On Tap at C’est What? Amber pour with a fluffy head. NIce aroma of brown sugar, and some bready malt with a touch of grassiness. Flavor is quite one dimensional with the sweet malt,and more of the brown sugar, a nice beer, quite drinkable, i could easily down a few.

Cask at the Victory - came a very dark, cloudy brown with a creamy off-white cap that left chunky lacing. Looked kind of like a nitro stout settling. Aroma of brown sugar, treacle, some herbal notes and a bit of green hop. Flavour nicely balanced between the sweet malts and the hops, with a brown sugar element appearing again, and a black tea/dry tannic bitterness from the hops. The faintest hint of smoke in there as well. A very nice pint, all-round.

Cask. At Victory Cafe Cask Ale Festival, January 2009. Slightly hazy amber, looked graduated darker/lighter in the glass, with an average frothy head. Floral aroma, backed with solid cereal grain sweetness. Really liked the taste - floral/herbal bitterness, definite cereal malt, and an undertone of cocoa bitterness - nice. Average body, slightly astringent, oily mouthfeel leading to a moderately bitter finish - not great, but very drinkable - many people’s favorite on the day.

2008-01-31. Ruby amber body with a small beige head. Lightly earthy, herbal aroma. Sweet malt, light caramel. Flavour is sweetish malt, caramel, light bitterness grows as you go and lingers in the aftertaste. Smooth average plus palate is lightly carbonated. Pretty decent. Simple and sessionable. I look forward to sampling this one again. Cask at Victory Cafe

Cask at the Victory Café. Pours a murky reddish-brown with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, light hops and buttery toffee. Slightly watery flavour is mostly of caramel malt along with a bit of fruit and a light bitter finish -- I personally thought it could be a little more flavourful. Average bodied. A little overly simple but it’s still good and easy to drink.
