4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
My first "buttery" beer that I ever tasted (1990). Did not get it on tap until many years later. Somehow, the bottle seemed better (nostalgia?). Delicious either way.

Dark amber in colour. The aromas are biscuity malts with a good deal of spiciness. Flavours are malty with warming alcohol and a good dry, warming finish. A good strong bitter.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2005 at the brewery in chiswick, on tap in states and in the bottle: this is another true classic in its category, if you want a little more alcohol and robust flavor then the london pride try this. nicely balanced crystal malts and a variety of hops with nice bitter aftertast. try it...youll love it!!!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Deep amber, OK head. Aroma is primarily of toffeish malts, with some frutiy hops. Flavor matches. Not as cloyingly sweet as I remember, actual rather well balanced. I used not to like this beer, but enjoyed this draft after not having tried it in years. Will revisit this one.

(Bottle) Aroma of Bit O' Honey candy. Dark amber color with dissipating tan head. Light lacing. Flavor of carmel followed by bitters. Truly wonderful. A little pricey, but worth it!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Great copper colour, pours with a fluffy head and good lacing.
Aroma is slightly malty, some caramel and some biscuit.
Flavour is very nice and smoothly malty - really a great malt flavour. Seems like there's some amber malt in there too. Not really much hop character but a drying finish. I really like the malt flavour but I think this is just a bit one-dimensional.
