0.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Like others I bought a bottle from home bargains.
The beer is a muddy red, insipid and completely flat. I couldn’t drink it. Please avoid.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Most unappealing murky appearance when poured from the bottle. Flat and off putting. wondered whether to bother to drink it or pour away. First sip was not inspiring and still disconcerted by appearance. Fortunately was eating some spiceful food and found palatable quenching the heat. Pretty mediocre effort but when paying a pound for a bottle you take your chances.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A nice dark appearance goes well with a sweet but roast aroma, which sadly isn’t as strong as it could be. Same goes for the taste, not bad, sweet and a roast/earth aftertaste, but does taste a bit weak and watery, making it a decent drink but not one I’ll be rushing to buy more of.

Reasonable but very unexciting, middle of the road bitter. Suitable for a session.

Slightly sweet aroma. Clear but with a cloudy tinge, which is weird. Mildly creamy hoppy taste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle from Home Bargains. Pours a reddish brown with thin head which disappears quickly. Aroma and taste are malty sweet, bit fruity and very little hops until the absolute finish. Not great but very easy to drink and may be a nice balance to spicy food. Only £1 per bottle.
