AshtonMcCobb (4134) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 30, 2011
On tap @ Bert’s Bar. Pours mahogany with a nicely proportioned head. The nose has sweet fruit, possibly strawberries or apple tart. The taste is of strawberries and biscuits - jammy dodgers in fact. The palate is medium in structure and texture with a dry finish. Overall, a good ale!

JohnRMurdoch (3901) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 2, 2012
Cask @ The Pear Tree, Edinburgh. Dark reddish brown colour, good head. Fruity caramel malt aroma. Fruity slightly spicy flavour, bitter aftertaste. Served a bit cold but still a good winter bitter.

BeerViking (3336) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2011
Cask at the Magpie, red-brown with toffee and hints of strawberry and lemon on the nose, a good body with more toffee and some dark fruit. Nice, though a bit lightweight for a winter warmer.
