Bottled. A cloudy amber beer with a big and persistent head. Aroma of hops. The flavour is malty and toffeish, with a distinct bitterness in the end. Medium/full body. Very nice.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 16, 2007
Bottle. Lightish amber body, minimal carbonation, what head manifests contains large, loose bubbles and does not last long. Malty nose with a hint of the Fuggles. Thin body, smooth, quaffable, mild bitterness, some Fuggles notes.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Nothing very special here. Caramel predominates, but it has a certain crispness to it which was somewhat interesting. No head. Sometimes I find a real winner in these English ales, with their maltiness and their earthiness, they will present some underlying flavors, subtleties which make them memorable. This beer is not one of those.

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - MAY 8, 2009
Pours a deep copper/brown, without much of a head. The aroma is very malty, with some citrus notes. Heavy, with a sweet malt and molasses flavor. A bit flat in the finish

Pyobon (910) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 10, 2009
Draught. Clear coppery brown, good thick white head. Slightly tangy aroma, maybe apples. Creamy body with medium carbonation. Fairly tangy fruity foretaste with finish that is moderately bitter and has a malty marmitey lingering taste. Nice beer.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - NOV 20, 2007
Rating # 800!! Nose of captain crunch crunchberries cereal, bisquick batter, dried fruit, and flowers. Pours slightly sparkling copper amber. The mostly lastng creamy off-white head is slight and mostly diminsishing, very light lace. The brew is very well balanced with light acidity, and a nice tempered dried fruit finish. The flavor is exceptional, and this would make a stellar session offering. The medium to full body is creamy and soft. The finish feels clean.

Maybe it turned. It was flat. Malty. No hops really evident. Boring. Maybe this would be better on cask. I did not enjoy this at all.
