Toasted malt and caramel nose, some hops. Shimmering amber color, foamy head. Thin malt base gives way to a broad tingly bitter across the whole mouth. Somewhat bold overall and with character. Nice one.

Thanks a lot Chris! Pale copper color with a small frothy head on top. Medium alcohol, malt, caramel and molasses nose. Intense bitterness - grass and estragon in the taste -lasts long. Fizzy carbonation. Quite nice.

A Mes rate: 50cl bottle from Sainsburys. Nothing particularly special but a decent all rounder. Deleicate floral nose.Caramel and sweetish body followed by a crisp, dry and hoppy finish. Very downable and quite a satisfying brew.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2006
Bottle (from Sainsburys, BBE May 07). Nice aromatic hop aroma fruity with earthy floral notes. The accompanying malt flavours didnít really complement the hops - lots of caramel which tasted quite pasteurised despite the freshness of the hop aromas. The nice start made the fairly average taste of a fairly decent pasteurised beer a bit of a let down.
