Bottle poured chestnut brown with small off white head, smells of toffee and spice with a little sweet smell, the taste starts quite quite bland and the aftertaste although better is still very weak not great

A very simple and ordinary beer, but that doesn’t make it bad. Everything is mild from the hop , floral, and citrus aroma, to the caramel malt and citrus taste.

5ocl bottle. Pours copper with steady bubbles and a good head. The nose has caramel and pine. The taste has ginger biscuits and All-bran. The palate has a medium body, a reasonable texture but the finish is a little too drying and dare I say, astringent, for my liking. Overall, I would have liked more fruitiness if this is a red ale.

Bottle. [thank you, Yespr]
Pours a nice, clear amber with a small, creamy, off-white head. Light lacing. Aroma is softly fruity, sweet caramel and a hint of piney hops. Highish carbonation, good dry mouthfeel. Flavour is light caramel malty with some good piney and flowery hops. Very dry in the finish. Acceptable.
