2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Roasted nose that promises more than it delivers. The flavor is rather bland and beer has thin body

Bland brew, not very roasty as advertised, definitely could use some spicing up. Just boring and uneventful. I thought the palate was okay but other than that I have nothing good to say about this beer. Tastes manufactured without much thought or passion, kind of like the rest of this pub...

Tastes a bit like water and vinegar. As far as I know beer shouldn’t taste like that! Definitely doesn’t meet the claimed description of "sweet and carmely with a deep dark roasty toasty undertow"
