Stale smell and a bit of that in the taste too. Soft sweet biscuit. Light spice and cherry. Pretty unremarkable Iím afraid.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from Sainsbury's. Poured clear. Copper in colour with a lasting, frothy, creamy white head. Weak, sweet roasted malt aroma. Malty sweet in flavour with a bitter aftertaste. Drinkable but a bit weak tasting and sweet for me.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
amber, clear, white foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, full body, thick feel, average carbonation,
Reddish amber with white head. Quite carbonated but nevertheless a reasonable, fuller flavoured bitter. Sweetish fruity malt notes with a touch of pine leaf, some toffee and a reasonable hoppy finish. iíve definitely had worse.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Blander than I expected. A very light hint of maple but I think the bottle hammed it up slightly. Not much of a hoppy flavour either. Pass on this.
