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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle, BB Dec 2015, from LIDL and consumed at a work do at a BYOB. Dark reddy brown, slight haze, big off-white head. Body is medium, low-ish carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is malt-forward, slight ash, slightly sweet, soft bitterness. Predictably average. My colleagues hated it, but I thought it was at least passable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 I’d spot the oats if I hadn’t read the description, but once you know they are there they stand out; the finish is rather lacking, but overall this isn’t a bad "heavy" style bitter.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml clear glass bottle, filtered, from Lidl. Cheap as chips. This is a malty beer with some chocolate notes and a fair degree of mustiness rather than bitterness. Tastes old, but not bad. There’s something, for me, quite attractive about a low abv malt accented beer. Easy drinking and quite flavoursome with enough character to make it interesting. There’s not many beers like this, and it could be an opinion divider. I like it.
