Pours mahogany with a creamy head. Bit of fruit in the aroma and a bitter taste with a bit of sweetness.

A delicious, flavoursome beer that is almost too easy to drink. Great mahogony colour. I will always give top marks to a beer that I would drink again and again and highly recommend. A desert island pub must for me.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask; brown with golden tints; thin creamy slightly off white head; taste is sweetish, thick, chewy malt, caramel, ripe woody hedgerow fruit; some ripe lemony notes; earthy hops give background balance; malts predominate in the finish; quite moreish; a good, full flavoured, malty special bitter.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mid-brown bitter ale and perhaps a little sweet for some. Not much hop flavours in evidence and even less aroma but it has a nice palate and is perfectly drinkable without over-taxing the tastebuds. Not in the Premier League but decent enough.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at the Who’dhavethoughtit, Glastonbury, 5th June 2011. Hazy copper with a line of head. Taste of stewed malt & toffee, cold tea. Again, a dull beer! Not as sweet as the Dorset Gold but the only sign of hops is a hint of balance and a tightening of the tongue. Nose has hints of band-aid and plaster dust. Sweet finish.

From cask/gravity at the cosy & tiny Newport Ale House, Isle of Wight 24 Jan 14. Dark golden. No foam. The aroma is peaches with some cowstable. The flavor is sweet fruit with some almond. OK - but a bit boring.

Cask at the Harp. Pours a clear amber colour. Aroma is rich, sweet malt loaf. Medium body. It's fruit cake - nutmeg, a little dark sugar and plums. Nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at The Claret. It pours deep amber with a small white head. The nose is earth, light spice, wood and leather. The taste is caramel, wood, butterscotch, berry, earth, leather and some alcohol warmth with a dry finish. Medium body, soft carbonation and viscous mouth-feel. A decent ESB.
