2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Didn’t realise the low abv when I bought this, my heart sank when I noticed it, but it’s not like I just drink to get drunk...is it?..is it??? Anyway, this has a dense dark colour with a thinnish brown head, the nose is rich and malty, perhaps a bit one dimensional, but it’s what I was looking for so I cant grumble really. Palate is slightly sweet, again I expected that, it is a bit on the light side though, I was looking for a bit of body. Overall, not a bad beer, perhaps more in a mild style than a brown ale...ok tho!

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Burnt smokey malt aroma with the aroma of something dead??? Dark brown colour with very poor head and no lacing. Burnt malt flavour but very thin. Flat palate.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A dark reddish brown coloured beer with a light, frothy beige head. The nose is of sweet, rich caramel and very malty. The taste is sweet, caramel and toffee, with the malty undertones - similar to ‘Caramalz’!(Bottle - from the King’s Head, Thornham, Norfolk).

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
30 Jan 06 - Sweet malt and hop aroma. Black-brown colour, low head and poor lacing. Slightly sweet malt and plain flavour. Flat, thin, sweet malt and slight bitter finish. In a word.... ’PLAIN’.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A Mes rate:
50cl bottle from Asda. Must say I enjoyed this (enjoyed???) more than I thought I would considering the abv. Quite sweet, little bit of chocolate milk in there and something mildly fruity. Nothing much going on palate wise as you would expect but overall much better than I thought it would be. Couldn’t drink more than one though.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Interesting to see such a low rating... I thought this was excellent! Sweet, nutty, chocolate and brown malt aroma. Clear mahogany brown with tight, dense, fine bubbled, creamy, tan head that lasts forever and coats the glass. Sweet, nutty, biscuity, chocolate malt flavourwith low, offsetting dark malt finishing bitterness. Surprisingly dry, medium body with moderate carbonation providing for lively effervescence on the tongue. Bottle (BB JUN 2006).

Bottle from Sainsburys. Very dark ruby. No head. Not a lot of nose, slightly acidic in mouth with some hop on end. OK beer just not a lot of flavour

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Dark ruby with beige head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramelly, reflected in taste which is also quite sweet and toffee like. Little bit of roast at the end. Not bad, but not a patch on the many excellent draught milds out there.
