Dark amber with an off white head. Sweet slightly citric aroma. Earthy malt taste, not very appealing. Slight bitterness. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2008
Bottled. An amber coloured beer with some small off-white bubbles for a head. The aroma is fruity and a little nutty, maybe even a hint of licquorice? Very dry taste, again hints of nuts. Earthy hops. Doesn’t taste pasteurized to death, but still only average. gowdy (1116) - Erskine, SCOTLAND - JAN 2, 2008

Bottle from Morrissons, Banbury 30-12-07 had this on the 31st Poured dark brown, quite thin and watery, caramel some malt and almost no bitterness, touch sweet, quite drab downender (8891) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2007
Bottle form Morrisons. Dark brown with ruby highlights. Almost no aroma, a hint of malt and no more. Flavour had red fruit, some caramel and a slightly sweet finish. Bottling appears to have done this beer few favours.

Pretty average this - more malt than hops in taste, which isn’t a good thing and a little sweet for my liking. Quite biscuity - overall: OK. imdownthepub (15332) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2007
Bottled, 500ml, pasteurised. From Morrisons, Banbury. Brown with red hints, white head. Malty, fruity beer, blackberry and prune type, fleshy flavours with a rather thin maltiness, some ovaltine sweetness. Shortish finish. Decent enough beer.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2009 Raspberry jelly red with a beige slick. Aroma of toffee and marzipan, faint background jellied fruit with a rub of hopcone. Lingering biscuit, caramel, malted milk, marzipan, fizz and tedium. No hops, trace of dark fruit. Soporific, half-tasty bitter flash boiled and filtered to death. berkshirejohn (6655) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2007
500ml bottle from Morrisons.Chestnut with a white head; rather thin body with caramel malts and dry biscuity finish. Nothing special. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2007
Bottle from morrisons. Aroma is spicey, slightly peppery good balance of pale biscuity malts and fruits. Taste is again a great balance of slightly richer malts than expected and floural hops. Nice one.
