0,33L bottle (rebranded version). Pours clear red copper with off white head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is sweet caramel, fruits, and some English hops. Taste is very sweet caramel, dark fruits, and grass. Overall: drinkable, but nothing interesting.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Tesco, Inverness (5.2%). It pours clear dark amber/brown with a tiny beige head. The nose is toasty, caramel, cola, dried fruits and faint smoke. The taste is toasty, earth, wood, spice, leather, cola and plastic with a dry finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Very drying mouth-feel. A bit odd and I can’t say I enjoyed the experience!

A nice amber color on this one. Very smooth, not very complex. Some fruit comes through on the palate, with a semi-sweet finish.

A clear golden orange pour. Big grainy malt aroma. Somewhat skunky but malty sweet nose. Smooth bodied, light caramel sweet malty. A bit skunky, tasty but mostly caramel malt sweetness with very little hops. Ok.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
I think I found one of my new favourite beers.
Pours a clear coppery color with about a finger of two of solid just slightly off-colour head with a decent retention.
The aroma is extra nice. Some malts, some fruity smell but mostly biscuity and nutty notes, easily picked up by the nose.
The taste is likewise, amazing. Starts sweet and is followed by nice biscuity body, slight bitterness towards the end, and finishes with a nice spicy finish.
Easily drinkable, smooth, delicious. Just great.
