500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s, Prestwick - clear brown amber, bubbly white head, sweet caramel malt aroma, very highly carbonated, but once degassed, this is a very pleasant drink, caramel malt flavour, sweet, very easy to drink

Bottle.Amazingly this is the first time I have ever seen this beer in a bottle.
Bought from my local super market. Brownish with a small head.Some maltiness and low in carbonation.Seems like this has been around for years but it tasted remarkably up to date. An interesting blast from the past.

On keg at the Ardview Inn. Pours a dark golden brown colour with a thin white head. Aroma of Weetabix malt, grassy hops and caramel. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and CO2 prickle and a foamy mouth-feel. Lingering bready yeast. Mildly bitter and a little dry.

Farblich ist es ein dunkles Exportbier mit typisch englischer Schaumkrone. Aroma schön herb-hopfig. Im Nachgeschmack ein ganz klein bisschen sauer. Fazit: Gutes mittelmaß.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A very mild smelling one. Very clean & I initially struggled to detect much in the way of an aroma although once it was left to open up slightly there was a faint metallic smell, some grain and a tiny amount of caramel with some sweetness.
Caramel red copper a foamy white head that has outstanding retention & remains for upwards of five minutes, is perfectly straight and is about two-fingers width tall.
Faint caramel with the metallic taste that I detected in the smell. There is a mildy bitter finish but to be honest there isn’t that much else to mention.
Fairly smooth beer on the palate with a medium body and a moderately bitter finish.
Not quite as bad as I had been expecting, but by no means a good beer either. This one should have disappeared along with the eighties in my opinion. Very few redeeming qualities and not one I would have again.
