Bottle shared at Richís welfare pad thanks to Landlocked Mike, cheers Mike. Golden amber beer with small head. Aroma of caramel and mixed veg. Taste is oxidised, kvass, caramel and malts. Past its best, not great.

ChainGangGuy (4860) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAR 9, 2011
16 ounce pint - $6.50 at Taco Mac in Canton, Georgia. Appearance: Delivered to the table a clear, golden-amber body with just under an inch of white head. Smell: Wishy-washy aroma of weak malted barley with a thin whiff of their house yeast strain. The hops didnít bother to show up in the aroma, and I canít say I blame them. Taste: Faintly bready malts with a very, very small amount of toffee crisp sweetness. 1-2 drops of apricot juice. Dissatisfyingly watery from the onset. Iota of yeast. Leafy green hop character, albeit minuscule, with very little bitterness. Drying, water-soaked finish. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium-low carbonation. Drinkability: Balls.

A 1997 bottle at 6.5% abv. Cloudy brown beer. Sweet malty caramel with a lingering sweet aftertaste. Hardly a trace of hop. Has survived well and was quite drinkable.

imdownthepub (13688) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2008
Bottled, 500ml, pasteurised. Had this for quite a while. Gold amber with white head. Full, slightly sweet and cardboardy beer, but with a background spiciness and grainy flavour. The hops have melded into the malt body over time. Itís ok.

There seems to have been an older and newer formulation, I reckon, so my rating is an average of the two. As has been noted elsewhere here, the newer version is a wee bit hoppier, and I fancied more the older, slightly sweeter variant. Still, a nice lighter ale, well drinkable under any conditions.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2005
Aroma is typical wychwood with their sort of burnt soggy cardboard hoppines, but not as bad as usual since a sweetness helps it out. Taste is mainly malty with a nice honey sort of sweetness finish is a nicer type of wychwood hopps which is reasonably wet. Alround a not bad beer not sure if i could session it though.

leaparsons (10130) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2002
Please note - I cannot compare this to real Dogs Bollocks, understood. Anyhoo, This is an average ale that is quite strong and fruity with a dry mouthfeel. Pretty dull, though.

SilkTork (5602) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2002
Clean, zippy and refreshing. The sweetness has been reduced, and there is now a hoppy balance to the finish.
