Backlog rating. Bottle at Caspar tasting at Chriso’s, London. It pours a murky amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet with notes of caramel, bread and pine cones. Taste is sweet and malty, with notes of toffee, plums, grains and citrus peel. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, tasty

triskaideka (176) - Killarney, IRELAND - DEC 14, 2014
500 ml bottle - pours dark red w/ white head. More hop profile than reds usually have - has the normal malty profile of a red ales - slightly more complex than usual for this style. Worth trying

Again another good beer in this range. Don’t let the Tesco/Martson’s tag put you off. As said before £1.25 for 500ml is very good

Upon pouring and taking a smell I was quite excited about this, resiny, berries, tropical fruit, malt carmel all coming through. Taste however isn’t anywhere near as interesting, fairly standard mildly sweet and mild to medium bitter. A little one dimenional and rather thin and watery. Not bad at all, especially for the £1.25 that I paid for it. Overall, not bad.

zacgillbanks (2620) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, Gateshead. This copper-red coloured beer has a tropical and red fruity flavour, burnt toffee notes followed by a roasted and smooth peppery hop finish.

BlackHaddock (4209) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2014
500ml bottle: BBD 24 Feb 15. Opened while working in a hot kitchen (at home) on 13 Oct 14. Looked good, pours a deep amber with a reddish hue, on top an off-white crown. Aroma of hops and dark berries with just a hint of malty molasses.. Taste of semi-bittering hops, biscuity malts and fruitiness. OK and an ideal beer to cook with: not going to trouble your senses but worth having a bottle to yourself.

mike_77 (3482) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2014
Red-brown colour. Aroma has plenty of malt and some sweet red fruits. Flavour is a bit bland but has some muted caramelly malts and sweeter fruity elements from the hops.

gegwilson (1517) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. Amber with a thin cream head. Plenty of fruity hop flavour to this with pineapple and a bit of caramel in the background. A little spiciness too. A little thin in body, but this is a pretty good beer. Surprisingly so given it’s from the Marsten’s stable. Very drinkable.
