COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Filtered and pasteurised bottle and keg.
"Deep amber in colour, the pale ale optic malts in the brew gives this beer lots of raisin and caramel flavours that leave a satisfying, soothing flavour on the palate."

berkshirejohn (4534) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2006
Bottle: poured a reddish amber colour with an off-white head; malty aroma, full in the mouth with a nutty, malty taste and a gently bitter finish. OK, but not Fullerís best beer.

Fin (7421) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2006
Bottle, think that I got this in a Fullers brewers pack thing that they do, anyway itís been kicking around for some time. Copper coloured beer with a malty aroma, some nuttiness in the taste along with pleasant malted flavours, quite a nice beer for this autumnal time of year.

scotty (1053) - SCOTLAND - FEB 10, 2006
Although Iím a fan or Fullers beers, i wasnít overly impressed with this! Head was non existent, but did have a lovely amber glow to it. Very much a malt dominated brew,but I found it a bit unbalanced, there are some hops just noticable in the background,but they donít play a major role...overall...well, not up to much really!!!

harrisoni (13737) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2005
500ml bottle from Sainsburys. Attractive russet colour with disappearing beige head. Nice raisiny malt aroma. OK in mouth, but a bit too carbonated which is a shame. Some coffee on the toasty malts and some more burnt raisins. Nice warming beer.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2005
Aroma is doughy, with maltiness coming around, maybe a little hops of an unknown sort too. Taste is initially all malt with a weak body, nuttyness comes through to help it out later on. I think i drank this beer to warm could do with a little chilling i recomn ratrher than room temp.

johninmelb (1126) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2005
Bottle. Nutty nose. Deep amber with a thick creamy head and fiery copper centre. Flavour is malty, dry, and has hints of spiced fruit. Lingers on the tongue in a persitant and pleasant way. This lot just donít make a bad beer.

Bottle from Sainsburyís. Amber. Aroma predominantly malty (toffee and nuts) with pasteurised cardboard and boiled sweet characteristics. Little bit sweet. Carbonated mouthfeel, dry finish.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 3, 2005
Nutty, chocolatey, caramel malt aroma has notes of dark fruit. Clear copper coloured body is topped by decent white head that recedes rapidly to ring. Nutty, cocoa flavour with some caramel, toffee and the lightest hints of butterscotch. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Bottle sampled at RBESG 2005.

RBESG 2005, Copper colour with an off white head. Malty caramel aroma with a light hoppy note. Malty, grainy flavor with a faint caramel sweetness and a hoppy finish.
