Looks good, very good in deed: Rich copper body with an overflowing head of tanned bubbley foam.
The nose was malty molasses and dark fruits: not overly strong but easy to pick out.
The taste simular to the aroma, malty and fruity, almost a fruity malt loaf sort of flavour, but not as thick or rich.
Medium body feel, would have prefered a deeper depth of flavours and a slicker/thicker feel to the beer: still OK but could easily be a lot better.

500ml dark bottle, filtered, from Tesco. £6 for four. 4.5%. A malty best bitter (or Old Ale). Good malt character. Some bubblegum and boiled sweets. An easy drinking and very pleasant beer, though perhaps lacks genuine character. I’ll be happy to explore further though.

Copper in colour and quite heavy on the sweet malt in the aroma. Quite a smooth beer that is quite sweet, nothing particularly special but drinkable

Nice coppery red brew. Some nuts, some fruit, good hops, all in all a very likeable beer in the English tradition. The man on the label looks pretty puritanical though, not really a if he’s just ’tasted the good life’.

Bottle as a gift from a friend, James being my name and all. Pours dark brown, short-lived beige head. Aromas are all toffee malt. Taste is toffee and metal. Pretty poor to be honest, better on cask.

Nice mahogany color with gentle but present off white head. Aroma alcohol with malt light coffee. Sweet gentle start into light coffee malt mid depth. Still bitter and sits uneasy. Served from cask a bit too warm.
