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

Bottle, thanks SÝren.
Had this after 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2006.
Pours clear amber with a nice, creamy, off-white film head. Aroma is light fruity, sweet caramel, piney hops and surprisingly flowery and fresh. This one must have been dry-hopped? Medium carbonation, lovely dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is really wonderful, lots of caramel sweetness, vinious, grassy, some fruitiness. Plant sap and a lovely bitter finish. Holy cow, this is good right now!

BeerandBlues2 (11048) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 14, 2008
Bottle. Pours deep mahogany with a large, frothy, off-white head, lasting with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (caramel, cookie, nutty), average hops (perfume, flowers), light yeast (dough) with notes of apple, pear, date, and alcohol. Full bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, moderate sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

Bov (10914) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 1, 2008
courtesy of oh6gdx, bottle #91889 - pours a clear reddish-amber colour with a slightly beige head; aroma of caramel, red fruits and malt; nice flowery hoppiness; full-bodied, slightly sticky, lively palate, robust and slightly astringent bitterness; long and very bitter finish with more red fruits and malts and a light alcohol touch - definitely needs some ageing

rating #500, bottle from Brother Tuckers. Dark copper color with a decent white head. I smell malt and toffee...but when I drank it I was surprised to find it a bit hoppier and overall a well balanced beer. A good beer indeed!

Bottle... Hazy orange ale with a mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. Terrific retention. The aroma is a malty swirl of toffee and caramel. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. The initial flavor screams caramel malt; however, 2007ís version is heavily bittered as well - medium sweetness and heavy, metallic bitterness. Finishes bitter-sweet, but then thereís a lingering bitterness that seemingly lasts forever. Muchos kudos to bu11zeye for floating this baby my way!
