2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle. Pours deep copper. Heavy malt aroma with not much else. Similarly heavy and toasty malt to taste with a good amount of smoke and coffee notes leading to a surprisingly sharp bitter finish. Better balanced with the bitterness than many dark malty ales.

Bottle from Rhythm & Booze, Huddersfield. Coppery amber with a very thin head. Has a decent toffee nose with some of this evident in its flavour. Has quite a lot of activity and fizz in the palate.

I also bought this beer from B&M Bargains for £1. I have to agree, it is probably the worst commercially brewed beer I have ever tasted. I occasionally brew my own from kits and it knocks spots off this. No head, very little taste, very little life, sounded and fizzed like a poor home brew when poured into the glass. Very poor.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
50cl bottle from B&M, Reading. Unlike most recent ratings, this bottle actually had some live in it and produced a reddish chestnut pour with a reasonable cream head, and some signs of carbonation. Apart from that itís a rather basic boring bitter, with a biscuity aroma; sweet caramel malt taste; the faintest hint of hops; and a biscuity finish. Drinkable, but not a beer to relish.

This was bought from b & m store for just over 1£ per bottle.Bought only 2 luckily as both smelt and tasted terrible,stale and vinegary with no head.According to the label best before is Feb 2016 so must be a problem with something getting in during the brewing process rather than age.

Bottled, 500ml from Home Bargains in Banbury. Reddish amber with no head, flat. This proved to be a real stinker of a beer, acidic, off. Drain pour.

Shocking beer on discount at b and m says it all really shouldnít have expected much but this is rank looks smells and tastes like pond water went down the sink after a mouth full notes of viniger and cat piss.

0.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle. Bought for a £1 at Home Bargins to break a twenty for parking. Nose is stale, berry, slight floral notes. Apperance, is murky and flat. Taste is almost nonexistent, itís predominantly water, slight berry, a little bitterness, no finish at all. Mouthfeel is like your uncles first attempt at home brew, thin and watery.
I was not expecting a lot given itís providence, but this is genuinely one of the worst beers I have had in years. I assume itís a bad batch which has been dumped in HB to serve the undiscriminating alcoholics of the north and the desperate. Terrible.
