Clear bronze pour, quick white head. Nose is deep malt, a little smoke. More sweet than bitter. Middle is dark fruit, medium kilned malt, touch of peat. Finish comes back dry and lingering. That’ll do pig.

This beer is distinguished by a pleasant malt taste. It is a little under-hopped, but its nice malt taste is worth the price. It is a nice amber color with a good head.

330ml bottle from a local B&M bargains: nice to see the 5.2% version here in the UK especially at such a low price. Anyway this live rate is taking place on 16th June 2015: I poured the bottle into a Westmalle Chalice at home with the dog at my feet. Autumnal ruddy brown with a red hue to the body, the off white head had disappeared by the time I finished writing about it: only a wisp and collar left already. Malty nose and a malty sweet flavour. The malty molasses rule the whole show although this is not sickly or over sweet, just that they dominate the hop content throughout. Smooth body feel and a delight for my sweet tooth, just wish the head could have stayed around. I do like to sit and stare at my beer before attacking it and a lack of head retention always lets a beer down in my opinion.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
5.2% version from a supermarket. Clear brown body, off-white head. Weak bready aroma. Taste is medium bitter, malty. Medium body, lively carbonation. Decent, but nothing mind-blowing.

Taste is caramel, pure and simple. Not much else there. Tastes like one of those caramel hard candies, but not as strong.

pours a clear copper with a creamy off white head. Aroma is malt, bread. The taste is quite pleasant. malty and semi-sweet. Just a hint of bitter kicks in and fades through the finish. Very drinkable. Good beer!
