Not bad at all. Ł1.30ish, bargain. From Tesco don’t you know. Simple. Darkish. Simply Darkish would be better.

Bottled, 500ml from Tesco, Uttoxeter. Darkish red brown with cream head, carbonated. Slightly sweet, malty but reasonably hoppy and fruity beer, some orange notes, reasonable depth. Ok.

SarkyNorthener (1414) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2013
Bottle. Clear reddish brown colour, small head. Aroma of dark fruits and malts. Taste is raisins, sweet malts and a touch of fruit chocolate bar. Slightly carbonated and light bodied. An OK beer, not bad for the price.

Bottled 23/02/13. A dark dark brown coloured beer with an off-white pool of head. A sweet malty beer both in the nose and the mouth. Dartk brown fruits. A bit of smokiness. Better than expected.

500ml bottle from.... erm... Tesco - Deep reddy brown body, nice and clear, lasting frothy white head. A decent caramel nose, a bit of blackcurrant, slight chocolate. but nothing that screams out. The taste is light, a smooth palate doesn’t really bring out any depth of flavour. It is quaffable in a session beer kind of way, but nothing out of the ordinary, but it probably is the best Tesco actually does. Maybe the best I’ve had outta Marston’s too, but can’t be sure.

ToxicDeath (1) - Grangemouth, SCOTLAND - JAN 20, 2013 does not count
A nice simple beer that is easy enough to drink but does not stand out as anything special.

wimpyjoe (2955) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2013
Has a clear light brown appearance with a head. There’s lots of winter fruit available in both its aroma and flavour. Has a light but smooth texture.

tommann (2487) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a large, frothy head. Aroma is buttery with a little raisin malt underneath. Taste has bready malt to start and a gassy, raisin malt finish.

Grzesiek79 (2964) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 7, 2013
Średnie piwo, a raczej przeciętne. Proste piwo, ale niezbyt ciemne, owszem trochę jest ale nazwa wygórowana. To tylko bursztyn lub wiedeński lager. Piana średnia. Aromat goryczkowy, ale słaby w smaku dominuje gorycz ale także niezbyt są to intensywne doznania
