The_Bish (1125) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2013
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.

dogbomb (966) - 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.
