AtronSeige (1199) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JUL 7, 2014
Aroma: Fault: Highly Oxidized, paper., Malt: dark fruit, bready. Hops: musty. Appearance: Dark copper, clear body. Medium, off-white head. Good retention, dense. Flavour: Medium-high bitterness, medium-light sweetness. Caramel, biscuit, lingering bitterness, light paper, slight astringency, Floral hops, dry finish Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-light carbonation. Creamy. Overall: The oxidation is overpowering on aroma, but it does dissipate, allowing other aromas to come through. Although the oxidation can be tasted, it is not as aggressive. 500 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre! 8B. Special/Best/Premium Bitter

500ml bottle from Lidl. Pours clear mahogany with a thin, but long-lasting white head. Aromas of grain, malt, brown malt specifically, and light british herbal hops. Taste has some bitterness to back up the sweetened coffee. Palate a bit thin. OK.

scotty (1133) - SCOTLAND - MAR 24, 2013
Bottle, Lidl. Dark amber with a rather big bubbled white head, it lasts well tho! Aroma and palate are both malty, another rater mentioned coffee, which I noticed as well. A pleasant bitter, would try again.

berkshirejohn (5884) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2013
50cl bottle from Lidl. Copper coloured with a thin, fading, white head; aroma of roasted grains; in the mouth the grains are toasty with lots of sweet caramel - not sure if Iíd spot the oats if I hadnít read the description, but once you know they are there they stand out; the finish is rather lacking, but overall this isnít a bad "heavy" style bitter.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2012
Bottled 06/10/12. A dark brown to chesynut coloured beer with a whitish head. A very husky oatsy beer. Highly malty and grainy. Coffee flavours. I like the malts in here. I can see this being a marmite beer, but a grainy malty beer serves me well from time to time.
