imdownthepub (10653) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2014
Bottled, 500ml from Budgens in Broadway, Worcs. Brown amber with white head. There is a slightly fuller malty body / depth to this, quite earthy, woody in character there is a bitter sweet element. Earthy, slightly dank hop note. The beer is ok to reasonable, would like to try it in cask.

downender (6526) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2011
Bottle from Favourite Beers, Cheltenham. Copper coloured with a contrasting white head and slight carbonation. Nutty aroma with toffee and a trace of orange fruit. Sweetish, chewy, cereal malt flavour with an earthy edge and decent bitter finish. Good.

RichardGretton (4296) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2009
Bottle@The Mount Inn, Stanton (Cotswolds). Golden brown beer with little head. The aroma is gently malty, and the flavour is mildly malty and roasted. Overall a weak malty effort of a beer.

JorisPPattyn (8034) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 28, 2008
Small yellowish head, over paler chestnut beer with a light olive shine. Outspoken toffee nose, bit of parsley. Dry, soft-bitter taste, leafy & greenery. Very much like a top-fermenting interpretation of a German Dunkel. Pretty good, actually, growing on me. Finish has a hint of arachide. Light bodied, light slickness, pretty dry. Better than most bottled light British ales. From the brewery that I love, without ever having experienced it. <i> VERY big thanks to Darren! </i>

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2008
Courtesy of Fonefan. The color is beautiful, dark red copper and the head is creamy. The aroma has notes of toffee, malt and fruit. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of toffee, light candy sugar/syrup, light fruits like melon and papaya, and it ends dry. It’s harmonic, uncomplicated and quite charming.

Fin (7697) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2008
Picked this up at Belingers Jet garage, Grove near Wantage, Oxon, consumed at home 23-09-08 Pours amber in colour, this was quite nice if a little light. Some oakiness and vanilla where I’m getting that from I don’t know. Its quite simple, left it for half an hour walked off doing something else and it had really opened up even better when I returned. I like this, its tasty but not an exciter.
