Bottle from Tesco Bradford. Black colour with a large frothy tan coloured head with lacing on the glass. Sweet malt aroma with maybe a hint of nut. Smooth and silky with a taste of malt. BrotherLogic (252) - California, USA - JUN 19, 2010
Bottle bought from Premier in Sheffield. Pours a dark red with little head, light aroma, initially quite weak tasting but settled down over the course of drinking. Pleasant but not astonishing. piscator34 (2515) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 12, 2011
Bottled sample. Brownish-red in colour with moderate carbonation. Faint aromas of pale malt, minerals, orchard fruit and vanilla. Watery on the palate with notes of toffee, toasted nuts, molasses, and chocolate powder. A bit too watery and simplistic, but not all that bad either. Average.

500ml bottle from Waitrose. Very bubbly deep ruby pour, fairly large frothy tan/light brown lasting head. Fairly roasty aroma, I get more tart raisin than nutty character, but it’s not bad, not too sour, not overly sweet. The taste is ... yeah, pretty sour - like rhubarb or unripe red currants, the sourness quickly overpowers the lightly nutty/chocolate malt - then it all fades away even more quickly - sip by sip: light roast----sour!-- Light, airy, ephemerally acidic mouthfeel, solidly carbonated ---- I didn’t hate it. thomat (3830) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 8, 2011

500ml bottle poured into a tulip glass. The colour of cola. Similar carbonation and flat head. Taste wss mild roast and a bit one dimensional. Okay. beeebon (443) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2014
Dark in colour with not much in the way of head. Fruity, sweet and a bit nutty. Very easy drinking and rather nice!
