Looks good with thin beige head atop a copper-brown body with red highlights. Mild aromas of malt and a little spice. Taste is driven by smooth malt, with sweet caramel coming through. Light bitterness kicks in toward the end, leaving a fruity aftertaste. Well rounded and easy to drink. Pretty good really.

500ml bottle - Mahogany body, thick beige head that dissipates rather quickly. Nutty aroma, a bit of caramel too. The taste is malty, sweet at the back, lots of demerara hints in there as well. Better than I was expecting.

A disappointing beer that seems to be lacking in all areas. The head lacks body and the dark porter like appearance is deceiving in it’s promise.was a real disappointment .

Dark amber brown real ale. Cereal malty flavor. Watery bitter finish bit not so weak that takes away from the beer

Okay pour. Solid nutty malts, a touch of caramel and fruitiness. Not exactly exploding with flavour, but no offensive flavours to report. Easy drinker too. I approve!

Had this cask ale at Old White Swan York. A bit thin though it looks better than it tastes with a nice clear amber color and nice head.

Bottle. Amber brown with an off-white head. Aromas are nutty with metallic hops and an underlying caramel smoothness. Flavours are nutty with sweet malts that give way to some fruitiness followed by a fairly dry finish. Not bad, probably better from a cask.
