story involving drinking brandy from a corpse infested source, so we can be lenient. Smells boozy, tastes subtle. It's pretty retesting though. I want to say more. But I can't. Stings the throat.
Appearance: runny honey
Would you buy 2? I was given a crate...
Would you buy 4? It would be great on the beach. Maybe then.
Rating (out of 7): 4**** not extraordinary. But sweet and tasty enough.

Taste: this hoppy taste doesn't go anywhere spectacular, but that's okay; I'm sat in the sun and this ale is like tanning lotion for my taste buds!
Appearance: bubbly orange
Would you buy 2? Yes, it's nice and light.
Would you buy 4? If there were no other choices... Under duress
Rating (out of 7): 4**** tasty, not ground breaking
Tuesday, March 15, 2011
Taste: Woah! Delightful! If a piece of sessile oak was drinkable and delicious, it would be like this. Bit of a fizz, like a bumble bee passing through a pleasurable beer garden!

Would you buy 4? Whilst on a pancake binge...
Rating (out of 7): * * * * * (a great 5)

Would you buy 2? Non monsieur.
Would you buy 4? Sorry, I'd be pulling toads out of my throat for weeks.

Taste: yeah, it's really nice. The best ale we've had here. But it's not grabbing me by the bollards. Smells like 'playing it safe', the easy setting on Streets Of Rage. However, there's a lot to be said about driving down the middle of the road.. Can millions of brown drinkers be wrong?.... Whoa!!! Controversial.... This has turned into quite the debate. It's a well known "session" beer. My question to you is this; are drinkers that love session beers afraid??? Afraid of what's out there? Take a risk for goodness sake!!! Oh, it tastes like a slice of your stereotypical brown.
Appearance: Rusty water peppered with copper coins.
Would you buy 2? Yes, of course! But that's the problem isn't it?!
Would you buy 4? Christ! Maybe? I guess I would. What does that mean? It's an ale paradox.
Rating (out of 7): 4**** the debate rages on...
Taste: Absolutely disgusting! Like an old man offering you re-wrapped sweets.
Appearance: Untrustworthy syrup.
Would you buy 2?: Only at gun point.
Would you buy 4?: "Boy, you crazy!"
Rating: 2 - Don't shove grandad sweets into my ale!
Location:The Steeles, Chalk Farm
Taste: smells like a meat pie. Tastes like blood. A delicious lingering flavour. This is great taste-time. PANG!!!
Would you buy 2? I don't know. It's rattled me. It's giving me the clogs.
Would you buy 4? It's too much for any man.
Rating (out of 7): ****4 I'm confused.
