2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from a Manchester supermarket.
I can see why this type of beer has died out. Sweet malt, lots of sugary flavour, a little burned caramel gives a hint of bitterness, but this is too sickly..

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep, dark brown with ruby tints where the light forces its way through. Musty beige foams sits sparsely atop it. Heavily malted aromas much like a good sour-dough or rye. Slightly farmy with some dark pruney fruit.
Rich yet not too thick and very fruity. Sweet aftertaste. Quite an interesting and easily drinkable ale.
A little watery but rather smooth all round. Interesting though not what I look for especially. Easy to drink and with good fruity notes. Roasty and red-faced.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Deep, dark brown colour. Roasted malt aroma. Rather sweet, malty flavour. Quite full flavoured for a low alcohol beer but overall a tad too sweet.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Surprisingly tasty for its strength, Mann’s is malty with strong caramel flavours and a hint of chocolate. It’s nicely sweet and rather pleasant to drink.
