It wasn’t that bad but it definitly wasn’t good. I will not be buying this again.

Floral hop aroma. Dark amber cloudy colour with low to medium carbonation. Very English, malt tones with light hopping felt throughout. Medium to heavy body with low to medium carbonation.

hawthorne00 (2448) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle. Clear amber with a coat of off-white head. Aroma of boiled sweets, pears, light spices. Rather lifeless. Bittersweet with toffee, some vague fruit, a touch of blood. Dully bitter and a little spicy at the end. Just about OK.

magpieken (54) - - APR 29, 2014
Bronze colour. Lightly carbonated, reasonable head leaving minimal lace. Subtle maltiness to start with some bitterness to finish. Nothing too lavish. Easy drinking, tradesman-like drop.

Bif (1456) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Pours a dark copper color with a small head that dades to bits of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and grain. Taste of roasted malt,and some grain. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Moderate body. smooth with a light creamy texture. Not a bad beer, just nothing to get excited about.

MarkMaclean (48) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2012
Bottled. Deep brown, no head, malty taste, a bit like a like stout. Not sure this is the right beer though... App couldn't find the bar code. This one brewed by The Old Fart Brewing Company, Yorkshire, England. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not bad at all. Dark colour, not much head, fruity and slightly burned taste. Bought a couple of bottles for my father-in-law.

Mjollnir (391) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 6, 2011
500mL bottle. Pours clear golden brown with a small head that settles. Light floral hops on the nose with a little malt and toast. The flavour’s malty but not overly sweet with a little acidity and a bit of a burnt flavour. Light-medium bodied, soft carbonation but it still manages to develop a decent creamy texture on the palate, drying in the finish.

hallzee (46) - Gold Coast, AUSTRALIA - JAN 13, 2011
500ml bottle pored into a mug(due to all glasses being smashed from heavy sessionry) not too strong on the nose but in the mouth full flavours of toffee and caramel are present. The low carbonation makes it quite sessionable and one bottle leaves me wanting more.
