tastes pretty much identical to fullers 1845 to me, a real fruitcakey beer if ever there was one. yummy combination of dry firm malt and heaps of spicy dry hop taste - did i mention the word dry in that sentence? bitter but balanced. lots of pepper in finish. real good.

I found this beer to be very similar to the Mammoth, with just a litle less of everything - less alcohol, a bit less hop and malt taste, and not quite such a funky aroma. Would make an excellent session beer.

Hoppy nose with notes of malt, spice and maple. The body is warm and malty with peppery undertones and sweet hints of brown sugar and male syrup. Pours a deep bronze with a fluffy off-white head.

Dark copper colour with a well formed off-white head. Butterscotch aroma. Rich caramel malt flavour followed by some chewy hop flavour and bitterness before a quick, clean finish. Fairly thin on the palate, as with all of their beers.

330ml bottle from Blenheim New World. Nice copper colour faint head but does linger. Aroma quite malty. Nice toffee / butterscotch. Good body, sweetness thru the middle and a real maltbiscuit flick at the finish. Well crafted beer.

Copper coloured beer with a thick creamy white head. Aroma is quite malty, caramel, toffee, and a touch of vanilla. Light spicy hops. Flavour is semi-sweet, with vanilla, toffee, and a creamy toasted malt character. Light apricot fruitiness as well.

pure enjoyment from this brewery. Well hopped, malt, great with a multi-course supper. Quite drinkable and complex. Sadly the last of 5 great beers from this region brought back by Douglas D

Thanks to Sammy. Nose has tea and orange, sweetish malt. Flavor has orange, bread, malt, tea-like. A solid English Pale - I’d like to try this one fresh.

Copper color, slight haze, cream colored head. Fruity malt and hops go well together, orangy along with some bready flavors. Medium bodied. Pretty nice.
