ManVsBeer (10927) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2015
Bottle from Tesco, Brighouse. Reddish brown with no head. Has a sweet-malt aroma and taste. Has a fruitiness but nothing too special.

Another very nice beer from the revisionist range. An enticing red ale with a sweet bread aroma. A great drinkable beer with balanced hoppy notes.

teorn88 (7687) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 29, 2014
Backlog rating. Bottle at Caspar tasting at Chriso’s, London. It pours a murky amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet with notes of caramel, bread and pine cones. Taste is sweet and malty, with notes of toffee, plums, grains and citrus peel. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, tasty

triskaideka (369) - Killarney, IRELAND - DEC 14, 2014
500 ml bottle - pours dark red w/ white head. More hop profile than reds usually have - has the normal malty profile of a red ales - slightly more complex than usual for this style. Worth trying

ricardotorero (55) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2014
Again another good beer in this range. Don’t let the Tesco/Martson’s tag put you off. As said before £1.25 for 500ml is very good

beeebon (474) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2014
Upon pouring and taking a smell I was quite excited about this, resiny, berries, tropical fruit, malt carmel all coming through. Taste however isn’t anywhere near as interesting, fairly standard mildly sweet and mild to medium bitter. A little one dimenional and rather thin and watery. Not bad at all, especially for the £1.25 that I paid for it. Overall, not bad.

2.5
christhoel (286) - chesterfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2014
roasty, brown, red, clear, minimal head, light sweetness, medium bitterness, medium body, thick feel, soft carbonation, bitter, nothing special to write about just a average bitter type ale

3.2
kwik-lime (2021) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. Fruity, well hopped with some sweet malt to balance. Decent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
