On draught. Deep red with a small off-white head. Mild malty aroma. Flavours of cereal, plenty of malt, a little smoke, brown sugar. A moderate bitter finish. Medium bodied with very little carbonation. Well balanced and very nice.

Dobry bitter o miedzianym kolorze. Nisko wysycone co dzieki temu jest to pijalne piwo. Piana jak na bittera spora i nawet utrzymuje sie sporo czasu. Piwo wytrawne a finisz zdecydowanie gozki.

jamesie1857 (1347) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2013
500ml bottle from Beer Hawk - Ruby red body, white frothy head. Nose is heavy on the malt, some yeastiness there, think brown bread, sweet dough. Taste has a relative sweetness to it, in a dark sugar kind of way, with a bitterness at the end. Not bad, but the palate leaves me thinking something’s missing. Substance.

A sweet Old Ale with a very dark copper appearance and next to no head. Has a sticky aftertaste.
