500ml bottle from Asda. Amber, Badger yeast aroma. OK in mouth. Bit empty due to the pasteurisation. Some candy sugar. It promises fruit and spice on the bottle. Yes there is some good rich fruit cakey fruit and some spicy hop on finish. It’s got some orange fruit to go with the Badger yeast character that runs all through it. As Badger beers go, it’s alright.

<i>A Mes rate: cask at the Crosse Keys ’Sporks.</i>
Very dark copper with a thin white bubbly head. Fruity malt aroma with some slight earth and very delicate hoppage. Flavour is tea and some more fruity malt which is a little too rough at the edges. Earthy finish. Pretty dull.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Half pint at the Capitol, a Lloyds No.1 Bar, in Dundee and a third pint at Standing Order in Edinburgh. Deep, rusty-brown body. Laceworks on the glass, but missing head. Weak smell of citric fruits. Light spicy fruits to the my taste buds with a few bitter endnotes. Rather watery in the mouth and, in fact, pretty anonymous bitter [07.11.2008].

Bottle from asa. Aroma is appley, caramel, toffee apple, basicly a very pasturised green king type beer. Taste is similar, but the malty sweetness isnt too over powering and its quite easily drinkable. But i wont ever have it again.
