Ruby red color, nice creamy head. Sweet and slightly fruity aroma. Flavours of roasted malt, coffee and a bit of fruity sherry. Bitterness and some smoke in the finish. Aftertaste slightly sweet and malty. Thin body. Very drinkable.

If they made beer flavoured lemonade it would be like this. A bland featureless session beer. Generally known as "bloat" to my drinking buddies.

Yes, smooth… dark amber color. Some sweetness, but very poor, and not enough bitter.
Amber color. Thick creamy head. Light but pleasant hop aroma. Unfortunately the mouthfeel is too watery, without enough malt nor hop. The final is correct, but not enough aromatic.

Nice big creamy head with a darker flat body. Flavour is slightly bitter and tasted very metallic. Was a very smooth beer on the finish as it went down like creamy sludge. Will try again sometime on tap and perhaps re-rate.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Copper colour with a creamy fully lasting off-white head. Aroma is a mix of floral and a bit of citrus. Flavour is bitter
throughout. Palate is a bit watery, but is not as thin as beers with the same the same watery feel.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light yeasty aroma. Typical widget pour. Flat beer with a thick creamy head. Great beer if you think of it as an alternative to North American light beers (4%). Can drink this all day, but there is not a lot of excitement or depth of character. Enjoyable for a long period nonetheless. Smooth but not much on the bitter side.

Draft sample. Brown colour. A head so creamy you could walk across it. Lasted to the last mouthful. Flavour-wise a fairly standard UK Ale.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Creamy with a frothy head. Crisp aftertaste similar to Boddington's, but much like its cohort a real bore.

Nothing special about this one. Mine was served on a nitro tap. It's a very easy drinking beer with no tricks to speak of. I'd just as soon leave it behind the bar.

Nitro tap. Very smooth, very little aroma, lightly hopped, slightly fruity. Easy drinking session ale.

Lovely! Nice and creamy, not too bitter, and as the label says, smooth." 'Ave it."
