(Bottle) Dark amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty nose with notes of caramel, dark fruit and spicy hops. Malty taste with caramel, toast, dark fruit and spicy hops in a rather dry, metallic finish. Rather thin body. Decent low abv version of the beer.

Nice amber/caramel color beer. The one i had was bitter with a very clean buit not much flavor. Good any time of year, the name is great, although the clear bottle might have changed the flavor, gonna have to try tap sometime. Brought from the UK by my friend.

PaulsPissed (37) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 26, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2009 Nice fruity aroma, not much wrong with its dark amber colour, strong fruity taste, a bit nutty and spicy, a little bit watery but still leaves a distinct taste.

angrybeerman (259) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 24, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2009 Nice red colour with a decent head. Nice fruity aroma. Like its cousin Spitfire it also tasted quite fruity. However it was a god bit drier than Spitfire which lost it some marks and not as much of a finish either.

BroSpud (2038) - , Massachusetts, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Bottle (Previous tasting from memory). Didn’t like this one. Not sure if it was damaged from the clear bottle or what but it just wasn’t very good. Will not be trying it again.

davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - FEB 15, 2009
Appearance: copper color. Little head. aroma: some nutty, with light smells of caramel and dry-herbs. Flavor: some insipid, presence of caramel malts and nutty in the start. Maybe other reminiscences like red tea and apple skin. Light dry final. Palate: light body, watery texture and medium carbonation. Remark: poor beer.

Bottle, 3.5%. Nutty aroma, grainy vinousness. Clear amber colour. Small tan head. The flavour is nutty with grassy and spicy aroma hops. A bit watery, as expected.
