UPDATED: APR 25, 2006 [bottle] Pours a dark brown color- tastes pretty malty. Dark malts, some light fruits. Moderately sweet- full mouthfeel. Enjoyable, for sure. Nothing too exciting, however.

500ml brown bottle from The Lighthouse in Manchester. Pours a translucent dark brown-red with nearly an inch of off-white head. Smells roasty with hints of English hops, but the aroma is not that apparent. Tastes roasty, malty, nutty with just a hint of herbal hops present toward the finish. Tastes are fairly subtle, but are all very pleasant. Smooth, medium mouth-feel with some carbonation but not too much. Very drinkable, this beer is. At 5$ per bottle, itís a little pricier than something Iíd drink on a daily basis. But itís a smooth, easy-drinking, solid English beer that I may pick up from time to time.

Bottle shared on the 4th- Poured an amber red-clear, head went away real quick. Malts and caramel with a hint of dark fruits. Light in carbonation-thin body but not a bad mild beer.
