Big bottle cheers to Paul. Pours clear chestnut brown with a small whisper of a beige head which quickly disappears. Very nutty and honey forward on the nose. Taste shows a few more dark fruits, sweet bread and toffee. Semi sweet but dry on the finish. Crisp stuff. Plain and boring stuff but nothing at all wrong with it madmitch76 (25368) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2014

Tasting at our ever gracious host - Bruces pad. Lightly hazy amber beer, residual pale cream coloured head. Smooth palate, decent fine carbonation. Medium malt, touch of dried fruits. Bare whisper of bitterness. Finishes smooth and semi dry. About as standard as a beer can get and still maintain a modicum of decency.
