2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Awful, tastes of malt and nothing else. No real smell other than malt and no alcohol content. Nice in a stew though!

Bottle. Smells almost synthetic. Tastes weak, lightly malty, and there is little else. Very easy to drink but leaves little impression.

275ml bottle from King of the Belgains, Hartford. Dark brown, opaque with a slight purplish hue. Light aroma of porridge, Ovaltine. Taste is sweet and milky which is pleasant at first but it becomes cloying very quickly. No wonder Mr Creosote exploded after drinking a crate of it. There isn’t a lot to this beer but hey, it’s a classic.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very dark brown color almost black, with creamy coffee foam. Aromas on the weaker side of caramel, toasted malts and toffee with that stronger aged touch. Palate, light body with thin slightly mouth coating texture leaving very sweet caramel finish. Taste is definatly sweet with hints of toffee and caramel, but not intense, quite watery. Overall, interesting, it is only 2.8% and in a way like very water and weak dark beer, and quite simple. Interesting.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2017 So enjoyable and drinkable. Reminds me of a not so sweet sweetheart stout if that makes sense. Nice mouthfeel. Flavoursome for strength. Plums coffee

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma of faint bleach, appearance like coca cola,small cola like head. Taste well....like flat cola without sugar, a very faint hop bitterness and creamy ever so slightly sweet taste. Palate slightly astringent. Not unpleasant but a fine example of a beer that suffers from such a low ABV.

Typical working man’s club beer, which I drank in a typical WMC. Decent looking brown/red body, with a touch of yellowish head. Fairly thin. Nose is good, and typical brown ale, with some red and darker fruit. Taste faded a bit.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a deep brown colour with a foamy tan head. Aroma of caramel, some toasted malts, slight dark fruits, subtle molasses and cola. Taste of caramel, cola, some toasted malts, a little chocolate, slight dark fruits and subtle yeast. Light bodied but a watery texture and moderate carbonation. A sweet, caramel with a soft toasty bitterness in the finish. Definitely a sweet beer, like drinking a cola with a subtle bitterness. It’s ok but thin and lacks depth.
