cask at No. 2 Baker’s Street in Stirling - Pours amber and has a light aroma of caramel malt. The flavor is caramel malt sweetness with light bitterness. It’s smooth and overall a decent quaff.

Muggus69 (1270) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2010
Cask at Garrick Pub, London - dug up some old notes circa Dec 2007. Served at room temperature. Pours beautifully clean deep amber body with dense white head and lace. Moderate carbonation, decent body of malt, creamy texture. Fruity nose; dark berries, malty toffee, which follows through to the body. Quite a different British ale.

Clear amber colour with okay head. Sour lambic-like beer - but in a nice way... Backlog.

Cask. Poured amber with a bit of an orange hue and a ivory head. Aroma had grain from the malts and floral notes from the hops. Flavor was a bit more malt based with both caramel and sweet grains coming through with an undertone of the floral hops.
