Beautiful deep reddy-brown colour, with a nice off-white head - which dissapates fairly quickly. Faint malty aroma, followed by nice malty, caramel and toffee flavours. Very mild fizz on the tongue.

Bottle at home. Murky dark brown, no real head. Light coffee, biscuit, slight caramel nose, little metallic lager malts. Soft nutty brown ale characteristics, slight chocolate, slight coffee, grassy metallic hops in the linger. Dull, but not horrendous.

[bottle at Danish invasion--thanks fonefan and cgarvieuk!] Honey and weak malt aroma with some caramel. Almost clear dark copper with no top. Weak flavour, balanced toward bitter; bready caramel malt and a little DMS cooked vegetable. Sour DMS finish along with bitterness; medium body.

Benjii (3050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 12, 2012
Bottle from Drinkmonger. Pours a dark brown colour with a fair white head. Aroma of chocolate, roasty malt and caramel. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2013 Bottle courtesy of mr_h & Hippo Beers. Reddish medium brown colour, reasonable head. Sweet grassy coffee caramel malt aroma. Dry grassy caramel malt flavour, bitter aftertaste. This brewery has better beers.

[500ml bottle, Cornelius Beer & Wine] Poured out at Cornelius by Bob - he admitted he’s not particularly happy with how this one came out. Decent looking brown bitter, thin head. Biscuity malt aroma - thin on the palate, touch of sweetness, before a short biscuit finish reminiscent of Timmy Taylor’s Landlord. A decent beer, without doubt, but as Bob said, has very little body and no real elements of a 70/-. First batch should be re-rated later, I think [09042012]
