Clear dark brown beer. Light toffee malt nose. Light crisp palate, some carbonated bite. Reasonably rich malt with a trace of bitter toffee. Finishes crisp and dry. One dimensional but actually works reasonably well for it’s abv.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
This was available today in bottles at the Chequers, Barley, Hertfordshire. I was offered either a bottle from the fridge or one at room temperature. I chose the latter. It poured dark brown with a small off white head. Aroma was sweet and malty. The taste had some fruity sourness and a hint of liquorice. Mid bitter finish. Plenty of flavour for a mere 3%. Thought it was pretty good, really.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
275ml bottle. From Shropshire - vintage 1989. In good condition with a little carbonation - faint cardboard notes, and quite a dry mouthfeel even though there’s fair degree of sweetness in the flavour. A decent enough malty dark beer with pleasant sweetness and a rolling red fruit in the mouth - somewhere between strawberries and raspberries with some cranberries thrown in. A rollicking good brown ale!
