2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle: A no nonsense brown ale. Not much to smell but a little biscuit and chocolate on the palate but maybe a bit watery which you’d expect with the percentage. Still, always cheap for just £1 in my local supermarket and I buy it from time to time.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Old style brown ale. 2.8% ABV and feels it. No real depth of flavour or aroma. Looks good for a short time with it being very, very dark but you know the beige head is too thin to last. Only £1 for a 500ml bottle so no real complaints but not really my thing.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from Asda in Eastbourne. Pours out in a deep dark brown colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of barley, leaves and malt. Taste of light malt, nuts, caramel, leaves and light raisins. Flat and boring finish. Refreshing but just nothing special.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared with McTapps and bought in ASDA, Eastbourne. Dark as the night with a guinnes-style foam. Aromas of malt, nuts and dark chocolate. Superbly quaffy and heavily drinkable. Thumbs up.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear but very, very dark beer with a beige head. Aroma is light malt and sour fruit. Flavour has a bit of malt, chocolate and caramel in there but the initial hit is mostly sweet fruit. It’s not the strongest-tasting beer but the balance is quite pleasant and I’d say it’s one of the nicer sub-3% beers I’ve had.

Bottle - Deep ruby red with a thin brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, vanilla and roasted malt. Taste of chocolate and vanilla followed by roasted malt, light smokiness, light bitterness and medium sweetness. Medium body, medium carbonation.
