2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask Conditioned at The White Lion, Fewcott, Oxon. A red beer with a dry caramel tone, almost powdery on the palate. There is a sign of hops through a boiled vegetable flavour though bitterness does come through in the end.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2003 Glorious ruby amber brown clear with medium size very pale beige orange head. Aroma is caramel honeycomb malt when cool and even more honeycomb when warmed. Medium woody cask bitter, grain and lighter metallic sweet malt start. Chewy medium strength roasted bitter finish and aftertaste. Didn't get much coffee. Very pleasant drinking

This beer looked good but, had no taste. I don't have anything more to say but, you have to have 75 characters so you just looked at this for nothing.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Really boring. Watery mouhtfeel, some nuttyness, peat, caramel. Really dry, which is a bit of a bonus, thats the only thing i liked about it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Are people rating the same beer. Mine looks like the picture - almost black!?! Large, long lasting head that leaves a nice lace. Aroma; malty, roasted, toffee. Taste; inoffensive, sweet, roasted-bitter, dry. Has a lot to offer considering "low" ABV.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear brown color with a fluffy dark cream colored head. Nutty/earthy/malty aroma with some sourdough undertones. Dry caramel with a murmur of acidic earthy malt. Dry dark malt finish. Nothing I can get thrilled about.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Deep dark brown-amber, creamy smooth head. Smooth palate, though not as creamy as expected from the appearance. A mediocre flavor, suggesting tea and dishwater. Mild aroma with only a hint of grape or other fruitiness (cherry?). Really very mediocre. (on tap, Hobgoblin, Oxford)
