"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."

johndoughty (3716) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2004
A lovely refreshing bitter. Sweet but not overpoweringly so with a lasting pleasant aftertasteTried it in bootle form which is very rare in England so it was a real treat.

RichardGretton (4177) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2004
Reddish brown bitter with a strong head. The aroma is hopped and strong, and the flavour is very dry, caramel and bitter. Overall a very good strong bitter.

Sigmund (4817) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2005
Bottle, RBESG 2005, Grand Tasting. Clear amber colour. Citrus and nuts in the aroma. Nutty flavour and aftertaste. Not bad for a pasteurised bitter.

nigos (630) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2004
Deep tawny red hue with a decent off white head. Hoppy toffee nose, rich warming nutty taste with hints of coffee and toasty malt. A beer with some good complexities. Good stuff.

johninmelb (1117) - 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.

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 2, 2009
Draught@Kittyís, Helsinki. Deep ambery brown colour, small beige head. Aroma is varamel malts, some slight wooden notes as well as mild grains. Flavour is at first wooden but gets a huge kick of licorice, which hides pretty much the other stuff. Mild spicyness as well. Very pleasant and different though.

rauchbier (3559) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2004
Bottle, from Sainsburys. Amber bronze, good lasting off white head and low gentle condition. Initially caramel heavy in the nose but with a developing hop note that brings it into balance and some fruitiness with time. Soft and fruity in the mouth with vanilla, caramel, a gentle toasty nuttiness and some butter notes. Long lingering roasty dry bitterness in the finish with some nuttiness.
