Tap, red with a light malty-sweet nose, nutty-sweet palate, a little hoppiness coming through in the finish.

Picked up at Tesco Extra Miltpn Keynes, Saturday 24th May 2014 consumed at home Sunday 1st June 2014 Pretty boring really, I wanted to leave it at that but felt I should at least explain why. Pours reddy dark amber with off-white head. Lots of tinny flavours and toffee. Bit chewy, bit boring, actually a lot boring, its boring. A5 A3 T6 P3 Ov11 2.8

Martin243 (1006) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2014
Two 330 ml bottles, poured first into an English pint, which I topped up with the second. Dark amber with a persisting off white head. Fruity blackcurrant and sultana aroma. Flavour of fruit and nut toffee, and 70’s sweetshop penny chew. All fairly familiar, but lifted by creamy mouthfeel and a nice, if somewhat short-lived, bitter finish. I came to this hoping to be disparaging about a mega-corp version of craft beer, and ended up enjoying it as an accompaniment to cooking. Teach me to be mealy-mouthed.

Dorwart (2519) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Thin offwhite head of fine bubbles with very good carbonation. Deep reddish brown in color. Light malty and grainy aroma with some cherry and roastyness. Mild grains in the flavor with bit more cherry and a soft dry malts. Pretty bland and generic but one would expect that from a irish ale. Decent. Puchased and drank in Clonmel, Ireland.

Pours an amber/red colour. Taste is malty with some nice dried fruits, a good example of the style

berkshirejohn (5947) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2014
33cl bottle from Tesco, Camberley. Copper with a thin cream head; malty aroma; rather thin with a malty caramel taste; and a dry biscuity finish. Inocuous and harmless.

ryanscourt (1360) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2014
Watery and bland for a red. Not a fan of this style so these qualities are better for me. Would be an easy drinking session beer

Fra fad. Godt nok en kedelig øl. Toffee, karamel og metal. Ikke meget rebelsk over den øl, men rød det er den da.
