SarkyNorthener's rating

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 12/20
SarkyNorthener (4847) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, - JAN 29, 2013
Bottle. Amber beer medium head. Toffee aroma. Taste is sweet toffee with some malts. Weak on the palate. Easy to drink just dull.

beeebon (478) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2017
Bottle from Home Bargains. Pours a clear brown amber colour with minimal fizzy off white head. Aroma is biscuity, a touch of caramel, metallic, skunky and a bit of vegetable/grassy hops. Taste is surprisingy ok although somewhat fizzy/watery in the mouth. For such a weak beer this isn’t so bad but also really not too great either

Mister hurtigt smagen af nødder, men en rigtig flot farve. En næsten fraværende bitterhed

Not going to set the beer world alight but ok for the low abv. Malt driven with a hint of dusty hop easy drinking

shoestring (427) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - APR 1, 2017
UPDATED: APR 3, 2017 Slight tinny shepherd neame thing on nose for me . Looks good . Biscuit and light caramel in mouth. Ever slight watery but wow good for weak abv. Would never have guessed . Given high score taking cheap price and what they did with 2.8 per cent. Defo a winner for 89 p

Cask at the Rock, Cambridge. Amberish brown with very little head. Pleasant if very muted biscuit aroma with a hint of cinnamon toast. Taste is sourish sweet, with a woody tang near the end of the sip. Medium body, a bit on the oily side. It tastes stronger than 2.8%, although it’s a fairly standard bitter otherwise.

Tastes ok but watery. Little aroma or palate. Looks nice enough, probably won’t have again.

Bottle as a lovely gift. Initial and post-initial impressions were: this is poor. Have to say though, the last few mouthfuls were a marked improvement. When warm, this took on a smoked edge, masking the cereal somewhat.

Bottle. Clear deep amber beer with white frothy head. Stale nose of hops and peppermint. Thin watery taste with cream, pepper and metal. No finish, just a residual staleness. Truly rubbish.

50cl bottle from Kellys Expats shop. Thick creamy white head. Clear light amber pour. Subtle bitterness.

uckelman (813) - Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2015
Pours clear amber, some off white head. Aroma is sweet and musty. Rather sweet and vegetal. Heavier than usual body for an English bitter. This is ok for a low-alcohol beer, but really suffers from not having a bit more fermentation.
