Bottle from Tesco, Holyhead [170615]
Dark amber, clear, bubbly thin white head
Aroma of caramel notes, barley malt, soft tea notes, fruity sweet caramel
Taste of caramel notes, soft tea, quite malty beer, dab of molasses, brown sugar, hint of dark honey, bit unusual
Palate - Medium body, rather sweet, bit oily, some soft bitterness, rather malty. Finish of sweet caramel, hint of brown bread.
Overall - Quite liked the flavour at first, but after a while found it got over sweet malty

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Serving: 500 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. Murky red pour with almost no head. Caramel aroma with a hint of paper and florals. Bready flavor with a little caramel sweetness. Odd, earthy bitterness. Light to medium body. Not worth seeking out.

imdownthepub (11476) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2013
Bottled, 500ml from Stans Nisa, Llangollen. Brown amber with short lived white head. Highly carbonated pasteurised beer, there is a caramel sweetness to begin with, boiled bready notes with a cabbage type flavour. Some bitterness later on from an indistinct malt. Not great.

DruncanVeasey (7712) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2013
From Ricoh Tesco. Brilliant pale ruby with a dimpled off white collar. Aroma of mouldering fruit, sticky driptrays, stale old beer, cereals. Flavour Weetabix, some Shep-like jellied hop fruit; chestnut, digestives, wisp of smoke linger. Some decent dry roasted malt nuttiness in there. Not bad for a pasteurised (?) supermarket bitter.
