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).

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Aroma of butterscotch, malts and light hops. Dark brown color, small brown head, good lace. Light sweet, light butterscotch, caramel, light nutty, bread and cookie. Light sticky and light dry in the finish from the hops. Enormous surprise and best low alcohol beer I ever had. Not complex like the bigger brothers but still very flavorfull.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Interesting dinosaur of this now forgotten style. Dark clear brown with a thin tan head and no lace. Very low aroma of toffee and cookie. Palate is very thin, even watery, with mostly caramel malt. Not terribly sweet, but not bitter either. Very mild indeed.
