Rich amber coloured beer with hints of caramel, malt and a complex fruit hop aroma developing into a bitter finish and balancing the well rounded ‘malty’ mouthfeel.

BeerViking (2883) - 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, 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

StueyD (1333) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2006
A copper brown coloured beer with a thickish white head. A mellow malt aroma with a slightly sweet, vinous smell. The taste is bitter, of toasted malt and the miney element again. Along with a biscuity hop flavour. The finish is quite smooth and malty. (Cask - The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk).
