Slightly opaque, reddy-brown beer with an almost dusty caramel aroma. Flavour is mostly malt with a toasty edge with a touch of sour fruit in there too. There’s almost a fume-y feel in the mouth as you might get with a spirit. Slightly watery finish. Not bad but far from the best beer you’ll find of it’s type.

jamestulloch (2209) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle from Aldi. Murky brown body with a thin off-white head. Light lacing. Mild aroma of earth and caramel. Flavour of toffee apple, raisin, caramel and lightly roasted malt. Medium body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Soft carbonation. A solid Brown Ale - with a higher ABV it could be truly excellent.

Graham77 (296) - Cumbria, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours a brown colour with a minimal off white head. Little by way of aroma. A very authentic beer with significant yeast sediment left in the bottle after pouring. Slightly disappointing in terms of flavour compared to the best 80/- beers on the market. Caramel and fruity notes. Good but not great.

omhper (21412) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2013
Bottled. Hazy mahogany colour, mid sized head. Malty aromas with strawberry as a backdrop. Mid sweet with medium body and well runded mouthfeel. Caramelly with fudge and esters. Low bitterness. Malt centric, and more harmonious than it way seem from my wording.

500ml bottle from Hippo Beers. Chestnut brown colour, not much head. Grain caramel malt aroma & flavour. Bitter aftertaste. A very average bitter.

Bright92 (9) - SCOTLAND - DEC 1, 2012 does not count
Pours a murky ruby to brown colour, with a quickly dissipating head. Smells of caramel, toffee, dark fruits, and some chocolate. The taste keeps the promise the nose made, with nice malty sweetness, some chocolate, vanilla, and caramel. Very smooth and creamy in the mouth. Overall, a nice beer, definitely worth giving a try.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 12, 2012
Bottle from Drinkmonger. Pours a dark brown colour with a fair white head. Aroma of chocolate, Weetabix malt and caramel. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. I prefer this to the Seventy Bob.
