2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Global Wines, Bearwood. Smells not too good - a bit caramel, a bit like wet cagoule. Flavour is a bit too strong and slightly sickly, with a sweet nut kick. Not terrible, but not something I wanr to try again.

Bottle. Its a long time since I tried this one and was very surprised to see it on the shelves again. Hoppy aroma upon opening with a pale yellow appearance.Slightly bitter with a medium body. Pleasant although not sure if it was as good as when I first tried it some years ago.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Holy christ - this is Peroni Gran Reserva under a different name. I’m not joking, I’ve got both side by side and I can’t tell the difference. Conclusion - Heller bock from SABMiller = English Strong Ale from Heineken => Neither of them are what they claim to be, they’re just mass-produced muck.
