Bottle from Beer_Hawk; Thanks! Nose is sweet caramel and roastiness; clear walnut with a small tan head, that left really quickly; flavor has some hop bitterness, caramel malt, and walnuts in the flavor. The hops disappear and the finish is sweetness.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle in the States. Just a boring a beer. Nothing makes me want to try it again. Not remotely the same quality of beers sampled in northern England as the label claims.

A slightly hazed dark brown pour. A flavor of sweet caramel malt. A light bitter finish. A very balanced sweet yet bitter beer. Good to decent mouthfeel with light carbonation. A very good drinker.

Color is nut brown, as one might expect. Flavor is nutty, as one might expect. Nice creamy, malty bready flavor. Sampled at Knoxville Brewer’s Jam, 2006.

Bottle (6’er) from Harris Teeter in Belle Meade. This beer is legit, though maybe overrated. Great body, pretty sweet (like a honey brew), can’t find the nutty flavor many talk about. Great level of carbonation, which is a very important aspect to me. Good mid-level micro.

I’ve had the draught and the bottled. Definitely sweet from the beginning and a slight toasted flavor. Finish leaves a very sweet taste for a brown ale. Ok.

355ml bottle obtained in a trade with <a
href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?U target=blank>piscator34, thanks Kris. Dull brown in colour, quickly dissipating tan coloured head, no lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet, some caramel malts, toasty, light chocolate. The flavour is highly sweet, some toffee, nutty, very light roasted malts. Creamy mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes quite sweet, lingering. Other then being too sweet for my tastes there is nothing wrong with this.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gift from Aurelius on his travels. 12 oz bottle - pours a dark copper color, light, off-white head. neutral aroma with some fresh lake water accents if you try really hard. Flavor has some toffee notes, some nuttiness and a slight touch of chocolate in the back end. Medium thick mouthfeel - but metallicizes in the end. Has potential. Had this on vacation at the beach - Cape San Blas, Fl.
