"A warming rich dark ruby beer with pleasant blackcurrant overtones. The balance of carefully selected dark malts produce a smooth deep fruity background for the hop character to shine through."
Contains barley, oats and wheat.

Bottled, 500ml, pasteurised from Sainsburys, Banbury. Dark chestnut with white head. Deep dark malts that give a heavy fruity flavour without going into porter territory. Remaining bitter and dryish throughout there is a touch of hop on the finish to round the beer off. Quite reasonable methinks.

Fin (9674) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2007
Bottle from Sainsbury’s, Heyford Hill, Oxford, 21-09-07 This was a much much better beer than the Gales ’Swing Low’ rugby themed one I’d started the evening with. Poured standard brown colour, some fruit on the nose (but I didn’t get blackcurrants) tasted fruity and malty with real nice hoppy bite at the end which took me quite by suprise, not sure what the hops were but they certainly lashed out. Not bad at all!

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2007
Bottle from sainsburies. Aroma is bready and biscuity, citrus and grassy hop. Taste is similar but slightly over carbonated meaning it loses a bit. Alround a decent beer.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2007
Bottled. A dark mahogony coloured beer with an off-white long-lasting head. The aroma is dry and bready. Some oats and a little fruit. More bread in the flavour together with toast and a touch of coffee. Pretty good.

downender (7958) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2007
Bottle from Sainsburys. A special for the rugby world cup. Reddish-brown color with a decent off-white head that proved long lasting. Carbonation was moderate. Aroma of red fruit with a whiff of hops. Flavour was of fruity malt with a decent hoppy finish. Not bad for a pasteurised beer.
