snowdog140 (57) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2015
A beautiful ruby colour with little head makes it a very attractive beer, and the slightly malty aroma goes well too. The taste is also malty/roasted but isn’t overpowering, making it easy to drink and a very pleasant drink overall.

Bottle from Tesco or B&M, can’t remember which but have seen it in both. Copper-red (but more of the former) with no head. Has a light sweetness throughout with a hint of toffee in its nose.
