Fin (10821) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2006
Bottled (Can’t remember where i picked it up from) Ruby in colour as it says with nice fruity malty flavours enveloping your tastebuds, some roasted notes and a nice finish. Very good.

Aroma starts lightly sweet roasted vanilla, slightly treackle also. Taste is chocolate roasted malt, treackle again, a bit sweetish but balanced.

Bottle. (Brief tasting notes and rating from old records) - Smooth, dark, roasted (burnt) malt and hop bitterness with dry roasted finish. (Backlog)

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2006
Slightly sour malt aroma with some honey notes. Pours ruby with a thick beige head. Flavour is a little thin and a little cloying, but it’s well balanced and pleasantly malty. Ok, but I wouldn’t go out of my way.

a Brown colored ale,Heavy malt nose, nice rounded fruit malt that just a tad fizzy.

2.8
Ungstrup (38243) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2003
A dark nutbrown beer with no head. the aroma is sweet and acidic. The flavor is smoked, sweet, watery with a bitterness lingering only on the front of the tongue - but having a fine aftertaste.

2.8
harrisoni (19165) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2006
500ml bottle from Tesco. Reddish/brown colour with beige head. Dry malt aroma. Juicy malt in mouth with some red burnt fruit. Shame its got a bit of deadness due to pasteurisation. But malt is good. Tasted to me a bit like Batemans XXXB.

2.7
Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2006
Bottle (from Tesco). It appears from the bottle that Daleside have a trademark on ’duff beer’ - fear of being sued by the Simpsons? Deep brown with light roast and fruit flavours. Slightly thin and sweet. Not great but worked well as an impromptu base for the onion gravy I was cooking at the time.
