Bottle from the Cooperative in Newbiggin by the Sea.
Appearance - deep amber to brown. Good head.
Nose - fudge and brown sugar. Sweet malt.
Taste - more fudge and sweet malt.
Palate - creamy and medium bodied. Sweet but fairly balanced on the finish.
Overall - got better. Tom303 (147) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2017
Copper/brown colour head that dissipates. Aroma is sweet caramel hint of fruit. Taste to follow caramel/toffee with a gentle fruity bitterness but overall on the sweeter side of things. Not bad at all 47574xeCD (1349) - Coventry, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2017

Served in a snifter from a 500ml bottle. Pours garnet-brown colour with a thick creamy head. Aroma is malt, caramel, grass, bread. Taste is malt, caramel, red fruits, bitter-sweet with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Medium body with medium carbonation. Very nice, clean and refreshing ale. wheresthepath (2424) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2016
Bottle, gift from Dad- cheers! Brown with a thin white head. Brown sugar and nutty malt flavours are rather destroyed by a heavy dose of cardboard. Poor. BeardedAvenger (1278) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2016
Bottle at home. Bought at Morrisons, Aldershot. Sweet malty aroma. Dark brown/chestnut. Blotchy off-white head. The thing that first srikes me about this is the wave of carbonation that rolls over the tongue. Otherwise the body is quite watery. Sweet, with a bitter finish. Nothing special. Too fizzy. dxbrad (57) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2016
A north east classic, pours slightly red with foamy off white head. Less fizz than the the brown ale from neighbouring newcastle. Toffee sweetness, quite bready, a little floral. All good! MarcinG (1065) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2016
Butelka 500ml. Ciemnobrunatny kolor z rubinowym refleksem. Piana biala srednia opada bardzo szybko. Aromat slodowo-owocowy z karmelowym akcentem. Wodniste o plytkim smaku. Dominuja slody i palone cukry owoce i orzechy w tle. Nic wielkiego...
