3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very well balanced ale with both that deep malty sweetness and hoppy bitterness. The best of both worlds and the carbonation was a welcomed surprise and reminded me more of a champagne-like effect. Had a few of these last night at the Sherlock Holmes pub in Aarhus. Great cask overall, and one of the best Iíve ever had

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
13 Jan 2008 a pint poured at The Carpenters Arms, Bransgore, Dorset. Same pour and look as the bottled version, although the head was smaller and did not last long. However, this was altogether a different beer. It was nowhere near as tasty as the bottled version and seemed somewhat thinner. It was a bit of a let down, really.
This is what I had to say about the bottle: 15 Jul 2007 Bottle 500ml. A satisfying aroma of malts, nuts and dried fruit. Pours a lovely copper red with a good tan head. Lovely flavours, with the malt and hops shining through and blending well with nutty, fruity flavours, and a hint of deep roast coffee. A good full body and good carbonation. Smooth on the palate with delicious lingering tastes. A fine strong ale from Fullers. Good all year round.
So, bottom line is to go for the bottled version every time.
