UPDATED: AUG 24, 2013 24th September 2007
Warning! Early amateur rating! Dark bitter. Creamy and smooth with a mild tobacco taste. Not too bitter. Drinkable.
2011 note - wish I could remember where I had this because every one of these I have had since has been sulphury!

Cask at the Royal Oak. Almost clear amber beer. Light pale head. Light dry palate with mild fine carbonation. Light and unwelcome eggy note on the nose. Tangy malts, flirting with sour. Smooth but dry, Light bitterness. Whisper of dried fruits. It’s drinkable all right but barely passes muster. Kings new clothes and all that.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 5, 2009 2008-11-07, Cask Conditioned at Coal Hole, London, 7-5-7-4-15=38
Amber color; small compact head; beautiful lace. Light apples aroma, malt, grassy; later, freshly cut grass and Alpine flowers (they have a milder smell). The body is medium to thin, this Ale doesn’t surprise in the front, but later a good caramel flavor, with some sweetness and a fruity note comes out, and the body as well gets rounder. Very good.
2008-09-22, cask conditioned at Cockney Pub, Århus, 8-5-7-3-16=39
Bright amber color; thick head, sticky lace. It has a beautiful aroma, with malt, hops, sweet, earthy, grassy, light fruitness and light manure. Good body, strong caramel flavor, quite strong bitterness, good English hops. Dry and quite powerful final. Wow, I didn’t remember it so good!
2005-10-30, Cask at the Market Porter, London, 6-4-7-4-14=35
Beautiful hazy amber color; thin creamy head. Light grassy aroma. Good malty taste, correctly bitter, but the malts are too much mellow, not enough biting. Good.
