Vladivostok (325) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2013
Pale copper colour. Slightly perfumed aroma with a hint of vanilla. Flavour is quite complex and includes biscuit and citrus (not too much). A well thought out recipe and I liked it.

jjsint (1397) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2015 Cask @ Southwestern Arms, Southampton. Dark gold or light copper, take your pick. Perfume aroma. Roses and gardenias. Taste starts alarmingly sweet, so the bitter aftertaste and finish are particularly welcome. Full but slightly oily mouthfeel. Personally I’m not overly keen, but there’s no denying that it’s a well-crafted recipe.

foxo82 (804) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2013
Hand pulled at The Wellington, Birmingham. Can’t believe I’ve not rated this before. Dry, woody and hoppy amber ale. Good duration and bitterness. Heavy and not easy drinking but a good beer nonetheless.
