look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

a - looks ok. bit of a head that vanishes in 30 seconds. Yellowish colour

s - slightly citrusy, no malt to speak of

t - urgh. offensively inoffensive. so dull I'm going to have to sharpen all my kitchen knives because they've been to close to it

m - thin, dull, lifeless

o - everything wrong with British bitter

bought this and Pirate's Gold in Peckhams in Glasgow. Both hit the sink after half a bottle, and I only drank that much so I could accurately review them here (what a trooper, eh?). Will not buy again.

Oh dear, I have two more beers from this brewery to try (and review). This is the second I've tried and it isn't looking good. I hate knocking the 'small guy' but this isn't a great advert for the brewery.

Well packaged, this 500ml brown bottle has a lovely front label and the rear one gives you the normal information about ingreadiants etc.

It goes down hill very rapidly after that I'm afraid.

Poured into a Veltins Pilsner stemmed tulip glass it looked a dull gold colour with no head from the start, just a small white collar around the glass.

Boring is the word to describe this beer, very little aroma, watery and bland.

I hope the next two brews are a whole lot better than the first two I've had.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Sampled at the Newcastle Arms, Newcastle.
A dirty, golden to light brown beer with a thin head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass.

Smell is fruity with some faint malt notes. The hops are not very abundant, but there is a light English hop smell.

Taste is bitter with faint hoppy notes, my guess is EKG, or English earthy hops. A moderate fruitiness that is just a little estery. Body is quite thin, a little too thin. Aftertaste is light and short.

2.91/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

Appearance: orangey-brown, good clarity, spongey layer of off-white foam, good head retention

Aroma: chocolate cake, almond paste, malt, brown sugar, grass, iron

Flavor: dryish malt backbone with hints of old, weak coffee, perfume, bitter apple, and burnt caramel; finishes dryish with a lingering bitterness

Mouthfeel: medium body, mild carbonation, thinnish texture

Other comments: A bit vapid, thin and non-exciting. Difficult to write a dynamic review about beers like this.

500ml bottle, poured into a nonic pint glass

Pours with a golden amber body. Off white head with good retention, some lacing

Smell, dry and musty in a similar vein to the Cornish Mutiny. Some dms, boiled corn and a little bit of bready malt

Taste, crisp and biscuity. Vegetal flavour once again along with some buttery diaceytl....some hop bitterness on the finish

Pretty poor, not something I'd have again
