KyotoLefty (9404) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle at Seiyu, as Gentleman JAMES. I suppose it must be that they Japanese don’t understand “Jack.” \298. Rather malty nose, some caramel, English hops, grass, some nuts. Dark amber-orange with a low, fine head. Sweet and malty, caramel and chocolate and nuts. Dry, grassy hops. Very dry finish. Clean. A rather typical bottled bitter, but good hops and nicely drinkable, and good for the price in Japan.

(Bottle): Pours a dark amber, off white head. Bit of a weak malty, fruity aroma. Similar in taste with a decent amount of hops - Fair bitterness too. Average.

dogbomb (1152) - ENGLAND - APR 13, 2013
Clear bottle. Dark caramel coloured beer. Huge off-white/yellowish head. Nose is toffee and caramel malts. Little hint of hop creeping in. Taste is very much caramel and toffee warmth in the mouth, with a finish of bittersweet lemon tang. A classic ESB taste with plenty of character for a supermarket brand beer.

BlackHaddock (6384) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2012
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.

Well hopped bitter in the distinctive Shepherd Neame way. A bit soapy in texture and taste.
