Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Ruddy, ruby, dark brown - with loose lacing. Good fruity flavour, with deep burntish backdrop. Enjoyed this.

Cask at the Wenlock Arms on 23rd February 2011. Dark ruby with thin bubbly ring of off-white foam. Malty sweet aroma with notes of Christmas pudding. Spicy fruity body taste on back of a fresh biscuit malt overtone. Fruity end with sweet malts and slight bitter dimension. I normally donít like sweet beers but this one was delicate and well crafted.

3rd February 2011
Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival. Loads of beers shared with ChrisO and Harrisoni - Cheers! Clear dark brown beer. Light semi dry palate. Licorice, repressed Port and a little aniseed. Semi dry finish. Alright - quite well joined up and a little different.

Cask (gravity dispense). Beer #4 at Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival on 3 February 2011. Reddish colour. Malt to the fore on the nose - a bit moist and clammy with a touch of licorice. Slightly under-brewed feel. Light fruit and bready malt in the flavour. Very subtle lactic edge. Mainly malty - not a lot of hop character in evidence. Described as an old ale but could probably be seen as a malt dominated bitter just as well. Decent but I think it could have been in better condition.
