This looked a little too dark and had the slight smell of caramel apples and sulfur. It felt oily going down and tasted like no other Bitter I’ve encountered. The malt and hop profile was overpowered by the sickening flavor of dark fruits and a sourness akin to prune flavored Now and Later candy. Pretty bottle. Pretty awful.

Served in a tulip from a 500ml bottle. Pours clear light bronze amber colour with a thin off-white lasting head. Aroma is caramel, grass, red fruit, hint of molasses. Taste is caramel, slightly zesty, hint of molasses, subtle bitter pleasant aftertaste. Interesting, enjoyable and... just lovely!

Veel minder dan de vorige van dezelfde brouwer. Niet heel verkeerd, maar niks speciaals. Beetje suf.

stravale (2834) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUN 23, 2015
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.

Amber beer with a slight white head. Floral aroma. Quite sweet with floral citrus hop flavours. A bit of lemon meringue about it. Nice and refreshing.

imdownthepub (13370) - 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.
