a style not found easily, but now not too far away! picked up some after a HB club meeting.
poured from a bottle to a clear pint glass: yields only a single finger of creamy off-white head. the head reduces to a thin layer of foam quickly. the body is a nice clear ruby color. no lacing here.
the smell is on the lighter side. some malts that are bready and toasty, mixed with some toffee and some light fruitiness. nothing to write home about.
mmm. nice malty, nutty, and caramel taste, backed by some simple bitterness. there's a touch of earthy hop notes in there, but mostly the nice malty flavors. but it's not overpowering in the least. these flavors are not strong and are quite well balanced.
nice and creamy mouthfeel. medium-body or just a bit above that really. again, surprising for such a 'small' beer.
this is a session beer. the beer hunter term "moreish" is definently the way to describe this. easy to drink more than one. too easy really.
i was pleasantly surprised by this one. if only 'pubs' would carry this one on draft.

Appearance is clear; dark amber in color. The head is a frothy 2 fingers high, with good lacing and retention.
Smells of brown bread and toasted malts.
The taste is at first very cola-like, with a light malt sweetness. It's then countered by some earthy bitterness and well as roasted grain notes. There is also a bit of a stale note that may come from the age on this sample.
Mouthfeel is medium in body with an average amount of carbonation. The finish is semi-dry and has lingering flavors of toasted malts.
Overall a good session beer, low in alcohol and easy to approach, it would go well with any meal an would also be a good gateway brew.
