Grumbo (525) - Suffolk, - JAN 20, 2013
Cask from The Railway Tavern, Chelmsford. Light brown with little head. Sweet and syrupy, though quite pleasant initially. Glad Iíd only ordered a half as sweetness became a little overwhelming towards end.

berkshirejohn (4402) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2013
Cask at the Bear (JDW), Maidenhead, ABV 4.7%. Copper coloured with a thin cream head; toasted grain aroma; soft and biscuity in the mouth, the honey adds a syrupy texture without being too sweet; the finish spicy and fruity with lingering honey. Rather subdued overall, but a pleasant pint.

fonefan (34404) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2011

Cask (handpump) @ Wenlock Arms, 26 Wenlock Road, London, Greater London, England N1 7TA.

Clear dark brown amber colour with a small to average, fizzy, good - fair lacing, mostly to fully diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, chocolate, caramel, light roasted, light toffee and honey, light hoppy. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration, chocolate malt, honey sweet, licorice notes. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat. [20110101]

BeerViking (2315) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2011
Wood and honey on nose, malt in body is overshadowed by more honey. Itís not actually cloying but itís close. Needs better balance.

imdownthepub (10021) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2008
Cask conditioned at The Woolpack, Banbury. Amber brown with white head. Honeyed malty beer, like a sweet malt biscuit with a dose of caramel. Interesting, but tiring on the palate through a whole pint. Little in the way of hops to break it up. Itís ok, but I would have a half next time.
