500ml bottle. Pours dark copper with a tight head. Mild malty aroma. Very mild flavours, pretty traditional English bitter really. Uncomplicated and mild without much lasting impact.

Another M&M Bargains purchase for around £1. Medium/dark ale with a good head that stays all the way down the glass. Smooth malty and nutty taste with a sweet after taste. I would buy it again.

Not much in the way of aroma pours golden brown with soapy off white head tastes quite malty with a bit of grass thrown in and seems to of inherited that marsdens twang this used to be a lot better when it was the original Jennings brew drinkable but ultimately bland offering.

the aroma is caramel and fruity with some hints of garden berries... the taste is caramel with notes of roasted malt, berries, toast and nuts... sweet and bitter aftertaste...

Dark amber with no head; almost no aroma. Hoppy, weedy, and nutty. Thin palate. Not remarkable, but not bad.

En noget kedelig bitter, som skuffede mig meget. Lav alkohol-procent er mŚske Śrsagen til en meget vandlig smag.

uckelman (383) - Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2015
Pours clear, deep amber, pillowy cream-colored head. Aroma is mostly malt. Medium body. Bittersweet. I donít get much in the way of nuttiness in the flavor, contra the description---seems more toward toasted bread and caramel than nuts. Has a lot of alcohol mouthfeel to it for being only 3.5%, and a very dry finish.

Clear amber beer with a thick frothy head. Aroma is light malt. Flavour is malt, a touch of caramel and light bitter hop. Itís nothing special but itís decent enough.
