Darkish amber colour, clear with half inch head - initial strong carbonation. Soft feel with nice after taste. Carbonation dissipates leaving very drinkable bitter.

barnyard, brown, clear, white foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, oily feel, soft carbonation, bitter, I dont quite know how to describe this one. Interesting. Pours to a brownish-amber with a decent aroma. Initial taste is good with a woody, almost pine-like taste on the finish. the further down it the worse it got strange

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
500ml bottle purchased at the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Golden tea in colour with a thin dissipating white head, very light patchy lacing. Aroma is of grains and cereal, herbal hops, some caramel sweetness. Flavour is a bit watery, some light bitterness, caramel malt sweetness, herbal. Lightly bitter but thin mouthfeel, light body, medium carbonation. Finishes fairly quick, grainy, sweet. A little thin for my tastes, probably better on cask then from the bottle.

eastkenttom (126) - herne bay, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2014
A perfect beer to sup with a bag of pork scratchings. Uncomplicated but pleasant enough. Drank it from a bottle - just the right carbonation level. Nice chestnut colour.
