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.

A nice simple beer that is easy enough to drink but does not stand out as anything special.

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

It is quite dark, clear, with a thin patchy white head. Nice malty nose, some toffee and spice, not overly hoppy! Medium bodied with a clean malty palate, with a gentle hoppy finish. Good generic beer, only a pound....at the moment!

Bottle at home in London with friends. Pours clear, light brown with a fine, creamy head. Mild caramel nose, light toast. Light to medium sweet flavor with basic caramel, toasty bread, faint berries. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly dry to finish with toasty, almost doughy malts, faint toasty leaf bitterness, mellow caramel. Very basic stuff. Easygoing.
