Pisses me off that this gets in every Asda in the country. What’s that all about. It’s simple marketing and sales. I hate PR. Stick that in Gabby’s pipe. This is very average bitter with a little sweetness in taste and a little soap in smell.

olliejobbins (728) - Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours a slightly orange brown with minimal head. Nothing very interesting - slightly sweet bitter with nice hoppy after taste.

dogbomb (926) - ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2012
Bottle. Ruby rust ale with a thin white layer. Malt and toffee and caramel nose. Bitter bite in the mouth with some light fruit, caramel and toffee as it warms in the mouth. Solid and an easy drinker.

ianwelby (411) - SCOTLAND - DEC 23, 2012
Sweet with a bitter edge aroma, dark amber beer. Sweet flavour and slight bitter backtaste. Alright but not memorable.

foolberry (53) - New Malden, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2012
It’s not bad. Nice rounded taste in the mouth, full bodied, toffee malts. Bit sweet for me. Lonely old men drinking alone in the corner of the pub, roll ups, betting slip, pint of Old Bob. Nice bitter finish.

Ruby red. Thinnish head. Malty, caramel. Coffee hints. Some bittersweet depth. Nice finish. Will buy again.
