Strength is well disguised by the perfectly balanced hop bitterness and sweet malt making it very drinkable and bursting with flavour.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2007 A really flavoursome pint that is SO drinkable. Doesn’t feel like a 5%, but after 4 pints you sure know it is. Lovely beer

<i>Cask Conditioned at The Castle, Furnival St., London</i>
Delicate, nice, caramel and fudge aroma. Round mouthfeel, smooth, with a good sweet caramel flavor, malt, toffee, and in the end, shy, a quality hopping appears. Good.

Cask conditioned at The Royal Oak, Bath. Copper with white head. Big fruity beer with fruit pastel hints, there are notes of mango with caramel / toffee overtones. Pretty decent.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2010
Bottle from Conwy Fine Wines. Shining bronze with a white halo and spots of lace. Lovely stewed aroma juggling rhubarb, blackberry, conifer and shortbread dunked in Darjeeling. Surprising, off-beam bottled effort slipping down like cream with an engaging interplay of fresh nettley hop, cinder toffee, well-squeezed leaf tea, fruit crumble and Allsorts. Interesting.

At Hucknall Beer Festival - A hazy amber body with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of nuts, fruit, and elderflower. Sweet flavour notes of malt, caramel, and hops, leading to a lightly bitter finish, where notes of fruit lingers. Not bad.

Fin (9684) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2007
Bottle kindly picked up for me by Gaz, a friend who lives up in north Wales. Dark amber coloured beer with small white head. Another decent malty and hoppy effort from Great Orme but again the aroma was less noticeable, pleasant sweet and soft malty flavours witha hint of fudge coming through with each glug, bitterness was there but came through at the end. According to the blurb on the bottle, described as ’being like the IPA’s of old’ I didn’t quite get that as I didn’t think it was bitter enough, but still it was a nice beer and drank much easier than the 5% abv.

Bottled. Clear dark amber, Aroma of hay and fruit. Dryish with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Bready with light crystal malt character, notes of raspberries and pears.Salty finish with low bitterness.
