johndoughty (3716) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2003
Strangely lacking in body for a 5.8. per center.Not a lot of flavour although a slight fruitiness does fight its way through.Quite pleasing browny/red appearance but all round a bit dissapointing.

Cask at The Royal Oak, Lyndhurst-Bank : Amber coloured, nearly no head; vinous fruity nose, some traces of liquorice and alcohol; sweetish-fruity start; sweetish flavour; ending in a bitter-aromatic and sweet finish; a warming, pretty full-bodied and well-rounded brew !

bottle ... Very malty, you can really pull out the Maris flavor. Hop characteristic is weak but allows the malt to dominate. Toasty flavor with an appreciable ESB character.
