Not a massive fan of this. Quite thin and bitter, some roasted malty notes but nothing to write home about. Would be OK for a session. jjsint (4855) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2016
Bottle from Cambridge Wine Merchants, Cherry Hinton Road. Dark brown, clear. Not a lot of head but some visible carbonation on the top. Smell of malt, some woodland berry, earthy hop. Sweet chocolatey taste with a slight fruity bitterness at the end. Slight body. A pretty good mild.

Bottle. Dark brown with a very thin fading light brown head. Nose is licorice and then light hoppy grass notes. Bit of licorice in the mouth, but ultimately quite thin. Finishes with a metallic zing, but nothing lasting and memorable. peponi (2382) - Strzelce Wielkie, POLAND - SEP 20, 2014
