MrJamesMcEwan (35) - SCOTLAND - MAY 2, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2014 Bottle. Pours cloudy reddy brown with a thick sized beige head that holds for a while. Full bodied, high carbonation. Aroma is malt, grass, with orange and a hint of spice. Taste is very malty, too orange & very dry poor bitter finish. Poor mouthfeel, high carbonation but disappates quickly in the glass. Dull & bad.

Nilz (365) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 23, 2013
500ml bottle from Aldi pours a clear deep dark ruby ale with slim white head. A malty aroma and a taste of mild bitterness, roast malts, and a little fruit. A little thin with a mild carbonation.

mighty_meadow (152) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - NOV 3, 2013
500ml bottle from Aldi, Irvine. Rating from memory, not the best I have ever tasted. pretty dull and uninspiring. Won’t rush out to buy again.

tombyars (1332) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - SEP 21, 2013
Tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival in September 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque dark russet in colour with a thin off white head. Hint of weak plum brandy in the fruity aroma. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Mixed malts give a juicy fruit loaf base with sweet syrupy dates and raisins. Very sharp prickle of earthy hops evident in the short aftertaste. Finish is malty and vinous with plums, black cherry and oak cask flavours full in the mouth. Tasted like an Old Ale in style with Mansfield Old Baily coming to mind.

Bottle from Aldi, Gorgie [180213]
Chestnut brown, clear, thin white head, minimal lacing. Aroma of brown malts, touch of hops, bit metallic. Taste of some roasted malts, bitter English hops, bit metallic, touch of fruit. Palate - soft carb, light to medium body. Finish - bit dry, twig hops, some metallic bitterness
Overall - Not a fan of this - very average
