Pours a chestnut brown and bright as bright. Shortlived foam of beige atop. Tonic, nutty, buttery diacetyl nose edged with hints of roasted pecans and marzipan. Light bodied, buttery and nutty.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. A very dark brown-copper coloured beer with a sweet rich red fruit and malty flavour, light roasted notes and more berries on the finish. Gains an extra point for being below 4% ABV.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Medium beige head. Clear deep dark red body with carbonation.
Faint fruity caramelly aroma with roasty notes. Sweetish papery
roasty caramel taste with fruity wild berry notes. Mid-bodied.
Strange mouthfeel. Dryish papery medicinal aftertaste with
buttery roasty notes. Lingering, strange medicinal taste and
mouthfeel. Tried drinking on to see if it would grow on me, but
it did not. Eventually poured it out. (0.5l bottle, from Meny

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Kobberbrun med beige kortvarigt skum. Duft af citrus og især let/slank karamel. Bitterhed og brændt karamel i smagen, der er i den slanke ende. Eftersmagen er stort set kun bitterhed.
