500ml can pours a darkish brown somewhat clear not opaque, foamy head and lively carbonation. Aroma of caramel, hint of toffee, some fruit notes. A little bitter, with some sour clean finish. Altogether ok, after drinking the 500ml I don’t feel much, maybe the low alcohol.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
Canette de 500 ml. Dégustée le 25 septembre 2011 (shaker). Bière limpide rousse. Col mince blanc crème, peu persistant. Très effervescente, bulles moyennes. Douce, peu sucrée, assez amère. Saveur un peu âcre de noix huileuses, plutôt sèche en finale. Manque de punch, plutôt fade.

A good bitter ale, burnt malt aftertaste. Caramel color, no sweetness in the taste for me. Nice looking and tasting beer.

AdiBeer (1082) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2014
Aroma: heavy on caramel malts. Appearance: dark clear brown, small creamy brown head. Taste: light bitter and sweet. Palate: short finish, malts again, light bitterness. Overall: used to be a big fan of this 80/-, now I find it a bit too malty. Bottle from Drinker’s Paradise, London.

mighty_meadow (203) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - DEC 25, 2013
Looks nice, smells nice, tastes nice. That’s about it really. Reminds me of sitting in an old Scottish isles pub on a Sunday afternoon. Dark fruits, burnt caramel, bit earthy. Would make you feel homesick if you drank this far away from home.

Very nutty, caramel malt. Fairly bitter but more of a burnt malt bitterness than a hop bitterness.
