DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2007 Red and lacy. Smells like a compost heap. A mouthful of sick and rusty copper pennies. Billious and intensely metallic. Nose turning nutty and sourly yeasty as it warms. Caramel, blood, cardboard, wheat, toasted nuts, cinnamon and cabbage. Complex but... muddled. Progressively less vile as it warms. Just about safe from the plughole, but the most offensively metallic beer I’ve ever tasted.

BREWMUSKCLES (2507) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 28, 2007
substantive, complex and a decent effort. tastes of malt that is sweet with a bite but not a good hop character or taste. toasty smokiness that soon becomes annoying.

beervis (243) - Taylor’s Country, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2007 Can. Dark amber with creamy off white head and good lacing, smooth medium bodied mouthfeel, sweet malty flavour balanced with a hoppy bite in the finish. Marred by being overly metallic. Slightly smoky/toasted. Not bad for what it is.
