From a draught can. Great head. Very creamy. Dark amber but still translucent. Not too bitter, some hoppiness.

Luvystypotables (607) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Aroma is a bit like skunk musk, a dark copper colour, balanced taste, a bit sweet, slight undertone of peat. Finish is a bit watery and has a hint of scotch in the palate.

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.

McTapps (3879) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2013
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 can’t 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 doesn’t.... 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, didn’t enjoy it.

teddybeer (2192) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 23, 2013
Bottle. Coppery color with an off-white head with medium lasting and good lacing. Aroma is floral, earthy and malty. Flavor is slightly caramel, moderate dry fruits, slightly sweet with a moderate bittery and dry final.

Not sure how to exactly describe the flavor that resides in this one other than "peaty". It has a nice malty flavor with a good body and light, orangish coloration. Bitterness is restrained and flavor is unique and delicious.

Draught. Had this at the brewery. I was not very impressed. I do like it better on nitro keg than on regular draught.

Had a draught can. The aroma is malty and nutty. Pours an amber color with thick creamy head. The taste is sweet up front but finishes kind of dry with some slight bitterness. Light bodied and creamy. Just kind of a so so beer.

#1 - A dull golden colour, with a thick Guinness like head. Tastes rather bland, rather sweet and slightly acidic aftertaste. I wouldn’t drink this again. *** After reading other reviews I feel I should give this one another go! I have to say the pub I went to was dreadful!! ...
