500ml bottle. Pours dark gold with a medium head. Aroma is toast, with a little apple. Taste has a lot of bread with toast on the finish. It’s ok. I like bread, wholemeal with seeds over white, for the record.

Bottle shared wity McTapps. Interesting start between huge malt and some sweetish hoppy dominance. Comes huge for a 50 cent beer. Quite delicious with a bitter end.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. For once, the Bish appears to be talking some sense. This is all about bread; wholemeal sweet bread. Rather a flat, lifeless, minerally, boring finish, with some cornflakes box. Didn’t really deliver the after-work, Lager recuperation I was looking for. On the plus side, I do love these unpretentious labels, which are utterly indifferent to zeitgeist, coolness or marketing. This label is so dull, that it actually comes back round to brilliant again.

How is this even interesting? The writing or the beer? Don’t bother. 94? Stuff and nonsense. Bread. I’m getting bread. I don’t really want bread. And then there’s some chemicals. Chemicals. I don’t really want chemicals. oh, hold on...
