AROMA: chocolate, caramel, hint of licorice, roasty

PALATE: light body, thin feel, soft carbonation
OVERALL: aromas are quite faint and the thin palate makes this beer miss the mark.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2015 On tap at King’s Head W2. Deep colour with red-purple tinge in the depths. Smooth, fruity and malty on the palate with a hint of bitterness cutting through into the not overly long finish. Pleasant dark bitter.
Re-rate in Elephant and Castle W8. Review stands but score was a bit miserly, upgraded slightly.

Någonstans mellan brown ale och premium ale. Mer malt än humlekaraktär. Fruktig och blommig med nötter, karamell och skogspromenad i smakbilden. Bra! Kommer mer till sin rätt på fat. Alla smaker djupare, munkänslan lenare. Drucken på the Spread Eagle, Liss, Hampshire, UK

After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity wall adhesive light brown foam collar which was fine and even of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a clear brown color and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a roasted malty touch . This beer smells malty.

Cask. My second rate of a beer in both cask and bottle form. This was tried whilst on holiday in the Isle of Man wth my lovely wife Glenys in July 2011. For some reason it is fairly easy to obtain on the island.Not a lot of body and lacks complexity.Taste what it is- a bitter for mass cosumption. Boring and bland.

On tap @ Harbourlights, Noordwijk, Netherlands. Colour is brown, with a red glow over it. Flavour is nutty, roasted and malty. Flavour has a bittersweet touch in it and it goes down pretty well. Nice find.
