Taste: Processed slices of smoked ham and it's malty for sure. Leathery - reminds me of the taste you get when you passed the tannery in Downton, Wiltshire. This has been chilled way too much for my liking.
Appearance: Very very very dark red. Quite pleasing to the eye.
Would you buy 2? In a Brains pub, with limited options? Might be a good choice.
Would you buy 4? Time to move pubs.
Rating (out of 7): 4 * * * * It's fine, but there's always better out there.
