Mieux que la guinness... Mais il y avait de la marge. Très aqueuse, aucune longueur. Très douce, on perçoit un côté café lacté. Puis aucune longueur, tout s’évapore.

500ml can from Tesco. Pours opaque brown with a one inch beige-marshmallow looking head. Aromas of... Not very much! Faint coffee maybe. Taste has a bit more going on, all in the coffee end of things. Then it all goes a bit metallic and watery. Thin finish.

Pint in the Olympia. Earthy, wood, some light coffee notes. Flavour follows nose. Fairly good although in class pint glass. Beats the piss brigade.
