Deep amber in color with a fruity aroma which brings a complex mix of malts and mainly English hops including Fuggles and Northdown. With a hint of barley wine, it is ideal to accompany food.

mkel07 (3394) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2010
500ml bottle. Light ruby to amber colour with a flat beige head. Looks solid enough with hop and malt aromas with an underlying sweetness. Strong taste, almost whisky like, and you can tatse the alcohol.

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2010
Bottle @ pre-GBBF shindig, August 2009. Old bottle, not sure of the age. Hazy amber. Fairly malty with some sweetness. Touch of dry hop presence on the finish. Has held up reasonably well but not especially interesting. More like a fruity premium bitter than a strong ale.

A Mes rate: bottle at the ever brilliant Chris O’s Pre GBBF Extravaganza.
