A classic Vintage Ale with an aroma which incorporates spicy hop notes with rich fruit character and leads on to a very full malty, fruity, sweet palate which has a surprisingly clean finish coupled with a matching bitterness.
I have handcrafted this beer from the finest Fuggles, Target and Super Styrian hops, Maris Otter malted barley and of course, our unique yeast to create a truly extraordinary unique brew. - John Keeling, Brewmaster

Still not sure why Iíve waited this long to even drink one of these... strange. Poured out a clear light orange amber brew with a decent sized bubbly light tan head that settles as a cover and leaves nice ropy lacing that slowly slides back down. 13 mins in to the Oilers v Blues game the oil are being outshot 18-1.... go oil. The nose is quite citrusy for this type of brew with oranges sticking out the most. Caramel is there and a bit of a herbal scent, a hint of biscuit maybe.. not sure. There is not a lot of complexity but some good depth for sure. Iím still impressed with the candy orange aroma. Tasty stuff with a good citrus bite and solid fruit taste with a surge of bitterness that fades quickly from its full strength but lingers for a while. Good spices that border on pepper, a bit of alcohol.. Iíve picked up a background earthy aroma.... more taste: tiniest of chocolate, plum, random fruit mix, you know... I think my taste buds have gotten bored and quit. Itís definitely not an exciting beer but it does taste good... just wish there was a more going on. Orange at the very front of the flavour set. OK carbonation, medium bodied, light dulling spice finish and a light coating on the mouth. If I have another bottle Iím going to let it sit for about 3 yrs before I get to it.

Great head on a cloudy, oily-looking orange amber beer. Subtle, mellow nose, with orange, pepper, prune, caramel. Smooth and silky body. Nice caramel flavor, very well integrated, with orange, apple, spicy hops, and a nice, spicy, peppery hop finish. Soft carbonation, great body. Interesting, mellow, and well aged.
