Color Coca Cola. Dos dedos de espuma, no muy duradera. Agradable aroma de malta y azúcar tostada. Carbonatación y cuerpo medios. Muy muy bebible con un tono dulcito pero nada cansino, malta muy rica, y final carbónico seco, también muy agradable. Rica.

Âmbar com média formação de espuma de pouca duração. Notas discretas de malte, pouco lúpulo e leve madeira. Corpo leve com final médio e retrogosto amadeirado com discreto amargor

Can at home. Pours clear brown, nose is dull toffee, grassy, taste is similar, bit bland.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2016 There’s something that draws me to this beer more than it should maybe its the laughing cavalier on thee can or the feeling your not really drinking quite poppy short lasting head and light

Brown, little head, light nose with no flaws. Light taste medium body and medium lenght.

500ml can from Bargain Booze, Skewen. BB July 2015. Copper coloured, sparkling, small scummy white head, sparse lacing. Aroma is light toffee. Body is medium, low-ish carbonation, very foamy. Taste is very soft, actually it’s like malty foam, a little wholewheat bread sweetness and no real bitterness. Very lightly flavoured. Drinkable and inoffensive. Maybe my low expectations helped this beer a bit, but it’s OK.

Amber colour and malty flavour with big white head. Bitter finish. I used to drink a can in the train from King’s Cross….

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 500ml can served in a Pint glass. A: Pours a dark amber copper color. Clear. Forms a big bubbled creamy head. Good retention and some spotty lacings left S: Caramel malts, grains and British flowery hops. Slightly sweet. Citrus hops. A little bit bready T: Slightly sweet grains upfront. Toffee, caramel malts. A little bit fruity with light notes of roasted malts. Smooth bitterness. Citrus hops. In overall, a dry and light bitter beer. Quite "British" M: Very light watery body. Medium to low carbonation. Aftertaste is made of caramel, grains and citrus hops, mainly O: Easy drinking. A low quality Bitter but still medium session beer [ BA Review @ 11/20/2012 ]

"again, bought on the rep of one of their beers, and this one didn’t match up well. kinda muddles scottish ale flavors. kinda. pretty thin and messy. not offensive, even though the metallic bitterness was present, but i’ll pass on all but the scotch ale in the future."
