sm89walt (1780) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 26, 2009
Cask - Dartford WMC. Pours dark yellow with a small white head. Quite thick and oily in the glass. Orange peel, piney hops and lemon on the nose. Strong grapefruit flavours, backed by resiny, lemon hops a rich caramel note and biscuity malts, also with a hint of its alcohol content. Smooth palate texture, low carbonation gives quite a crisp, refreshing mouthfeel despite the ABV with a final lingering bitterness.

bman1986 (173) - Broadstairs, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2009
Cask at The Butchers Arms, Herne:An odd beer this one. A barley wine aroma to it, yet very pale and more like a strong golden ale in flavour. Rich, fruity and quite syrupy.
