Bottle. Sugar, cherry, and caramel malt aroma. Hazy orange-brown with small head. Sweet orange, caramel malt and mildly bitter grass/hay flavor. Body pretty light. Moderate carbonation. Pretty tasty.

SarkyNorthener (2396) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2013
Cask@Devonshire Arms, Burton. Dark amber beer with a small head. Aroma of caramel and malts. Taste is malty, caramel and a touch of alcohol warmth. Decent.

Scrapersnbeer (1491) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Caramel infused fruitcake aroma. Swampy tan appearance. Mixes the usual caramel sweetness with a tart rock candy flavor. Also moderately bitter for this style. Too light on the body. Not the best example of a strong, casked bitter.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Serving: Bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a dark amber color with a small light tan head. The nose has notes of spiced cake, light caramel, and dried fruit. The flavor mirrors the nose with lighter fruity notes and a touch of tartness that I can’t quite place. Medium bodied with a dry finish. Interesting.

RobertDale (3712) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - APR 14, 2013
500 ml. bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a nice off-white head. Aroma of fruit and malt. Taste is malt, apples, grapes, yeast, caramel, and florals. Interesting dry finish. Good.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5095) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Sampled from a 19 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark toffee color with a medium sized foamy orange-white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tart and sour Pez. The flavor was dry, tart and sour Pez, chalk and had a medicinal presence. Long dry, tart, medicinal, Pez finish. Somewhat overcarbonated and thin. Pretty awful.

after4ever (6265) - Brier, Washington, USA - SEP 10, 2012
500, capped. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a sudsy tan head. Big treacly fruitcake nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Treacly fruitcake mid palate. Mild sweet finish.

Slipstream (2076) - USA - SEP 8, 2012
Funny label and a super foamy pour. The aroma is light and bit fruity, with apple and yeast. A pretty mellow but still tasty ale. Complex, with yeast, lime, and crackers. Good, but not lovable.
