2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
I really thought this one would be a classy and classic British beer experience. Well, it turned out to be a massive disappointment. A watery, slightly bitter beer with smoky hints is just not the right one for my tongue. Drinkable - nothing else.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Like expected, this beer turns out to be quite roasty-smokey, something in this combination and in being so far in a beer,is something I just canít stand. I mean, who likes to drink smooth blended smoked sausages in a beer? Maybe you have to be a big smoker to really enjoy it - me, as a non-smoking person certainly doesnít.... Anyway, pours out clear amber, low head, medium body. Nose of roast and malt. Taste of malt, roast, dust, smoke, sausages and woods. Awful unpleasant to drink, didnít enjoy it.
