worldbeertaste (1818) - West Midlands, - OCT 25, 2012
Clear dark amber with a nice fizzy, lacy, disappearing beige head. Smells of sweet caramel malt, light roast, and dry bread. Medium oily body. Sweet taste of malt, nut and caramel with notes of straw and a bitter acidic hop finish. Very average bitter with general good qualities but nothing much to stand out.

Drank a ton of this stuff back when I was in university. Reddish brown pour, thin head. Caramel, faint dark fruit in the aroma, malty. Toffee up front, malty, a bit bready, a little bit smoky. Watery body, sweet finish. Little incentive to have it again.
