UPDATED: NOV 9, 2015 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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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 Iím not overly keen, but thereís no denying that itís a well-crafted recipe.

Hand pulled at The Wellington, Birmingham. Canít believe Iíve not rated this before. Dry, woody and hoppy amber ale. Good duration and bitterness. Heavy and not easy drinking but a good beer nonetheless.
