Served cold from 500ml bottle into pint mug.

A) Ruby red-brown, almost clear. Little bubbles, little head, only thin film and some lacing.

S) Faint smell of rubber bands. Oh no, not looking good.

T) Quite pleasant - first sensation is of a lightish ale (bear in mind this is 6.6%), then followed by a faintly warm alcohol and mild malt flavour, then slightly bittering hops on the aftertaste. Well thought out actually, although no dominating flavours.

M) Definitely more presence from the high ABV. Little carbonation, but it does cut through to balance it out. Again, well thought out and certainly more there than your average 'supermarket' beer.

O) More sophistication in there than the nose suggests. Maybe I drank it too cold to get the full effect. Would recommend as it represents value for money and offers a notch above the average English ales of 4-5% ABV.
