3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
1 pint can. Pours a clear red/dark brown hue with a fluffy off white head. I get a sweet buckwheat aroma but not alot of bacon. Big buckwheat flavour in this beer and as it warms in the mouth i get that meaty (bacon) like flavour on the back of the tongue. Nice beer but not overly complex.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours two and half fingers of tan head on a brown body.
The aroma is mild: toasted malt and lemon.
The taste is fairly lemon hoppy, sharp bitter, slightly metallic and just a little nutty.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.
An okay brown ale.

Very slight bacon aspect that you probably wouldn’t recognize as such unless it said so on the can. that said, this was a pleasant brown ale, robust in flavor and smooth. Enjoyed, just not as bacon-y as i hoped :)"

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg in the North Bar, Leeds. Deep brown with a cream head. Disappointingly there’s very little in the way of bacon notes. Tasty non the less. Toasty with caramel and coffee and an ashy finish.

Keg at The Hanging Bat. Pours clear dark brown with a thin off-white head. Aromas are light smoke and light brown malt. Taste brings more sweetness than smoke. Medium to light body, clean finish, little thin in the mouthfeel. OK.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz can pour. The curiosity got to me on this one. Pours dark cola like with fizzy tan head. A decent nutty flavor with a little smoke to it. Not really getting any bacon out of this, but it tastes good as it is. Flavorful. Not bad.

From the bottle this poured a medium brown colored body with a tall (too tall) rocky tan head. The aroma had a faint generic maltiness with something "off" that may or may not have been bacon. I was expecting more from the flavor. This was pretty much like a standard brewpub brown ale from years back that has a charred bitterness that (again) may or may not have been bacon. One’s enough for me.
