Autumnal brown small staying head taste malts caramel slightly thin in body forgettable. BlackHaddock (7410) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2015
500ml bottle poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard at home on 20th Nov 2015. Good looking, clean, deep amber/chestnut bodied beer, on top a stable off-white blanket of foam. Roasted/toasted malts rule the nose and flavour, some toffee/caramel esters in the aroma and taste but not strong or powerful enough to take over the hop bitterness below the surface. Palate a bit thin, but my sweet tooth liked aspects of this, so considering it’s cheap supermarket price, it is not too bad. Gary (1999) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2015
500ml . In a tulip. Dusty yeast nose and dusty old books , vanilla covered in fucken dust. caramel and bread . kinda gross but for a Low Boost bitter this gets a jaded 7 on nose . Dull piano colour with a subtle white head . Flavours are ok but dusty and soulless, this would shine on cask . caramel , brown bread, spicy hops , dusty cobwebs , toasted dates , figs and burnt leaves . some decent palate and flavours but too stake in this pasteurised bottle allmyvinyl (10692) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 12, 2014

Bottle, from Lidl, Barton upon Humber (3.8%). Amber brown, thin but sustained white head and gentle condition. Slightly earthy caramel and a muted spiciness in the nose, quite dry and thin in the mouth with an initial brief sweetness quickly supplanted by a metallic hoppiness, finish is long, dry and hop bitter. joe19612 (2964) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark brown colour with a thin white head, light aroma, the taste is bitter with a dry finish. StueyD (1584) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2013
A mid to dark reddish-brown coloured beer with a frothy white head. A tad sulphurous on opening but this soon dissipates, to leave a fruity, slightly grassy hop aroma. Dry mouthfeel. A bitter citrusy hop taste, then a slightly sweeter malt flavour comes through, the combination of which gives the beer a candied peel flavour, plus a biscuity, cereal taste that lasts into the finish along with the citrusy hops.
