Deep copper coloured, strong bitter. Packed full of malty character and dry, lingering hoppy finish. Not too sweet as some stronger ales are.

BlackHaddock (3924) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2014
30th Aug 2014, cask pint at the Briar Rose, Birmingham. Pours a clear amber with an off white head that stayed around and gave off some good lacing. Malt lead in the nose with a slight citrus undertone, malts ruled the taste too with a semi-sweet caramel and dark fruit like flavours. Decent.

Jen81 (17) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2014
@Good Yarn, Uxbridge. Copper coloured with a thin head that soo disperses. Not huge aromas, but first sip is immediately Cadbury’s Dairy Milk like. Maltiness essential comes through. Easy drinking.

prawlie (1157) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2012

Theydon_Bois (9280) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2012
Cask at the Claude De Val (JDW), Camberley - 18/08/12. Pours a slightly obscured copper/orange with a very thin white head. Strong malts on the nose and a little orange. Strong malty taste as per the nose and a background of citrus fruit orange and grapefruit predominating and a little toffee/butter. Light to medium body - easy drinking not bad.
