A deliciously robust, rich blend of hops and malt, including an English barley first used in 1905 called Plumage Archer. This traditional ale is lovingly brewed using barley from selected organic farms, including Duchy Home Farm at Highgrove.

Lubiere (9427) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 17, 2011
A hazed orange amber ale with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, sweet treacle caramel with light iron notes. In mouth, a sweet roasted malt, lightly nutty, faint herbal hops, light coffee, medium bodied. Not bad. Bottle from LCBO, BB 31-08-11.

CraftBeerNick (748) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2011
Bottle from waitrose, 16th September 2011. Smells like a normal bitter, taste is fine, nothing special, slight lingering sweet taste. Would not rush back for another bottle

solidfunk (2999) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 30, 2011
Quite enjoying this one at the moment, though mind you it isn’t the most amazing brew in any particular aspect. A nice touch of bitterness. 500ml bottle in Toronto On second thought, I can actually detect the oak - tastes like a touch of whiskey almost

imdownthepub (9622) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2011
Bottled, 500ml from Waitrose, Harrogate, N.Yorks. Copper with reddish hint and cream head. Fruity, prunish, plums with a lingering alcohol note, some wet cardboard, then the roasted malt makes a showing. Borderline stuff.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 8, 2011
Very floral aroma with notes of coriander, caramel, butterscotch and toffee. Clear deep golden coloured body is topped by a low but lasting white head that leaves some lace on the sides of the glass. Flavour offers everything the aroma suggests with some biscuity notes but floral sweetness comes across a bit too strong. Medium body with fair to moderate carbonation that doesn’t really enliven the flavours. Tulip glass. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle purchased at the BCLS in Jul-2011.

Atheist_Peace (884) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 7, 2011
Copper pour with an off white head that leaves little lace. Stewed prunes is all I can pick out of the very bland nose. Sort of sweet and fruity on the palate. Light easy going palate with no real bitterness.

thelynchfella (25) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 28, 2011
From a 500ml bottle. Poured rudy red in colour. Smell of sweet biscuit malts, light hoppiness in aroma too. Sweet malt, citrus hop and fruity taste. Very drinkable, nice beer.

500ml bottle
5.0% ABV
I tried this beer on July 23, 2011 after purchasing from the Queen’s Quay LCBO outlet in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent red colour, not quite ruby, with a thin white cap. The aroma was skunk, some nuttiness, and metallic tones. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is gross. Some sweetness up front, and a lot of graininess and acidity in back.
