DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2006
Aroma gives quite a bit of caramel, some roasted malts come through also. Taste is quite bitter, roasted malts amung the caramel and some floural grassy hops, quite drinkable but not to much going on.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2004
Pale copper colour. Toffee and caramel in the aroma, with bready malt coming through strongly. The mouthfeel was rather thin and lacklustre, with malt again, but not a lot of hops coming through. I thought this was a bit green. Needs re-rating in better nick. Cask (gravity dispense), Bedford Beer Festival 2004.
