Beautiful deep reddy-brown colour, with a nice off-white head - which dissapates fairly quickly. Faint malty aroma, followed by nice malty, caramel and toffee flavours. Very mild fizz on the tongue.

dantheman278 (1359) - SCOTLAND - OCT 18, 2012
Bottle at home. Murky dark brown, no real head. Light coffee, biscuit, slight caramel nose, little metallic lager malts. Soft nutty brown ale characteristics, slight chocolate, slight coffee, grassy metallic hops in the linger. Dull, but not horrendous.

[500ml bottle, Cornelius Beer & Wine] Poured out at Cornelius by Bob - he admitted he’s not particularly happy with how this one came out. Decent looking brown bitter, thin head. Biscuity malt aroma - thin on the palate, touch of sweetness, before a short biscuit finish reminiscent of Timmy Taylor’s Landlord. A decent beer, without doubt, but as Bob said, has very little body and no real elements of a 70/-. First batch should be re-rated later, I think [09042012]
