madmitch76 (18174) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2010
23rd July 2010. On tap at the Old Dispensary - Aldgate E1. Slightly hazy amber beer. Decent white head. Nicely balanced even malt and juicy orange hop. Misses a few marks for an appley streak. In good nick but possibly a few more days in the cellar would have been good. Perfectly drinkable nontheless.

BeerViking (3172) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2012 Pours a rich brown, slightly oaky on the nose but a big burst of malt, with underlying sweetness and rich woody hops on the palate. Full bodied with lingering bitter and nutty finish. Re-rated in bottle, malty nose with hint of pepper & hay hops, crisp & malty, but a very faint metallic tang too.

Cask, dark amber coloured beer with some rubby shine. No carbonation and a small off-white head. Fruity caramel malty aroma, with a full creamy palate. FInish is bitter, roasted fruity with a long bitter and dry ending. Nice one.

Cask, gravity at the Kings Arms Beer Festival, Kidlington, Oxon 28-03-08 Mid amber pour some jaminess and marmalade flavours otherwise my scant notes on this one would indicate that there is little more going on. OK
