Dark amber brown real ale. Cereal malty flavor. Watery bitter finish bit not so weak that takes away from the beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 .

AWS9 (463) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2013
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.

Cask, The Castle, Castleton. Amber brown with an off white foam. Aromas are woody with light apple and trace aniseed. Nutty with hedgerow and blackberry. Flavours are woody malts with pepper and earthy hops. Light apple with a dry finish. Some residual sugar. Average.
Earlier Rating: 4/14/2005 Total Score: 2.9
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.
