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 today’s craft beery world.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear nutty fluid with a small off white layer. Still a nice lacing. Caramel malty, a bit fruity and mild hoppy aroma. Decent body. Quite soft carbonation. Moderate sweet and an ok bitterness. Although it has a bit to soft carbonation. This one is still quite fresh and nice to drink. Not some dull dead caramel liquid. Fruity, herbal, hoppy and a bit toffee in the flavor. Nice ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had this a few times before but first time rate. Cask at local spoons. Mid amber / copper coloured pour with a small off white head. Aroma is nutty toffee, raisin and nuts, dried fruits, trail mix. Flavour is composed of semi sweet toffee malts, nutty, strawberry, berry, dried fruits. Palate is semi sweet, moderate carbonation, good cask condition. Lingering toffee and Berry. Pretty sessionable, maybe a little sweet, but really good malt character.
