Bottle. Amber colour. Malty (buttery, toffee). Fruity (dark fruit, raisins). Spicy (floral & peppery hops). Sweet, malty, fruity, spicy. Drying fruity finish. Rather nasty, sickly taste. Didn’t like it. Not Good! (2008)

Bottle. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Orange colour. Light malty and hoppy aroma. Very week light bitter flavor. Week raisin notes. Short light bitter finish. Watery palate. Not worth the money.

HogcliffeLenny (162) - Christchurch, Dorset, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2008
Bottle 500ml from Morrisons in Barry. Amber pour with no head. Aroma of stewed vine fruits. Unsurprisingly, vine fruits come through in the flavour. As Fin points out, there is an artificial sweetness to it. The aftertaste is just like that of a 1970s 1 cal drink. Nothing particularly warms me towards this one

PMgep (280) - Lund, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2016
Old rating, bottle. This is just to sweet with to much of the raisins in it.

1.8
scotty (1208) - SCOTLAND - AUG 23, 2008
Bottle from Morrisons. Slightly hazy head white and fading fast. Nose fruity and spicy, palate is smooth and overwhelmingly bland, only flavour is a hint of bitter fruit on the finish. A poor Cains brew, nice idea but needs some work methinks.
