Bottle. At first this seems like a fairly standard bitter but there is an unusual smoky element that is actually fairly pleseant.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Aldi 020112
Amber, clear, frothy white head, some lacing
Aroma - Soft sweet golden caramel malts, soft cereals
Taste - Soft caramel malts, hint of toasted malts, touch of unusual smokiness - bit farmyardy, vague hint of citrus, some bitter hop in background, odd flavour but it’s drinkable
Palate - soft carb, medium body, quite oily. Sweetish malts and light bitter hop palate. Finish - fairly dry. bitter lingering dryness, palate not that clean.
Overall - Very average beer, some unusual smokiness in the sweetish malts that makes it stand out a bit though, hop presence is just some soft bitterness. Reasonable.
