Pours dark brown with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is coffee, roasted malt and some grassy hop. Taste is bitter, piney, roasted malt, fruity and spicy. It’s nice.

Really nice chocolate malt aroma. Nice deep brown colour. The taste is a bit thin, hops quite peppery but there’s no real body. The palate is too fizzy to be blunt. Bet it’s a nice beer on cask though.

£1 bottle from B&M’s. Rarely ever get two of anything but I’d enjoyed this on tap whilst in The Lakes so I got two bottles. A very tasty beer for a 3.5%, with a rich malt flavour. Nice frothy head to start with which wasn’t lost. Best £1 (well £2) I spent this week.

At a modest 3.5% this bitter punches well above it’s weight in the taste arena, with a rich malt flavour and lasting nuttiness. That, together with it’s easy-going drinkabilty makes it more than the sum of parts. In summary, try it.

With an alcohol content of only 3.5, this beer is quite malty and nutty as it promises.

Quite fizzy, medium brown, modest taste, pretty boring really. I wouldn’t bother with this.
