2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bought a bottle of this from the Shepherd Neame Brewery Store.
Aroma-Not to sure about, there was an aroma of rotten veg. Also some sweetness.
Appearance- very dark brown with a light head
Taste-Burnt oats, or burnt toast, doesn’t last long. Some sweetness, its not unpleasant.
Overall- Its ok not my favourite beer, I don’t think I would buy this again there are better beers from Shepherd Neame.

Bottle from Lidl Blackwater. Pours a dark brown colour with a thin white head. The aroma is full of dark malts, the taste is very malty with a sweet bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Quite a dark ale, quite thin consistency but with a thick, almost creamy head. Pleasant aroma of porridge oats and roasted barley. Tastes of roasted barley, but quite well balanced. Texture smooth, but somewhat watery. Overall pleasant, but not mind-blowing.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle from Lidl. Dark brow beer with thin near white bottle. Some caramel, some malts, some diacetyl. In the mouth is a rather boring darkish malt beer with a pasteurised malt body. Bitter on finish, without much actual hop flavour. Just too buttery and a bit boring to be honest. Oh dear. Ugh.
