2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On cask, poured into a nonic. The aroma is lightly waxy, a bit leathery, with caramel notes. The beer is an oily amber color with a white soap head that has light retention and lace. The taste is a medium bitter followed by a medium sweet. The oily and slick texture is flat. The light body has flavors of salted caramel, musty leather, a light, mellow citrus / marmalade and a light bread crust. The finish is grainy with an aftertaste thatís lingering, primarily waxy, with notes of caramel and grain.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Ship in Wokingham. Copper colour with a light head. Crisp, dry, woody and pretty smooth for a fairly strong pint. This has character but to me its short of Fullersí own 1845 class. I prefer the bottle version of this for some reason.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I did not detect some difference betwen Cask and Botle, so I repeate myself: Pours dark amber with yellow head. Floral / Cherry aroma and fruity sweet taste with dominant notes of cherry and caramel sweet, slightly dry finish. Medium body, soft carbonation, medium bitterness. Realy refresing good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Complex with a vinous and dried fruit quality this browny orange bitter is well built and pretty uncompromising in an old school type of way. Has lost a bit of character over the years but it is still an excellent symbol of the type of beer which was once more common than it is in todayís craft beery world.
