1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
From BA: July 2007. Clear 500ml bottle.
Cheap supermarket beers often taste like cheap supermarket beers, this one fits into that bracket quiet nicely.
Dull copper in colour with a white head that dispersed very quickly.
Very little smell, some hops but nothing else I could detect.
Disappointing taste, watery for a 5% beer, nothing like a normal strong ale.
Overal a big let down, I will not be trying this again.

500ml bottle (ChrisO’s, post RBESG2011 Sunday) BB200904, drunk 201108
Sweet malty aroma, dull. Dark, but in a clear bottle. Naughty naughty, 4 becomes 3. Toffee and caramel dominate the taste. Super dry despite that. This has aged past its BB very well. Was probably quite a different beer when younger though. Finish is more toffee.
