Pours a translucent, reddish copper with a thin, tab head that fades. Moderate lacing. Sweet, slightly fruity aroma. Light, effervescent mouthfeel - a little thin. Light, slightly odd flavor. Raisin?

Bottle. Very dark brown with red tints and a firm beige foam. Aromas are weetabix and chocolate with lemon and wheat. Lightly smoky with cola and lime. Flavours are sweet malts with chocolate and cloying molasses. Fruity and malty in the finish. A bit sickly and thin. Average.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dep brown pour with a thick, pillowy off-white head. The nose is fairly toasty with notes of spice, cocoa and a little bit of roast. Sweet malt and a little bit of earthy hoppiness add a soft fruity note on the back. Simple sort of brew, but a decent one. Medium bodied and slightly earthy. There is an almost minty character on the back. Okay.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting.
Body is medium brown.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain/bread), lightly malty (apricot), with notes of souring fruit and bile.
Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter, unclean.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Surprisingly sour and dirty, and it has an unpleasant reflux-and-rotten-fruit odor. Embarrassing.
