3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reddish amber in colour with a bare skim of head and little evident carbonation. Ruby malt aromas with pecan nuttiness. It is restrained, maybe a hint of Fuggles but the star of a show of medium entertainment is the malt. It doesn’t smell bad and it doesn’t smell bad either. Plenty of carbonation in the mouth with caramel and tangy malt coming to the fore. A little bitterness, but not massive, ’nor massively memorable. A session pint which I would be happy to drink but not one I would go out of my way to have again if I’m honest.

500ml can from Bargain Booze, Skewen. BB July 2015. Copper coloured, sparkling, small scummy white head, sparse lacing. Aroma is light toffee. Body is medium, low-ish carbonation, very foamy. Taste is very soft, actually it’s like malty foam, a little wholewheat bread sweetness and no real bitterness. Very lightly flavoured. Drinkable and inoffensive. Maybe my low expectations helped this beer a bit, but it’s OK.

"again, bought on the rep of one of their beers, and this one didn’t match up well. kinda muddles scottish ale flavors. kinda. pretty thin and messy. not offensive, even though the metallic bitterness was present, but i’ll pass on all but the scotch ale in the future."

Réz színe telt, lágyan pörkölt malátás alapokat rejt magában egy halvány juharszirupos, árnyalatnyit karamellás színezettel. Belekóstolva már egy közepes testű, igen alacsony szénsavtartalmú ital körvonalai bontakoznak ki, mely egy kissé nehézkes, pirított és savanykás, enyhén vasízű és vizes karakterrel bír, ehhez csatlakozik aztán egy komlós, kissé lagerszerű aroma. Önmagában véve nem egy kellemetlen jelenség, kissé testetlen volta, a telt ízek hiánya azonban a műfaj átlagosabb darabjai közé sorolják.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Tesco. Poured a bright ruby colour, clear, but with some visible, soda-like carbonation and a big, off white head. Insipid aroma, lots of mineral and cream soda. Flavours are vapid and seem pretty fake; malty and boiled sweets. Finish was highly unpleasant mix of copper, cooked fruit and flat malt. I wonder if this was ever good...

About a 1/3 of a 50 cl can, rest was drain poured. Bronze pour with some head. Light nose and taste, some grain and malt sweetness. Has some weird metallic notes.
