Bottle. Bronze with a small head. Malty with a trace of bitterness. Left a malty aftertaste. An excellent attempt at a lovely style that is well worth trying.

Almost clear amber beer with a good pale cream coloured head. Palate is smooth and slightly soft. Very fine carbonation. Smooth creamy malt, touch of unsweet toffee. Good dried fruits and a subtle fresh orange tang on the backend. Finishes smooth. Well joined up and very satisfying as a pottered about the kitchen getting me dinner!

Leighton (11322) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle at a ChrisO tasting - London. Pours clear, orange-gold with a fine, white foam head. Basic nose of lightly toasted malts and leaves. Medium sweet flavor, lightly alcoholic, with caramel and bready malts. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Faintly sticky sweet to finish with a bit more caramel and modest, leafy bitterness. Bland, but OK.

bottle amber colour with white head aroma is mostly caramel with fruity notes . almost a barley wine aroma . taste is underpinned by mildly burnt caramel with hints of orange . medium carbonation - body could be a touch fuller . alcohol is well hidden . not bad at all !

Amber with a small off-white head and a light fizz. Sweet malt and caramel aroma. Malt with caramel, burnt sugar, toffee, brown suger and other things of that ilk are also at the forefront of the sweet taste, with some orange and a hint of chilli. Finish is lightly dry and bitter with hints of minerals and herbs, but it’s definitely all about the sweet malt. After an uncertain start, I decided that I rather liked this.

BeerCast_Rich (1891) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 6, 2012
[500ml bottle, courtesy of the St Austell Brewery] Deep amber pour, thick white head at first, but it reduces pretty quickly. Aromas of toffee and sweet caramel. Wholly sweet on the palate, there’s some orangey fruit in there, but mostly that characteristic sweet burnt caramel on the finish [06032012]
