3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (£1.70 from Tesco):
Malts upfront with a bread like aroma and some sugar but not a lot. There is some darker fruits too with fig and some raisins and prunes featuring along with a bit of sweetness, all of which is quite light.
Fizzy, clear brown colour with a centimetre tall head that is foamy looking and halfs in size.
Malty upfront with some sweet, sugary malts and a lot of darker fruits including prunes and raisins from the nose. There is a bready taste as well and some sweet, earthy flavours with a light sprinkling of hops.
A thick, almost full bodied beer with a sweet and fizzy feel to the beer and a slightly dry finish that has good bitterness, a general fruity feel and strong carbonation.
Light tasting beer that is a pleasant way to start the evening without being all that strong. The majority of the taste is a malty one with some darker fruit that is pretty refreshing and goes down well with a good balance.

Clear dark amber with a small head. Aromas are sweet biscuit and toffee malts. Flavours are sweet toffeeand caramel. A malty treat without being too cloying. No great finish but still nice.
