Pint in the Fox & Duck, Sheffield. Cant believe Iíve never tried this before so here goes I did. Great appearance, amber with a creamy head. Nutty flavour and much more flavoursome than the smooth. Would always go for the magnet now its just not as available.

Very dry. This is effectively Jon Smithís smoothís evil twin. The Magnet is very dark in the glass, a tiny bit sweet at first, and bitter at the end -- and the bitterness stays with you for a while. If you like stronger brews, this one wonít disappoint.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A dark red colour with a thick white head ontop. A sweet aftertaste when drinking. Not my favourite drink in the world, as I wouldnt choose it over something else. More of a last resort drink, but still nice.

Cask. Ruby with a white head, laces very well. Malty apples in the aroma, sweetness in the taste, some dry bitter finish. Quite nice drinker.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
London - Warm, wine, cider aroma, similar taste but weaker, light and then gets a little bitter. Dark brown pour with no head and has a strange aftertaste.

Cask at White Cart, Busby. Brown with an off white head. Malt aroma. Some hops. Mouthfeel okay. Adequate hop finish. Just too boring, Iím afraid.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark beer with a reddish tinge, a lightly malty aroma and a fruity and slightly bitter flavour which is harsh on the palate. Overall a plain beer that has a quite harsh finish.
