Pours a dark Amber with a non existent off white head which disappears very quickly. Aromas of honey, malts, oak, charcoal. Metallic tasting malt with an even more metallic finish. Poor.

Bottle, Victa Belvedere, shared with heavy. Poured a clear dark amber body wtih a white head. Mild sweetish doughy aroma, meh. Soft, flat taste, doughy maltiness, herbal, perfumey hoppiness. OK, has enough taste for 3.4%, but I see no reason to purchase a 3.4% beer for this price ever again.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled 500ml. -from Vrutak Zagreb. Darker golden coloured, small white to off-white head, whiff of caramel in the nose. Sweet malty, caramel, slightly herbal and nutty with rather bitter finish. Watery palate; not offensive, pleasant in a way but just watery.

From Costco. At lunch, with fried potatoes + fried eggs + croquettes. In Ikea’s pint glass. Full of english dry bittering hops and a smooth and creaming feeling. It’s incredible they packaged all this in such a tiny ABV!

29/11/16 bottle at home. Lovely old school downland bitter. Belies it's 3.4%. Bitter, chalky, gentle malts, takes well to chilling. This is close to that elusive beer

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from a bottle from Tesco.Good fruity, malty aroma. Colour is a rich copper with a quickly-fading white head. Good mouthfeel and a great taste of malts (not too sweet) and a a fruity, earthy hop taste. Good bitterness, producing autumn flavours in a glass. A really delicious classic bitter. Highly recommended.
