BlackHaddock (4995) - 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.

ralphdot (1007) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2011
5.0%, amber with a nice head, nice hop aroma, fruity hopy taste, quite a nice bitter for a supermarket’s (Asda Wal-Mart) own beer.

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.

Ungstrup (30812) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2011
Bottled. A nut-brown beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of hops, elderflowers, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of hops, malt, and caramel, leading to a dry roasted finish.
