Jonb5 (348) - Greater London, - FEB 11, 2013
330ml bottle, poured into Leffe chalice. Dark bronze colour, one finger head which didn’t hang around very long, kept some lacing. Quite thick looking but not hazy. Initially there was no detectable aroma, some malt and vanilla came through towards the end. Tasted charcol and malt, was overly bitter in an unbalanced way that also killed all other flavours. Finish was bitter and slightly bready. Had a coarse edge, was well carbonated and the body was quite thick for the fairly low strength. Overall not one of the better beers out there, was just a bit unbalanced even though it mellowed slightly.

Bottle from Glug Newcastle. Pours deep brown but minimal head and flat appearance. Metallic aftertaste. Ok but not one I'd fancy regularly

ravidesai (947) - Bombay, INDIA - JUL 3, 2014
An average alt. foamy head over a dark rust colored body Bready , nose. Taste was mild, not the assertive smoky, malty, yet bitter flavors I associate with my favorite alts

prawlie (1141) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2014
Dark red-brown with a foamy head. Dry, bitter, slightly acidic. Indistinct malt and hop aroma. This is a fair alt, but not up to the same standards of some of its local cousins.

Scopey (6711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Keg at Three Tuns, Brizzle. It pours deep amber-brown with a small beige head. The nose is earthy, brown bread, fruit cake, raisin cocoa and caramel. The taste is bitter, earthy, brown bread, caramel, toasty, dried fruits, with a dry, earthy finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Drinkable and easy going. Decent enough, but not much depth.

Looks just like a mass produced bitter, and tastes like one too. Used to drink Alt beers when visiting family in Germany , my memory thinks they were better than this example.
