zacgillbanks (2249) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle from Open All Hours, Keswick. This is a cloudy red-brown coloured beer that pours without any sort of head. It has sweet, rich red fruit and currant flavours, vanilla and slight tart fruity notes with a creamy, warming spicy fruity finish.

chimpgibbon (296) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle at home. Pretty rank really. Way too aggressive in terms of sweetness and general flavour. Cloying and harsh, no subtlety whatsoever. Liquorice, malts, some dark fruit, but just over cooked.

Sweet and sticky, long finish. Not a lot of aniseed on the palate, its somewhat balanced, alcohol well hidden. This is a tasty beer!

MichaelAwesome (3880) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 17, 2014
Very drinkable one with some berries and hops in the aroma. Has something you could call a deep body but due to its balance an easy going one at 10 abv. Great,

Beer from trade with Beersiveknown - many thanks, Steve! The beer pours out in a cloudy amber colour with steady head and smooth body. Nice aroma of hops and wheat. Taste of aromatic hops, mild yeast, wheat, bread, citrus and flowers. Finishes intense with berry hints. High enjoyable.
