Oh dear, oh dear oh dear.

pours like your average brown ale, cheeky or not dark whiskey light dark rum coloured body with wispy traces of tan head.

light aromas of brown sugar and burnt toffee but all very faint.

Sweet tasting with honeycomb flavours and a hint of cocoa.

A very dull affair in fact despite the extra kick of alcohol strength a little less enjoyable than another Northern brown ale coughNewcastleSplutter.

Like a Barnsley lass, a bit of a laugh, a bit of fun but your mates would rip the piss out of you if they knew.

500ml Brown bottle poured twice into a 'La Chouffe' stemmed tulip glass.

Good dark reddy brown beer, the tan coloured head sets the brown ale off nicely. The body is almost clear, just a slight mist stops it being so. Lacing stayed as the beer dropped down the glass.

German hops (?) are used to give it an aroma according to the label, I was unable to pick them up with my nose. The beer had more of a malted bread and biscuit smell to me.

The beer is fairly bitter, the malt content keeping it on the straight and narrow in the brown ale flavour stakes. Three different grains are used, barley and wheat being two of them, don't know what the third one is.

The label suggests eating Trotters, Cow heel, Pig's bladder and Elder with this beer. Tongue in cheek I hope. A good English cheese platter would be my choice.

Easy to drink and uncomplicated, a good beer for the price.
