reebtogi (6149) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 22, 2012
2L brown plastic bottle sampled many years ago poured a dusty light brown color with a huge white head that retained well and left a few spots of lacing as it settled. Aroma was nutty and earthy with some toasted grains. Taste is an earthy hop bitterness with a nutty butter flavor and a toasted malty sweetness. Light bodied and was surprisingly tasty despite its low ABV. A little bit musty for my tastes, may have been an old bottle.

09.02.2008. 0,5l Can. Golden colour. Weak aroma with almost no hopping. No aftertaste. A little dissapointing.

Clear amber coloured beer with small white head and lots of carbonation. Medium palate. Finish is herby ending bitter and slightly dry, a soft ending.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2008
Searles, Hunstanton. Thin nutty malt aroma. Biscuit, vanilla, chalk and vegetable water. Heavily diluted gravy, varnishy bitterness. Pretty awful, but bearable. Makes total sense its brewed by John Smiths.

jonas (7397) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - DEC 3, 2007
Can. Chestnut colouring, off-white whipped cream head. Neutral, light nutty aroma. Metallic roasted base flavor - shavings off a rusty nail in water, light bitter finish. Thin mouthfeel, metallic on the roof of the mouth. Watery finish.

detroitsteel (235) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2007
Draught at Cheshunt Rugby Club. It was served very cold, but still had some flavour - a tea-ishness with hints of citrus. Any hoppiness that may have been there was frozen out and the serving temp. also killed off the finish. However I enjoyed it - it was a most refreshing post-match pint.

imdownthepub (14225) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2007
Tinned, pasteurised. Brown amber, a little murky, carbonated but short lasting head. All that was available at a party, so had several, largely tasteless, maybe some boiled malt and sticky sugary caramel notes, otherwise just dull and boring. Drank to be sociable.

Rune (12071) - Troms, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2007
Can. Deep brown body under a creamy, white head. Malty aroma. Taste like watered flavoured caramel. A bit smoky impression. Cant find the bitterness. Insipid (02.02.2007)

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2007 A Mes rate: Half from the wonderful (not at all) Cherry Orchard in Newington. Had this listening to the local "talent" slaughter Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd. It has to be said the beer matched up to the quality of the music. So watery I could have put a goldfish in there and it wouldnt have died. Nothing in the nose or flavour. The only thing of note was a slight bitterness to the finish. Yum!
