Bottle at home. Brown pour, tan head. Aroma of caramel, butter, some licorice, slightly roasty and some English hops. Flavor is sweet creamy caramel with butter. Thin watery body. Out of balance and too mild for my taste. The_Bish (1118) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2013
I’m now winning 8-1 in a game that only I’m playing. Think I’m on to a winner. This isn’t too bad at all. Not even a waft of alcohol, some coffee and choc but it is all a little sweet and each flavour is only very mild. I guess that makes sense.

Inoffensive older style ale, very mild in character with a small sweetness and some small roasted malts for its flavour. Very dark with no head and a very light character making it very easy to sup. danlo (3356) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours a dark ruby brown-black, with a foamy tan head that diminishes and a malty aroma. Taste is sweet malt & cola-like, with a roasted, nutty edge. Smooth light body, medium carbonation level with a dryish finish. OK considerating the low alcohol level. jmgreenuk (10330) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 4, 2013
Bottle from one of the supermarkets. Poured like a flat cola with a broken tan head. The aroma is weak, but there is some dry maltiness there. The flavour is weak bitter and some malt and that’s where it ends really. The palate is weak and there is no real aftertaste. I don’t dislike this beer, but at the same time, it’s nothing special either. It it floats your boat then great, but sadly my boat is somewhere down there with the Titanic!

Bottle at the Cricketers, Shirley. It pours dark brown with a small beige head. The nose is sweet, flat cola, hint of toast and nut. The taste is cola, light roasted malt, weak coffee, toffee and cardboard with a dry, sweet finish. Light body and moderate carbonation. Not much to it really... A simple, sweet brown ale. Can?t say I agree with the official description of "full-bodied with a luscious flavour". Not too different to flat cola really!

Bottle. Dark brown no head. Sweet malt aroma. Taste is sweet malts and mild dark toffee. Watery on the palate. Easy to drink Mild, but maybe its past its sell by date now. markymook (1) - - NOV 14, 2012 does not count
I really like this ale. It is simple,easy drinking and sweet. Not everyones thing but it is mine. jackl (8555) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Bottle @ a random Irish pub in Stockwell. The pour’s deep brown with hardly any head. The nose is mild malt sweetness, hints of nuts, maybe a touch of chocolate. The taste is as mild-mannered as the aroma. Light nutty sweet malts. Smooth and unchallenging. Overall, fine. Boring. ComradeK (1269) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours a clear deep chestnut brown, with a small beige head, which does not last all that well nor leave much lacing. The main aroma is prune, with some hints of vanilla and biscuity malt. Very mild grass and spice hops lead into a slightly weird blend of prune and banana. The banana persists through to the finish, where it is joined by some faint, doughy biscuit malt. This is not the world’s most flavoursome beer, and what flavour exists is not terribly inspiring. A pretty missable beer.
