Toffee, caramel and dried fruits in the aroma. Dark amber with a off white head. Medium sweet and light bitterness. Light body with soft carbonation. Overall a totally OK ale, but not something to remember.

exeter (196) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 21, 2014
Pours a pretty dark gold almost a light red. very nice creamy head. kinda smells and tastes like a Guinness yet without the roasted notes but they are a bit noticeable in this one. after taste is just like a Guinness. also tastes pretty watery but a good kind of watery.. not like light beer, but it actually tastes like this was brewed with good quality water.. and it goes down pretty good. not something i would drink too often as it isn"t really my thing but its pretty good and i could see a few people really take a liking to it.

330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear chestnut brown, thin white head. Aromas of toffee and malt.Taste has toffee and not much else. Perhaps a light herbal hop linger. Finishes clean enough. Forgettable.

AshtonMcCobb (2119) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 14, 2014
33cl bottle. Appearance - dark amber with a decent creamy head. Nose - dark malt and toffee. Taste - more of the same. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a relatively fresh finish. Overall - it’s typical of many of the mass distributed beers. Neither does it offend nor does it excite. Better than some though.
