0.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle. Bought for a £1 at Home Bargins to break a twenty for parking. Nose is stale, berry, slight floral notes. Apperance, is murky and flat. Taste is almost nonexistent, itís predominantly water, slight berry, a little bitterness, no finish at all. Mouthfeel is like your uncles first attempt at home brew, thin and watery.
I was not expecting a lot given itís providence, but this is genuinely one of the worst beers I have had in years. I assume itís a bad batch which has been dumped in HB to serve the undiscriminating alcoholics of the north and the desperate. Terrible.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from the Beers of Europe Christmas Crate. Burnt orange pour, no head. Lots of sweet citrus fruit in the aroma. Not too troubling flavours of malt and sweet citrus. Exceedingly flat. It irks me that so many of these Crimbo beers have very little carbonation and are as dull as fuck. The labelís nice though.

500ml bottle from B&M. Very disappointing beer. I guess you just chuck a Christmas label on a bad beer and people will buy it, I did. Deep gold. Little is any head. Some malts and caramel in aroma and taste.

Bottle from Beers of Europe (not my selection). Poured a hazy chestnut colour, with a scummy white head. Aroma of dried fruit, wet grass and malt. Cooked fruit flavours, with some cake and straw. Finish was copper, bready malt and peal.

smells just like warm water, burnished gold in colour and the head has gone, tastes amazingly like flat warm cola. the mouth feel is awful, to be honest i think it may well go down the sink.

Bottled 04/04/14. A dark brown coloured beer with a white head. Very fruity and malty. Grainy and chewy. A bit of jam. Seems quite hoppy really but ends up being too fruity chewy.
