Thin coarseish beige head. Hazy amber body. Very faint floral caramel aroma. Dry-sweet caramelly straw taste with floral notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish floral wooden caramel aftertaste with rye crisp bread and straw notes. Quite nice, but a bit one-dimensional. (0.25l cask at Lamb & Flag, Covent Garden, London.)

Pale, malty ale. Dark Star impress me with there use of Hops in all there beers. I have tried many Dark Star beers and they continue to impress me all the time.
