Faint plum-molasses nose. Some apple notes with hints of pineapple and apricot as it warms up and breathes. Medium-light body, but with no wateriness. Flavor sweet with an overlay of bitterness. Fantastic mild with excellent flavor for a 3.5% beer.

zacgillbanks (5506) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2017
Can from B&M, Team Valley, Gateshead. Dark amber-copper coloured with a thick white head. It has a malty and slight burnt toffee flavour with slight almond notes on the creamy finish. Not bad for the low ABV.

phaleslu (10670) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 23, 2016
Can shared by Theydon Bois at the RBWG Fart Dungeon - thanks again, Colin! Pours a clear dark orange tea color with no head. Kind of sugary and earthy, with leaves and wet toast. But mostly just dull and watered down. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, toasty, sugary, watery mouthfeel. Snooze.

DSG (15237) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 12, 2016
[1/29/16] Can sample at a hotel room bottle share during RBWG 2016 in Santa Rosa. Thanks everyone who shared bottles! Amber. Aroma of DMS, malt, caramel. Sweet flavor with caramel, DMS, malt, drier finish. Light-bodied.

JulienHuxley (5950) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2016
Can at fart dungeon tasting. Clear copper pour with thin white head. Aroma is vegetal, metallic, caramel, light toast. Taste is very metallic, light cooked veggie. Palate is light bodied, watery.

djd07 (15544) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Can. Pours copper with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is fruity malt and toast. Medium mouth, bready malt, bitter, decent.

Ferris (16519) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2016
Can - Toasty malts and caramel. Clear copper with a decent beige head. Toffee, light grains and a light finish. Simple and decent.

Homer321 (5191) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Can from theydon at the fart dungeon. Nose is lightly chocolate. Taste is in impressively bland and lacks in body. Kinda boring
