2.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Cheap in a special offer and I was hoping to find a gem but didn’t drink more than a few mouthfuls. Just not my cup of tea - thin and watery, overly bitter given its little complexity, doesn’t sit well in the stomach. Nice amber colour and acceptable nose. Processed and artifical aftertaste. Glad to have tried any beer but won’t buy again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Bronze with a small head. Slightly nutty with considerably more body than you would expect for its strength. Dry finish and definitely a value for money bitter.

(Bottle): Pours a clear, dark amber with small white head. Floral hoppiness in the aroma with hints of malt. Taste is predominantly hoppy with a base of sweet maltiness. Also some faint smokey notes on the finish. Mild bitterness, medium body.
