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.

1.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

440 ml can. Pours a clear, dark amber colour with an average, off-white head. Sweet aroma of malt and butterscotch. Sweet flavour of malt, caramel, wood and a hint of nuts with a mildly dry, bitter finish. Medium body with an oily texture and flat carbonation.
