Pours very dark brown, black with a thin, of white/tan head which is moderately lived and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is sour milk, toffee, coffee, caramel and treasured malt. Flavor is sweet but very mild with a slight acrid aftertaste.

teorn88 (3489) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2014
Cask at WHOAF 2014, London. It pours an opaque deep amber color with a small white head. Aroma is mostly hoppy with a good toffee malt backbone. Taste is a bit flat with dried leaves, caramel malts, pine needles and dried hops. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, ok

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2013
August 21, 2013 - hand-pull cask at The Old Bell. Utterly beautiful clear bright ruby pour with a lasting cap of tan creamy head - gorgeous. Aroma and taste are very simple - more a light bitter than what I think of as a mild - floral, lightly sweet, utterly devoid of alcohol presence. Light body, slightly chewy/grainy, very mild carbonation and a medium-short floral somewhat bitter finish. Very quaffable. I’m getting another one, to hell with the pub crawl!!!

yespr (33597) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2013
From cask. Pours clear and golden deep brown with a deep amber glare and a small tan head. Aroma is fruity, toffee malty and caramelish. Bitter, toffee and breadish into the finish.

Cantabrian (905) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 9, 2013
I had this beer a long time ago. There’s very little I remember about the flavour and nose, the appearance and palate. All I know is that it was quite pleasant taste. Little left on the memory. After all it must have been already 2 to 3 hours ago.
