Bottle on the 2nd Friday night is Bottled Beer Night 2014. Bottle from B&M Canterbury. Deepish clear amber colour with lasting off white head. Crappy toffee caramelly aroma. Not diacetyl. Just I donít like this sweet toffee thing. Just sweet and not my thing at all. Give me a clean fully attenuated lager any day. Nope. Not for me.

maeib (8726) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2013 Bottled 28/10/12. A classic brown coloured beer with a white head and lace. Very ashy and grainy in the nose. Dry in the mouth. A short finish ending with a bit of Caley sweetness. Exceptionally malty and very low hop quotient. An acquired taste. Score 2.6
Subsequent rating scored 2.7 Score unaltered
