Deep copper coloured ale, with a rich hoppy aroma, full body, fruit and malt notes develop in the finish. Brewed with three different malts and four different varieties of hops.

tombyars (1507) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 12, 2012
Tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival in April 2000. Cask, gravity dispense. Clear mahogany in colour with a loose white head. Strong over ripe banana aroma, long in intensity. Thick creamy mouthfeel and no lacing. Mixed complex malts give a juicy maltloaf base with rich, sweet creamy toffee pecan pie, mashed banana and maple syrup. There might have been a faint whiff of hop resins in the very brief aftertaste but heavy malt rule here. Finish is rich & heavy on the malt with almost alcoholic rum like notes tasting warming and sweet in the mouth. A superb new English Strong Ale, tasting far stronger and ABV suggests. Highly recommended in cask and worth seeking out. A very popular ale at the festival.

Gravity, Banbury beer festival. Bright gold, translucent white head. Black current, black berry, a bit of husky grain. Light marmalade and berry sweetness, a little thin for all the sweetness, and kind of hot. Not quite up to the usual standards for Milton. I had this on the Thursday of the festival. I wonder if it settled down and mellowed by the time Fin and Glen had it? Have to find it again...

Melon and sweet citrus. Medium body with a mid and full bitter. Quite a tasty beer.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2006
Cask (gravity) at the Lion Inn beer festival, Basford, Nottingham. On the Deep Black stag crawl. A rather up-front flavoured beer; smoky malts, fruity mouthfeel, a little too unsubtle for me to really love it.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2008
Cask at the Bell, Nottingham. This copper beer has an enjoyably rich palate, a floral aroma, and a fruity flavour with lots of lemon.

evilempire (140) - sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2008
A red ale with fruity overtones. not as hoppy as I usually like, but a very drinkable red ale with no alcohol burn, nicely balanced
