Nice head and a dark amber color with a malty aroma with a hint of cheese. The flavour is sweetish malty with hints of licorice and caramel and a nice bitter finish. Ok and easy to drink.

Bottle purchased in Cork City, IRE. Amber brown, with an off white head. Aroma is caramel, roasty, light alcohol, dried fruit, and raisins. Lightly hoppy taste, with caramel, slightly mettalic.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2007 Pours a nice frothy white head which sits atop a copper colour body. I am not a big fan of the hops used in the beer; for aroma and flavour, I find them a bit overpowering. I found the finish slightly too dry and a bit like pine. A decent beer which is probably must better in cask, or maybe I’d enjoy this beer on another day.

Deep copper beer with a fresh and fruity aroma. Notes of crispe malt, too.
The flavour is nice malty with nice citrussy hoppyness, fruity and with dry, bitter end. Not the most complex beer but nice

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2011 Draught 5.0%ABV (Gallows Bird, Espoo)
Welcoming bitter nose. Covers the tongue with rich maltiness and bitterness. Classis English style. (7:4:7:4:13=3.5)
Rerate: 500ml bottle (Drink Baar, Tallinn) 5.4%
WTF? Clear bottle? A beer of this colour is a magnet for getting lightstruck, the marketting people behind this packaging decision should be shot. Not so much aroma, just a gentle nuttiness. Let this warm to let the aromatic components really shine. Very highly attenuated bitter, really dry nutty and nut-papery bitterness. Despite being pasteurised, this is delicious and so full.

Nut brown colour. Aroma is dominated by roasted malt and some hop. Taste is dry but rich and hoppy. Plenty of malt there too. Quite easy on the pallet despite its relative dryness.

Pours a copper orange with a nice, foamy, off white head. Aroma is fruit, malt, floral hops, and some sour. Body is a bit thin. Flavor is a bit citrus, malt, nd some caramel. Finishes with increasing dry biterness. Solid.

[BOTTLED : 28/02/07] Not as good as it was from the cask but still a nice pleasant ale with good flavour and an overall satifying taste.
