ianwelby (870) - SCOTLAND - NOV 14, 2015
Clear dark amber beer with a beige head and a tangy, malty aroma. Flavour is malt with a touch of tangy citrus and an earthy aftertaste. It’s a bit livelier than I’d like and ultimately a touch bland.

AgentAle (1312) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 31, 2015
Aroma is roasty malts, caramel, light oak and earthy hops. Taste is quite pale but it is smooth roasted malts with a well balanaced hop profile. Finishes flat however. Appearance is a clear brown with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

On cask at the White Lady. Appearance - deep amber with a nice head. Nose - toffee and light chocolate. Light biscuit too. Taste - caramel shortbread. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - fairly rich and fairly refreshing. Good.

chinchill (3589) - South Carolina, USA - APR 22, 2015
500 ml bottle with a new label but still listing 4.5% ABV. BB date of April 2016 (1 year away). Accurately described on the label as "Slightly sweet and malty taste with a hint of toffee." Sweet and malty but, given this, the balance seems good, no defects, but limited complexity. Improved with warming.
