A very pleasant strong ale.in the bad old days when the supply of bottled beers was very limited this was one that was always available.A nice brownish colour with plenty of malt present.Nice mouthfeel and a good balance of tastes.When you shop in the supermarket this one should jump out.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2011 So far the only beer I have come across from this brewery. +++ Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle the beer poured a nice mahogany color with a huge creamy tan head. There was a faint bitter malt aroma. The flavor had a nice full malt presence that faded to bitter on the aftertaste. This beer has very strong English characteristics. Nice if you like the style.

brewshthereen (316) - Oregon, USA - AUG 19, 2004
Rich, carmel malt aroma. Toasted bread, nuttiness in the nose as well. Pleasant hop sharpness followed by a full malt backbone. Carmel, honey and toffee flavors. Fantastic bitter/sweet palate. Not a real complex beer, and even though a bit watery it is still a satisfying brew.

SpringsLicker (3172) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 15, 2004
Chestnut brown with a quickly fading head. Sweet malt aroma. Flavor is more pronounced than the aroma would get you ready for. The flavor is malty sweet, but balanced by a hop dryness. Body is a little thin. Fair.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2004
Dark amber color with a decent hill of foam on top. Smell is faint sweetness and mostly malt. The flavor however is much more noticable sweet, and has a banana flavor as well. The palate is rather smooth, and not very hoppy, but still respectable.

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - AUG 10, 2004
Medium brown with white head. Somewhat fruity/estery aroma. Malt flavor with a hint of sweetness/fruit. Medium body.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 10, 2004
Bottle pours reddish brown, copper hues, small frothy white head, decent lacing, with effervescent carbonation.   Sweet aroma, rather fruity too.   Apples/Pears up front, followed by malts, but I am also getting a pungent glue (like that used for fly tying) or quick setting cement flavor as well.   Medium body and mouthfeel.   Finishes with more of that glue/quick cement.   WTF?!?!?!

Liberty (52) - Stompwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2004
Tasted from the bottle: nice brown color. It is quite a sweet beer, but also quite bitter (finish). Lots of malt in de body.
