S: Sweet malt, a bit of roasted barley.

T: Gentle sweetness followed by bitterness which seems to come both from some darker malts and hops. mild taste.

M: starts creamy but finishes a bit watery.

D: mild as the label indicates. not my style of beer but an easy drinker.

A standard 500 ml bottle emptied into my righteous mug. Cooled beer removed from the fridge and consumed.

Appearance- A deep rich cola black. It has a slight head and lots of carbonation.
Smell- Sweetness and something akin to root beer.
Tastes- A fair bit of sweetness with finish of roasted grain. The roasted finish is a bit harsh with out the bitterness or really any pleasant/satisfying kick.
Mouthfeel- A light body- normal for the style. Highly Carbonated and a thin finish.
Drinkability- A low ABV brew but as seen above and below its not really worth the cost. Just pick something else from Green Man and you'll thank yourself later.

Summary- A roasted root beer, overly sweet with a light mouthfeel and weird cross between sarsaparilla and roasted grain, with a lot of carbonation. This is the base beer for the Celt, which I enjoyed. However on its own its a different beast and untidy monkey of a working man's beer.
