Bottle shared at home - cheers Steven! Pours a dark brown with thin tan head. Aroma is roasted coffee and chocolate. Very sweet, no hop presence. Good body for the strength. Sweet finish. I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would!

Iíll go with the flow on this, as I am completely unfamiliar with the style, and being mild, perhaps the palate is supposed to be light. Taste is very "roasty", oaken bitterness, burnt toast, some cola sweetness, but overall light in mouthfeel and aftertaste. Aroma is also very light and appearance is dark brown with minimal head. Intersting drink, would like to try another brand to compare notes.

I have mild enthusiasm for this beer, the crushing defeat on the cards and the related chances of a top four finish. I have greater enthusiasm for nomeansno, macaroni cheese and the next beer Iím having.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at home. Brown pour, tan head. Aroma of caramel, butter, some licorice, slightly roasty and some English hops. Flavor is sweet creamy caramel with butter. Thin watery body. Out of balance and too mild for my taste.

Iím now winning 8-1 in a game that only Iím playing. Think Iím on to a winner. This isnít too bad at all. Not even a waft of alcohol, some coffee and choc but it is all a little sweet and each flavour is only very mild. I guess that makes sense.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Inoffensive older style ale, very mild in character with a small sweetness and some small roasted malts for its flavour. Very dark with no head and a very light character making it very easy to sup.

500ml bottle. Pours a dark ruby brown-black, with a foamy tan head that diminishes and a malty aroma. Taste is sweet malt & cola-like, with a roasted, nutty edge. Smooth light body, medium carbonation level with a dryish finish. OK considerating the low alcohol level.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from one of the supermarkets. Poured like a flat cola with a broken tan head. The aroma is weak, but there is some dry maltiness there. The flavour is weak bitter and some malt and thatís where it ends really. The palate is weak and there is no real aftertaste. I donít dislike this beer, but at the same time, itís nothing special either. It it floats your boat then great, but sadly my boat is somewhere down there with the Titanic!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at the Cricketers, Shirley. It pours dark brown with a small beige head. The nose is sweet, flat cola, hint of toast and nut. The taste is cola, light roasted malt, weak coffee, toffee and cardboard with a dry, sweet finish. Light body and moderate carbonation. Not much to it really... A simple, sweet brown ale. Can?t say I agree with the official deScription of "full-bodied with a luscious flavour". Not too different to flat cola really!

Bottle. Dark brown no head. Sweet malt aroma. Taste is sweet malts and mild dark toffee. Watery on the palate. Easy to drink Mild, but maybe its past its sell by date now.
