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.

A Mes rate:
Sweet wine like aroma. Wonderful mahogany appearance with a reasonably well behaved head. Sweet sugary flavour that is not particularly balanced or refined. Alcohol is all too apparent. Strange full yet thin palate that ends up on the thin side. Sweet and cloying finish. Not too impressive.

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.

Aroma of caramel malts and raisins. Not too good.. Hazy, brown coloured with a thin, lasting brownish head. Taste is sweet-caramel, malty, sugar and fruits. More bitterness towards the finish. Smooth palate. Quite okay. Typical english ale.

(n bottle) With the first pour, a lot of dade and molasses aroma. After the disapearense of the head, itīs hard to detect any sents. Small trases of fudge, wood and alcohol. Dark ruby red, clear and no head. the flavour is more simpel than the aroma; lots of goodie-goodie malts and thatīs about it. maybe some liqurice and a very sweet/bitter finish, allmost too sweet.

[Bottle from BeersofEurope] Big malty aroma, raisins, orange peel, spicey, alcohol. well bodied but feels a little vacuous and the palate is marred by some tinny notes.

Pours darkish brown with a very light head. Aroma is sweet malts and caramel. Flavor is not quite as sweet as I feared, but quite sweet anyway. Decent.

Tried some of this since Mike Enderby likes it and had it in the flat. Initial tan head looked promising but didnít last long. Nice attractive red brown colour. Initial fruity sweet aroma. Can smell the alcohol but itís not overpowering. Flat, heavy initial taste and then toffee followed by fruit and tingle on the side of the tongue. Not much lacing going on. Dryness makes you want to have another sip but for me, there appears to be too much sugar. A cheap sherry with sprinkings of dust comes to mind. Not sure why I donít like this as much as I think I should. Maybe itís just too sweet for me.
