Pours a relatively pale gold with a decent head; the aroma is heavily fruity with hints of pepper alcohol. The dominant flavors are both dry fruit and the alcohol itself; this is a 7.2 that tastes more like 10.something.

Cask (gravity) at the Burton summer CAMRA festival 2005. Shining gold body, well fruited flavour with warming alcohol that never stays into sickly territory, split wood and pepper to the finish.

Bottle. Loved this stuf.. Quite flowery and hoppy, and quite delicate. Yet quite assertive. Citric rind, grapefruit, and some slightly peppery alcohol. I think this was very good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask, Burton Fest 05. Golden in colour with minimal head - light for a barley wine - as the festival notes state. Aromas are grapefruit and sweet pine with spiced oranges. Flavours are sweet, syrupy and viscous. Followed by pine, grapefruit and pepper. Zesty, then mellow with warming but not overbearing alcohol. A well balanced beer.
