3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. For a 2% beer, this is insanely good. Comes across quite citrus driven with a mild sweetness behind a lightly roasted body. An absolute quaffer as you’d expect for a 2% beer but the amount of flavour bursting out of this is incredible. Well done

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Black with a beige head.
Aroma has herbs, grass and citrus.
Taste is dry chocolatey and roasted.
Thin body, soft carbonation.
Short dry after taste.
Unusal aroma for a stout but then again, it’s a Unstout.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark brown, not much head. The aroma us good - lots of fruity, leafy hop as well as toast, dark choc and muscovado. Body is modest and the palate is roasty...with a bit of harshness. In that sense, I’d prefer more sweetness.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black body and stable head reminiscent of a higher alcohol brew. Citrus and floral hops, crisp yet dark malts, surprisingly not metallic or too dry. Impressed. Okay the body reveals some of that super low abv, being a bit thin. But I regress, this is an achievement of great size, with a characteristic roasted malt bill and an ongoing citrus note for the hops. Very well made and tasty too. And not too expensive!
