Overly sweet, especially for what's described on the label as "light...soft...crisp." The invert sugar adjunct is very noticeable. There's a little spiciness to help combat the treacle sweetness but no head to suggest the carbonic acid bite that would provide greater balance. I can't imagine having more than one of these. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from M&S Stratford and drunk at home. Clear copper amber colour with lasting ivory head. Malty pasteurised aroma. Some fruity malt flavour later on . Not much hop. Just the pasteurisation doesn’t help. Gets better later but still not great. Don’t pasteurise beer please.

Sharezie from Rory Duncan watching rugby World Cup. Malty ale with brown ale overtones. Hopping to balance but overall sweet.

Appearance is copper, hardly any head. Aroma- toffee and caramel, raisin hints, malty, brown sugar. Taste- brown bread, lots of caramel and treacle, brown sugar, yeast, malty finish. Very nice.

prawlie (1380) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2015
Bottle from Booths. Amber with a rapidly diminishing head. Light malt aroma with a hint of citrus and plums - though this deScription is slightly biased after reading the tasting notes 1001 Beer to Drink before you Die! Good malty body, bitter yet sweet. Nice fruity notes. A decent ale.

500ml bottle, 2007 aged, @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, May 15, courtesy of Mike. Cobweb nose, murky dusty taste. Not a fair tasting admittedly. Definitely not aged well.

500ml bottle - smooth taste if somewhat lacking in a palate and real taste. Quite disappointing.
