Bottle rhythm+booze. Light chestnut colour no head. Aroma is roasted malts and dark berries. Taste is roasted malts a bit a smokey. Medium body low carbonation. Not a bad drink like a cheap newcastle brown ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pours clear coppery brown. Aroma is malty caramel. Sweetish hoppy taste hint of molasses and burnt wood. Smooth but watery mouthfeel. Very thin off white head. For the price it is a reasonable beer.

(Bottle): Pours a clear brown with small off-white head. Aroma has some sweet maltiness to it, a touch grainy and grassy. Quite a smooth fruity flavour, nice malty bite. Not much going on but itís fairly good.

It doesnít stand out so I may be being harsh but it completely failed to cut through pakora and samosa. Supped in the back of Cotteridge Wines.
