JorisPPattyn (7715) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 20, 2006
Draught Just a little white rim over clear foxy ale. One wants to be the nose bi/uttery, but it isn’t really. Some malts, ever so slightly bready and chestnut flour. Soft sweet taste with just a suggestion at diacetyl. Has some discreet bitterness hiding in the shadows, but not really hoppy. Soft creamy MF, nearly medium bodied, only very restrained burning, alcohol nonexistent. Quite drinkable actually, just not very assertive, let alone great.

Ibrew2or3 (6521) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 30, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2006 Draught. Wow, I love this beer. I haven’t had it in a couple of years. I’ll have to re-rate soon. The malt complexity comes out and balances the hops. Yum. A very drinkable tasty beer.

On cask. Light aroma of caramel, toffee, pale malts, and some pepper and floral hops. Pours copper with a nice fluffy cask head. Flavors of caramel, toffee, a little bread, English malts, and some peppery floral hops in the finish. Nice drinkable cask ale.
