Bottle in presentation tube, 500ml from Tesco, Banbury. Brown with slight head. Sweet malty beer that had non of the twists and turns mentioned in the blurb, in fact it was about as predictable as a Christmas Day episode when a tragedy is bound to come along. About as interesting and compelling as a Monday night double episode. faroeviking (10913) - FAROE ISLANDS - DEC 17, 2009
Botella. Clear brown colour. Malty carmel bit grainy aroma. Ok mouthfeel. Pleasant malty flavour with caramel, some dark fruit, mild spice and a mild bitterness. DruncanVeasey (8226) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2009 Red brick-emblazoned cardboard tube retailing in Hinckley Tesco at £1.50 in the run up to Xmas, and the only new beer I’ve picked up in that store since the week it opened. The lengths an RB junkie will go to to get their fix. Mercifully, it’s a half decent caramelly BB with a faint rub of hop oiliness about it, not the ghastly pasteurised mess I feared. Bright bronze with a foamy white collar. Aroma caramel, faint herbal and hedgerow traces, sulphur making me question whether it’s been pasteurised at all. Some body and faint fruit; slick and unexciting with dunked Hobnob, pencil shavings and (fittingly) soap in the mix, but nothing much of anything. Disappointing, considering the aroma has some real toffee, hazelnut and hop promise. Brainless entertainment.
