Cask at the William IV (Brodies Autumn Fest), 4th Sept 2010. Copper/russet colour. Flat palate. Sweet with malts dominating, both on nose and in the mouth. Hefty caramel flavours but I was a bit disappointed.

From cask at William IV. Pours clear and golden deep orange with a small white head. Aroma is roasted malt and spiced. Thick malty, alcohol and bread. Spiced too. Dark malty and roasted finish, light spiced touch.

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2010
Cask at the Alma, London, Oktoberfest Beer Festival. Pours a clear, amber-red with a foamy, off-white head. Holds a hoppy aroma, a little soapy, with some interesting, divergent malts. Nice flavor, lightly sweet, with caramel and a dynamic hop profile. Medium in body with average carbonation and a very smooth mouthfeel. Finishes bitter with light breadiness and earthiness. Interesting.

ladnewton (1413) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2010
Cask at the Southampton Arms, London on 2nd October 2010. Copper with a white head and some lacing. Richly bitter. Maltiness in-mouth, sooty bitterness lasting to a satisfying lengthy finish. Engaging, textured mouthfeel. Excellent.

tdtm82 (668) - Essex, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2010
Cask at the Southampton Arms. Sweet caramel malts, way too sweet for my liking, grass, sugar, honey, floral hops, very spicey and something which just does not grab me at all and Im really sorry for this crap rate. Loved the Elisabeth but this is not one for me. I expect the brown bitter brigade will lap this up.

BeerViking (2468) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2010
An amber bitter, the spicy bitterness is mostly well balanced with malt. Notes of pepper, red fruit and a little sulphur. Crisp rather than smooth. A good best bitter.
