500ml Bottle from Home Bargains:
Mild fruit notes and a hint of an almost metallic aroma mixed with some caramel and some sweet malts.
Reddish amber colour with a large, two-fingers tall head that is very creamy and thick looking as well as dome shaped.
Light caramel malts, some sweetness and a few earthy flavours along with a touch of fruit and a biscuit taste following this. This one taste much like I was expecting but is one that tastes pretty good.
Quite light bodied and fairly smooth with moderate bitterness and a crisp, sort of dry finish that goes down well and would make an excellent session beer.
Standard tasting bitter with nothing your not expecting but it is a nice one in spite of this. The body is a little light but it is very flavoursome, especially for the relatively moderate abv. and light body.

500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. Amber brown colour, not much head. Toffee malt aroma & flavour, bitter aftertaste. Bottle better than cask but still very average.
