Not too bad at all, a pleasant surprise. I will drink many more of these, mark my words.

Bottle from Morrisons. Dark ruby/brown body with a medium beige head. Nice lacing. Aroma of rust, brown sugar and leather. Flavour of cherries, mushy banana and chocolate. Medium body with a sticky mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Delicious, and tastes very ’British’. I think this would be even better bottle conditioned.

Classic. Wheat and caramel on the nose, beautifully balanced fruits and grains with a sweet finish. A standard for the "old" ales.

Sweet aroma and deep mahogany colour. Tastes slightly of banana. Has an alcohol taste similar to a Belgium style beer. Quite a good drink.

A dark and strong beer yet also very easy to drink. If it wasn't 5.6% this could almost be a good session beer!!

Pours an almost opaque, deep brown with not much head. Dark fruit aromas and some yeasty notes but not too pungent. Loads of dark fruits in the flavor and it does have some slight hop bitterness thrown in. I can see how this is considered a "legendary" beer. It is quite enjoyable, complex and keeps you coming back for more even after all these years(est. 1827). Definitely would recommend.

Very good beer as one beer at home. Reminds me of home and the local brewery (of old)
