I LOVED this beer. It reminds me of a porter because the malt is roasty tasting, it has a wonderful yellow head, fantastic to see. Incredible for the price like. Not a lot of hop taste but fruity and malty. I prefer a more hoppy beer but this hits the noodle and the pasta!

Didnt know what to expect with this one as its presumably named after the Duff brewey on the Simpsons. If Homer likes it then so should I. Lovely dark brown appearance with no carbonation. Slightly dry and almost stout like. An excellent surprise.

I bought this beer last night, as a one-off thing, and I can admit I will be buying it again. Although its a bitter, it tastes like a stout, in my opinion. It has a the burnt, liquorice after-taste to it that a stout does, and the dark colour too. Overall a really nice beer.

Smooth, roasty, fruity. It does exactly what it says on the tin. Very refreshing. Nuff said.
