johndoughty (3716) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2005
A brownish bitter with a medium sized head on pouring.More like a bitter tasting mild or brown ale than a bitter.Quite pleasant for one of those beers that you often see on the shelf at ASDA but ignore.

DanielBrown (3626) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2004
Bottle from Asda, Minworth, West Mids. Copper with a big fluffy head. Gently tasty fudge aroma. Sweet and fairly tasty Bitter. Nice in the mouth: plenty plenty of toffee, cocoa and similar notes. Quite like an Amber Ale really, with some bitterness creeping into the the finish; although the dessert qualities are my overriding memory. Didnít blow my mind.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2003
Bottled. Clear, clean, amber body, with a lacy white head. Nice and hoppy with stronger aromas/flavours lurking around there as well. Good bitter hop kick to it. Slightly feral in a way.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2003
Bready malt and loads of dry fruit aroma. Plenty of hops to balance the sweetness. Odd flavour/sensation that I couldnt place. Not bad, the second bottle went very well with roasted chestnuts and brie.
