jmgreenuk (7848) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 24, 2012
Cask at The Anchor, Digbeth, Birmingham. Poured a slightly cloudy orange colour with a thin broken head. The aroma is warm and fruity. The flavour is very fruity and very slightly sour. It has a rich barrel aged feel to it but it Iím sure itís not! A well drinkable Christmas ale.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2011
Cask (gravity dispense) at the Pigs Ear Beer Festival, London on 6 December 2006. Reddish colour. Fruity malt aroma, with some plummy notes. Fruity on the palate too with some light, tangy balancing hops. Touches of toffee. Smooth, fairly light mouthfeel. Decent enough but seemed a little short of impact for the strength.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2007
Cask@Pigs Ear BF 06. Slightly sweet, caramel, with some light earthy toastyness, some citric hops in the finish. A bit boring, but drinkable.

rauchbier (3808) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2003
Bottle conditioned. Chestnut red, low head and moderate condition. Nice balance of hop and fruity malt aromas, hoppy start in the mouth followed by nuts, fruit and a slight smokiness. Finishes dry and fruity.
