500ml bottle from ASDA, BB Dec 2015. Cola black, big dense foamy white head. Aroma is ashy, twig, resin, sweet floral hoppiness. Body is light, foamy, low carbonation. Taste is sweet malt, ashy, soft floral hoppiness. Very good mild - moreish, balanced and extremely drinkable ... never gets watery. Impressed with this one. Under-rated.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours deep ruby/dark brown with a huge beige quickly dissipating head leaving lots of lacings. Aroma is flowery, some roasted notes, coffee. Taste is bitter up-front with grass, flowers, some malty tones before ending quite lingering bitter. Light to medium body, medium carbo, sharp bubbles. It says 23 IBU but it feels like it was way more. The bitterness probably comes through this much due to the fairly weak body.

Deep red-brown color, thick beige head. Dried fruit nose, brown sugar, roasted malt, coffee. Sweet taste, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, metallic notes, bitter finish. Big aromas and taste considering the low abv, but the taste fades quickly. Thin body, lively carbonation.
