PaulW (99) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2013
Bottle from the Lakes. A style that has almost seemed to have died out in recent trends. The beer pours a dark Seville Orange Marmalade colour. Lightly carbonated, the beer smells of dark berries and chocolate. This fruit/chocolate theme continues on the first taste. The balance is good, and body lighter than you might think. It tastes juicy and summery on one hand, but warming and autumnal on the other. Nice and, now, just a little bit old fashioned.

downender (6391) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2013
On gravity at Bristol beef festival, 16/3/2013. Amber with a slight, off-white head. Sweetish, with chocolate powder and caramel, nutty malts and a slight savoury edge of green herbs, leading to a lingering, bitter finish. Good.

Very smooth and easy to drink. Aroma has plenty of toasty malt and the flavour also adds a chocolately finish.

thewolf (11193) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2010
Bottle. [thanks Søren]
Pours nice red-brown with a small, creamy, white film head. Aroma has malts, caramel, light toasted notes and a hint of cocoa. Medium carbonation, a bit watery and thin. Flavour is sweet, malty. Not much else going on... quite weak actually.

pivnizub (8948) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2010
Cask (@ Dog & Gun, Keswick): Clear, amber coloured, creamy off-white head; toffees in the sweetish malty and roasty nose; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied; slightly lingering malty-bitter finish. Just good.....

leaparsons (8196) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2010
Cask, Leicester Fest 10. Copper with a bubbly foam. Aromas re weetabix, cookies and chocolate with some nutty and citrus notes. Flavours are sweet weetabix malts with chocolate and some nuttiness. Dry, earthy hops towards the finish with a peppery aftertaste. OK.

RichardW (1529) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2009
500ml bottle, Rheged, Penrith. Beautiful red brown mid-strength ale. Gorgeously full flavoured, the malt really comes through, with a strong, ripe juicy berry flavour and the faintest hint of roast. The hops lie underneath, understated but just sufficient enough to give the slightest of bitter edges. A superbly made beer.

Ungstrup (29528) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2007
Cask at Wenlock Arms, London. A hazy dark brown beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with primary notes of caramel. The flavor is very sweet and quite malty with strong notes of caramel, leading to a nutty finish.
