3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Another beer that I used to drink regularly when living in Worcester friends in my local often used to ask for a Pedirog basically half and half of Pedigree and Owd Roger I think this was owing to the strength of drinking a whole pint of the Owd Roger.
A very dark red coloured ale nice toffee sweetness, very full bodied but the alcohol just lingers a tad too much though to be a classic of itís style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2010 Almost stout-like deep ruby with a creamy, yellowed head. Smells a bit like Vimto; honey, blackcurrant and chocolate also there. Quite silky, audibly prickling with carbonation, head fizzes out in seconds. Flavour has licorice, caramel sweetness, chewy dark fruits, Kasteel Donker and a great big slug of booze. Slightly roasted finish. A beer that unfolds its secrets as it warms. Going to try and stand up now.

not sure if it was a bad bottle but it's not the sort of beer that should go off in a hurry. fat head, full fat, sweet flavours - burnt rockmelon, burnt peach. just didn't work for me, no nice hops to get rid of that cloying feeling

Sometimes the circumstance under which a beer is consumed can elevate oneís appreciation of it. We had just arrived the cabin in Arrowtown and I drank this while the room warmed up from -2 degrees, and I must say that there could not have been a more perfect beer to help pass the time and chase the cold away. Deep copper with golden highlights. Aromas of burnt sugar and rye bread, and prunes. Delicious flavours of burnt toffee, sherry, and prunes. Full bodied, sweet but not cloying.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Humpers, Staple Hill. dark, ruddy brown with a short-lived, off-white head. Sweet, caramel, red berry fruit and candy sugar aroma. Flavour was a bit sugary, with a pasteurised edge some fruit fruit and warming alcohol finish. A bit industrial but still a good winter warmer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beatiful dark ruby beer, lots of malt, fruitiness, quite sweet, and I would have preferred more bitterness to balance this. But itís not bad at all.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sweet, oaty start, dry-ish hoppyness towards the finish, some light peaty and smokey flavours, and a bit of oak, some mollasses in there aswell, not real elegant, but not too bad either. Not overly complex, but it occasionally surprised me on the odd sip.
