Review and Tasting

Sampled on 08/08/2011


Clear, dark chestnut brown amber with little or no head.


Malt loaf, fruit cake, cigar tobacco and dark honey.


Malt loaf with thinness and lack of alcohol saved by hop flavours.


Tobacco, caramel and caramelised dried fruit. The good news is at just 0.2 of a UK unit per 275ml bottle our nanny-like state approves on men drinking as much as 20 bottles of this bitter a day.
