500ml bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber hue with an off white lasting head. Medium carbonation. Nose is bread, burnt toffee, red fruit, liquorice and citrus. Oily mouth feel, taste is nice at first some bready caramel toffee and then a really sour vinegar like taste comes in. Reminds me of my apple cider vinegar health drink !! Hmmm bit weird this one, but strangely drinkable at the same time. Not one i’ll be buying again though.

Smell is malty, caramel, a bit of liquorice. The taste is quite. Colour is Amber orangeish. Taste is a bit sweeter, malty, not much of a body to it. Okay.

Flat and lifeless with a thin taste. If it was homebrew I'd probably be quite pleased with it but from a brewery it's not good enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500 ml bottle at Ye Olde Frigate Bar, Aberdeen. ABV 3.9%. Served at room temperature. Reddish brown colour, large off-white to beige head. Malty and slightly vinegary aroma and flavour, sourish. Not great.

Red hue with foamy head that dissipates but laces. Caramel and red fruit on nose,bit thin but to be expected at strength .very easily sunk and could easily session on it. Very like an English bitter for me . Enjoyed it.

3/20 huge caramel nose but beer is flat, lacks flavour, lifeless, not a nice taste. Poor even considering the low % ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500ml bottle. Reddish brown with a thin off white head. Sweet and slightly sour aroma. Taste is initially sweet, turning sours and with an odd, dry finish (cinnamon?)
