A good íspiceí type beer from one who is not overly liking of these beers. Not too overwhelming with flavors, a good overall beer.

A very crisp beer with a good spice to it. A pretty decent winter ale in all.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Had this beer on 12/10/2002. Aroma is faint with a sweet scent. Color is a nice clear nut brown. Carbonation is good with a nice head. Taste is crisp, clean and refreshing. Starting with a full/light body it goes down crisp with a fruity flavor coming on. Finish is a bright fresh flavor that comes in with a mild raspberry flavor and a smooth maltiness. Overall it is a great well balanced and drinkable beer, but its not a good winter brew.

It has been a while since I have had this, but from what I remember, this was a really good winter brew. Nice head, fairly smooth, but the flavor was quite complex. Had a nice spice to it, and once one drink was down, you wanted another to see if it was the same again. Some do not care for this kind of thing, but I am a big fan, I just wish they still sold it here.

Bottle. Not very impressive. Dark brown coloring, couldnít really make out the flavoring that well. Would prefer not to have it again. Not nearly as enjoyable as Peteís Wicked Summer.

Bottle. Poured a odd brown color. Nose of spices. Not very fruity. For that matter not very goodl Too much carbonation. Flavors do not seem real, though I gues they are supposed to be berry.

My cousin recommended this when he first started trying brews outside of a Bud_mill_oor. I donít remember it being as fruity as stated, but still much more character/flavor than a BMC.

This was one of the original í93 bottles. It seems to have spent 12 years in the back of a cool dark cabinet. Lots of sediment, so it may well have been live. The carbonation is very reduced, and there is a strong hint of sweetness. A subdued nutmeg and nifty raspberry. Seems a very nice and very smooth brown ale. Very English in the presentation. A great memorial to Walter Dobrowney.
