Martyn (15) - Greater London, - DEC 7, 2007
A beautiful bright amber appearance with a lovely fruity nose. An initial red berry fruit flavour is followed by a butterscotch middle and a superb long caramel malt finish balanced out with a nice hop background. A great traditiional british ale with a great appearance and branding. Lets get some younger people drinking cask ales!!

from bottle at mondial 2014, mtl. hazy dark golden pour with a small light beige cap, minimal retention and lacing. toasted grains, hit of caramel, dirt and soft earthy ntoes, faint fruitiness - some berries. moderate to low carbonation, light body - watery, dry crisp slightly earthy-peppery finish. decently crafted but nothing spectacular either.

Eructoblaster (2948) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle - 500ml at Mondial de la Bière (Montréal, QC). Amber body with a thin off-white foamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with woody hints. Its good hoppy taste carries malty, oaky, and brown sugar notes. Ends with a decent bitter finish. Not bad.
